Little Lambs

Hello and happy Friday!

We continued our “Fun with Fall” theme by making turkey tracks.  We took pipe cleaners shaped like turkey feet and dipped them in orange and brown paint.  Some of us used our turkey feet to walk across the paper and some of us used our turkey feet to jump, jump, jump! 

We also made a scarecrow.  Our scarecrow had a brown face with two big eyes, a black stitched mouth, a long nose, straw hair, and a pointy hat atop its head.  The Little Lambs enjoy dancing to the Scarecrow song every day!

We continued our ABC Hand Print project with the letter “H!”  The teacher painted our hands the color light blue.  We pasted on two eyes. The teacher drew on a mouth with white teeth, two ears, toes, and a tail.  Can you guess what we made?  We made happy hippos!  “H” says “huh huh” hammer, hat, hair, head, heart, hose!  We colored a horse in the shape of a capital “H” too! 

We also learned about the shape of a square.  A square has four even sides and four corners.  We practiced searching for a square shape and we also practiced making a square too!

One of our books this month is Dr. Seuss’ Ten Apples Up on Top.  Throughout the month we’ve been counting apples.  We did a special work sheet dabbing red apples atop the heads of a lion, a tiger, and a dog, just like in our book!

Fabulous job, Little Lambs!

Keep up the good work and we’ll see you next week!

Busy Bees

Hello and happy Friday!

This week, the Busy Bees continued learning about our Transportation theme for this month. We focused on learning the vehicles that goes in the water. We used pictures to show them the different vehicles that go in the water such as a submarine, a sail boat, a ship, a canoe, a jet ski etc.  

For the craft, we made our own submarines using paper plates. A submarine is a ship that can go underwater. They painted their submarine and used colored tissue paper for the ocean. Then we added some sea animals into it when it was dry.

We also did some review by sorting the pictures of the different vehicles. They have to identify which one goes in the water, in air, or on land. They were able to name the vehicles and did the sorting by themselves without the teachers help.

For the letter craft, the letter of this week is Kk. K is for kitten, koala, and kangaroo. We made a kangaroo for the craft. We also traced and practiced writing letter K and did some alphabet game.

On Thursday, the Busy Bees are still practicing how to write the numbers through tracing. We are still using flash cards and different manipulatives for them to engage more in learning numbers.

On Friday, we already started making some Christmas crafts. We made some ornaments that we can hang in our Christmas tree.

Great job, Busy Bees!

Have a nice weekend and see you all next week!

Hello and happy Friday!

We started the week decorating our Christmas wreaths that we had cut and glued earlier with pompoms and cute ornaments.   

On another day we made twirly snowman out of paper plates and used construction paper to cut out the hat, arms, and eyes.  Some of the children drew the face with markers.  They all look so happy hanging on the ceiling!

In America they celebrate Thanksgiving on the 24th Thursday of November so the RR’s and CC’s had a Thanksgiving feast! The children made cornbread and mashed potatoes. The teachers prepared the chicken nuggets, corn, and gravy.  It was such a fun cooking day!  No sad faces during lunch today!  Happy Thanksgiving!

Have a fun weekend!
