Little Lambs

Hello and happy Friday!

We continued our “Fun with Fall” theme by making turkeys!  A turkey is a big brown bird with great, colorful feathers!  We pasted two eyes, an orange beak, and a red snood onto our turkey.  For its feathers we colored a coffee filter with markers and sprayed water onto it to create a tie dye effect.  “Gobble gobble,” goes the turkey.

We also made a special painting using acorns.  We used acorns that we picked up at the park.  We dipped our acorns in red, yellow, brown, and orange paint—very special fall colors.  Using a box, we rocked the acorns inside to splatter and color our white papers.  What lovely autumn masterpieces!

We continued our ABC Hand Print project with the letter “G!”  The teacher painted our hands the color black.  We pasted on a gray head and tummy and two eyes. The teacher drew on eyebrows, a nose, a mouth, and two ears.  Can you guess what we made?  We made great gorillas!  “G” says “guh guh” ghost, gift, girl, goose, grape, guitar!  We colored a giraffe in the shape of a capital “G” too! 

We also learned the number 3!  We did a matching activity and a worksheet counting and coloring three mice.

Excellent job, Little Lambs!

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

Busy Bees

Hello and happy Friday!

We continued learning about our “Transportation” theme this week. We learned about the vehicles that fly. The Busy Bees were shown different Air Transportation pictures such as helicopters, airplanes, rockets, hot air balloons, etc. 

For the craft, we made airplanes using toilet paper rolls. We painted the toilet paper rolls with any color that each child liked, and then we waited for them to get dry. We added the wings and used some stickers to decorate the plane.

For the letter craft, the letter of the week is Jj. J is for jam, jacket, and jellyfish.  We made jellyfish for the craft. We also learned that jellyfish have arms which we call tentacles.  

For our writing practice, we traced the letter J worksheets using pencils. 

For our number recognition, we used flashcards and made a number train. In this activity, the Busy Bees learned how to read and recognize the numbers, and how to be able to put the numbers in order. Also, we are still practicing in writing the numbers through tracing.. This week, we focused on writing number 4.

Great job kids!

Have a nice weekend and see you all next week!

Ready Rabbits/Clever Cats

Hello and happy Friday!

November is for sure a very busy month for us!  As we study and learn about thePilgrims and the Native Americans, we are at the same time busy practicing our songs for the Christmas Party for next month!

For our theme day on Monday, we started making Christmas decorations.  We began by painting paper cups to make bells and paper plates to make hanging Christmas trees.  Two different decorations at once!  We left them to dry to complete the following day.  Since the paper cup was painted red, we added a belt and trimmed the rim of the cup with cotton!  A Santa bell!  Awesome!

The Christmas tree was decorated with paper baubles.  We glued sequins and small pompoms on them.  The trees were hung on the ceiling!  So merry! 

On Wednesdays, we enjoy Art/Drawing with Ms Melinda.  The children learned how to draw a rabbit by following the teacher step by step.  It is actually harder than you would think!

Thursday is when we have Academics.  We study numbers for the RR’s and simple addition and subtraction for the older children.

On Friday we have Show and Tell.  The children enjoy this day because they are allowed to bring a toy or other things to share and talk about. 

As the weather gets colder we find children coughing, sneezing, runny noses and fevers.  Try to keep warm and rested and see you all on Monday!
