As we approach our first full week of school following the winter break, we have many exciting projects and challenges to work on together.
You will notice that the sign in sheet , just outside of the classroom no longer has each child's picture beside his or her name. We are working on name recognition in print without the visual prompt. Also I am reinforcing the name recognition with our name tags the children use for choosing the "daily helper job". The children are doing great at looking for that first letter in their name and recognizing it without the picture.
Additionally, we are working on our name puzzles. Basically it's simply the child's name with velcro letters that will attach to work on the correct placement order of letters in his or her name. Later in the year, once we've mastered the placement, we will gradually begin with tracing the letters in each child's individual name!
That being said, it was a great first week back and the kids all seemed to be very happy to get back to school and their friends:)
We welcome Dag on Mondays to our group as his family picked up an open spot following Abe's departure!
Please see the plans for this week below and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
This week we’ll focus on various machines and vehicles that people use in different types of construction. The Rainbows will also come up with a “construction plan” on how they would go about building a bridge in our classroom. This is a fantastic way for the children to work as a team and come up with a step by step, sequential plan to process what tasks are necessary to complete a project and in what orders these tasks are to be carried out.
Additional Info/Dates to Remember:
Also please be sure that your child's change of clothing is weather appropriate as well.
