We started off our day with some collaborative-play rug activities that included wooden blocks, legos, mega-blocks, and hand-to-eye coordination toys. This morning activity encourages creativity, cooperation, and sharing.
We are writing!!! Today was our first day writing in our journals :). The children were very excited to be writing in their very own notebooks.
We had a wonderful time reading and being read to in the library today.
A big thank you to Tr.Nancy, our wonderful librarian.
SHOW & TELL
The children did an amazing job showing and talking about their baby pictures & family pictures. If your child didn't get a chance to present because you didn't have the time to provide him/her with a photo, please let them draw a picture of their family and they can present that to the class.
Over the past two days we have been practicing our gym routine. This involves doing the warm-up, simple exercises, and playing simple games. The students enjoyed some relay races, and playing duck-duck-goose, and hot potato!
In science we are starting a thematic unit on the 5-senses. Today we worked on the sense of smell. The students brainstormed things that smelled "nice" and "stinky". Some of the items on the nice included: flowers, perfume, soap, and popcorn. Some of the stinky items included: socks, bathrooms, skunks, cats, and doggy doo-doo! The students also took part in a smelling exercise that involved smelling different items, this included : coffee, vanilla, soap, apples, and tea bags.
Thank you to everyone that sent in snacks for our "snacks bank". Jazakum Allahu Khairan.
