This week we finished our water science unit. We introduced a dress up area in dramatic play this week. Dress up seemed like a great area with Purim coming. Thank you to Logan’s family for donating dress up clothes. Our letter of the week next week is Vv.
Monday is our quiet day in Sagol. Elijah K. was our helper for the day. The children loved art with Ms. Beth. They made Purim clowns.
We also talked about our letter of the week Uu.
On Tuesday, we began some of the SecondStep lessons again, as our lessons are done for the year. We are going to do some work with lessons that need periodic review. Some of the children brought things that began with the letter Uu to share. Our art was U is for Unicorn. Many of the children wanted to take them home, but they are in our alphabet binders. I promised them that you would all see them soon. We started a word list on the board. The children enjoyed building with blocks, dressing up, and playing with the castle we made from the things that were brought in for our reused things sculptures.
Wednesday, we had another lesson about listening and more children brought in items that begin with Uu. Our art was u is for underwater.
Thursday and Friday, I was out for my daughter’s wedding so Miss Sarah subbed for me. On Thursday they explored snow in the sensory table. They also played with play-doh which they were very excited about.
Friday, we will have Shabbat with Eli P as our helper and we will have some extra fun with Miss Sarah.
All of the children are getting cabin fever. Let’s hope that it warms up soon so they can play outside!
Next week we will introduce The Five Senses. We will have bird seed in the sensory table and an opportunity to separate the seeds by type if they wish. Bird seed has a very interesting feel.
