Not only have the students become accustomed to our daily routine, but they have also become familiar with our class rules. Our class rules include walking feet, helping hands, sharing spirits, looking eyes, listening ears, and caring hearts. You may hear some of these phrases repeated at home:)
At centers on Wednesday, the students practiced their cutting skills, made their September placemat (decorated with a figure of either a boy or girl and the students age), and played with the ladders and bristle blocks.
At circle time, we counted the letters in our name and then discussed which friends had the same amount of letters in their name, which friends had the most letters in their name, and which friends had the least letters in their name.
We also read a cute book about a shark that has a tendency to eat things when he is excited at school! The students really enjoyed this book and have requested it several times since!
On Thursday, we enjoyed music with Mrs. Jenna!
At our centers, the students colored the first letter of their name, painted their "Mini Me", and played with Mr. Potato Head.
Friday was a rainy day, so we had a little extra play time in the morning. For morning work, the students used some of our extra people figures and heart and star cutouts to create their own pictures. They all turned out super cute and Buttercup and I enjoyed hearing about each child's creation! There were lot's of pictures of mommy's and daddy's, and brother's and sister's created.
I also snapped a few pictures of the children playing. They play so nicely together!
At centers, the students decorated their "Mini Me" by drawing a face and adding clothes and hair. At another center, the students used dotter markers to decorate their artwork memory folder which we will be sending home next week. These folders can be used to store all of the crafts and school work the children complete!
