Week of August 26

This week we are wrapping up our "getting to know you" unit.  We have been getting to know each other, our school rules, and our school routines.  We will continue to work on these through the month of September.  Be sure to ask your child about "criss-cross applesauce, spoons in the bowl, " "hugs and bubbles," and the places we go in the school.

Here is what we are doing this week:
Literacy: ABC intro
Math:  Sorting and graphing
Science:  Hand washing
Social Studies:  My community

Fine Motor:  Making Puffy lines, using tongs and cotton balls, cutting
Dramatic Play:  Community play
Math:  graphing candy and individual work
Literacy:  Alphabet games
Art:  Drawing ME

Other activities include:
Going to the library
Show and tell
Learning to wash our hands

Learning our school rules and routines

New School Year

Our 2013-2014 school year is off to a great start!  We are really enjoying getting to know all of our new students, and spending time with those we have had before.  The class is a lot of fun, and we just know we are going to have a wonderful school year!

I wanted to let everyone know a bit about Show and tell.  We do show and tell every Thursday and Friday.  Your child's day is whichever one is their last day of the week.  Typically, there will be a theme for you to follow, based on what we are learning.  For the month of August, the theme is "All About Me" and we are letting students bring anything they want so we can learn more about them!

I will use this space weekly (hopefully) to let you know what we are up to in that week.  I will let you know about the centers, letters, and other activities we will be doing.  Some weeks I am better than others, but I will always try.  Please know that if you ever have any questions, feel free to contact me via email at any time!
