We had a great week in the AM4′s.
The children were very excited about the new centers for December. Our Pretend Center has changed to a Post Office. There was stationary, cards, envelopes, writing utensils and stamps. The children were very busy making mail to bring home and making deliveries to their friend’s mailboxes. We have such a kind classroom of children!
The Sensory Table now has all different paper with hole punchers and scissors.
Other activities in our classroom this week were:
Math Table: Lacing
Discovery: Since last week was a short week, we had some more fun with the Wedgits this week. Lots of great building going on.
Project Table: Gingerbread Project-be sure to check out our bulletin board on Monday!
Art Easel: Mitten Dot Art
We read the book The Gingerbread Man.
Mr. Chuck came in on Tuesday and read Ten-Gallon Bart.
On Wednesday, we had our monthly visit with Miss Michelle from Oak Knoll. She talked about what animals do in the winter: hibernate, dormant, migrate. We were able to touch the fur of a raccoon, rabbit, deer & skunk. Please be sure to ask your children about Cookies & Cream, the mouse who came with Miss Michelle to visit us. Cookies & Cream came in his house. Miss Michelle took him out and put him in a plastic ball. We sat in a big circle and Cookies & Cream ran all round in his ball. Everyone loved it!
Show & Tell for Letter H will be on Wednesday.
Have a great weekend!
