What did we do this week in Enrichment 4’s?
This week’s story was Snowmen at Night, by Caralyn Buehner. A little boy wakes up and realizes that the snowman he made the day before doesn’t quite look the same. The rhyming text tells a fun story about what snowmen do at night. We finished the story with a Question of the Week: If you were a snowman at night, where would you go? The children had fun “voting” where they would go at night. Ask them which location they picked: Target, Capron Zoo, Attleboro Library or the playground.
Here is what’s happening in CENTERS:
Block Area- wooden blocks, beanie animals, potato heads, new floor puzzle, marble maze
Math Table- number identification and matching quantity to numeral while “feeding” snowballs to our snowman bottles
Writing Table- Cutting practice! We even started cutting simple shapes such as squares, triangles and circles.
Sensory Table- Cotton ball snow, shovels and buckets, vehicles
Playdough- blue playdough, winter cutters and gems
Pretend Center- Kitchen
Discovery Center- We’re going on an arctic animal hunt! Students searched for plastic animals in bins of rice and matched them to their pictures.
