What did we do this week in Enrichment 4’s?
Morning Circle: This week, we read 5 Little Pumpkins, by Dan Yaccarino. The children did a great job acting out the story. Ask them to show you! We also sang a song about happy, sad, silly, sleepy and grumpy pumpkins. We talked about how we were feeling each day. Learning to express feelings can be tricky for children this age, so we practice it a lot at school.
Please label all outerwear (coat, hat, mittens) with your child’s name. ALSO- if your child cannot put gloves on independently, please send them with MITTENS. We have 30 hands altogether to get covered up for cold weather, and mittens are much easier for children to manage. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION!
Here is what’s happening in CENTERS:
Block Area- Duplo blocks, cars and road mat, puzzles
Math Table- Unifix cubes- students matched the cubes to pattern mats and had fun stacking them together
Writing Table- 5 Little Pumpkins coloring and sticker activity
Sensory Table- Pom Pom Pumpkin Patch

Lastly, on Monday morning at drop-off, please come into the classroom to pick up your child’s clay sculpture they made during art with Ms. Brenna. We don’t want them to get crushed in backpacks. Please let whoever is dropping off know. Thanks! HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!
