We have officially completed our first full month of school! We have been busy learning how to follow direction and how to work with others. It has been a fun first couple weeks and I am so excited for the year to come!
In the last month we have worked on two stories, Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Bears. We have covered letters A, B, C, and D, colors red and blue, we are even working on reading comprehension.
In these curriculum units, the children learn concepts such as above, below, and across. We are also learning to compare and contrast objects using terms such as large, medium, and small.
Each week we have different centers to help build different skills. During the first few months of school, our centers are all based around fine motor work. Fine motor skills are very important in that they help kids build the muscles in their hands to hold pencils, crayons, tie shoes, and so much more!
We have centers from play dough, to bug hunts, to tweezer games! Take a scroll through some of our centers we had this month!
Mr. Jim comes and visits our classroom every Monday and Tuesday! Each week he teaches us songs that we hear in church and even some seasonal ones! This past month we learned songs for Halloween! Our favorites were “Pumpkin Jack” and “Willie the Potato Bug.” Ask your child to sing them for you!
We also have a special visit from Father Riz every other Thursday! During his visits we pray and sing church songs! He called up a special friend to do the hand motions for one of our songs.
We had our first on site field trip! Bubblemania came and showed us all kinds of fun bubbles! We saw bubbles dance and bounce. Some of us even got to stand inside a bubble!
We have been working so hard over the last few weeks developing our tracing skills! Come take a peek in our classroom and see all the fun fall activities we have been working on.
We love having free time in our new classroom! We have been exploring all the new toys and activities Room 2 has to offer.
We had our first birthday celebrations this month! Happy Birthday Joyce, Destry, and Jem!
