Week of November 7th-November 11th

We are loving learning about our five senses!

 

This week we have been working with our new unit La Tortuga! With this unit we will be learning vocabulary and concepts such as round, around, in, and on. We will be focusing on the color yellow and circles! La Tortuga is teaching us how to identify soft and loud sounds as well as the letters Ee and Ff. We have been listening to the story this week and underlining the letters we are instructed to. We have also been identifying pictures that have happened in the story and those that have not. 


Music

This week, Mr. Jim introduced us to some new and fun Thanksgiving songs! One of our favorites is the Turkey Tango! We are continuing to master our songs for the upcoming Advent Program! Please be working with your child to be sure that the songs are memorized! The day is coming up soon! 


Spanish

This week, Señora Maria has been working on the five senses as well! The children are now starting to recognize terms and phrases in Spanish that we have already mastered in English! We had so much fun watching some videos in Spanish about our senses as well as playing games! 


Centers

For our centers this week we got to enjoy playing with Mr. Potato heads, assembling our own La Tortuga books, creating turkeys, and playing with play dough! Once we went to every center, we got to enjoy free play! With these centers, we are learning important fine motor skills as well as creative expression. We can learn communication skills and build social relationships. We loved dressing up our potato heads and naming the senses as we added them! 


Room 2 had a very fun and short week! Everyone looked amazing in their holiday pictures and we can't wait to see the finished product! Don't forget, next Friday, November 18th, is Ms. Chyanne's Birthday! We can't wait to celebrate our favorite teacher! Have a great long weekend!
