Room 3 News Week of 1/23-1/27

We started our week with a Valentine's Day 'step by step direct to draw' activity.  The children did a great job listening to oral instructions!  They enjoyed making these beautiful puppy dog drawings!  We have some artists in the making at St. Peter!

The girls are making sure they are using the right color.

The boys are listening to the step by step process very intently.

The children enjoyed our unit on penguins this month.  They danced and "waddled" like penguins.

The weather delivered an unexpected surprise this week in Simi Valley!  The combination of rain and cold mornings gave us a nice layer of frost in the playground area.  The children immediately discovered the 'snow' and got very excited!  So of course we had to go check it out and explore!

In Language Arts this week we continue with "Jingles, Poems, and Rhymes".  Our lesson this day consisted of position words.  We had to listen to the instructions and color the squares being described. 

One of our projects due this week was to bring our "All About Me" posters.  Thank You families for turning them in on time!  The children had a great time sharing the posters with the class!  When you have a minute, please come in the classroom and check out all of the wonderful posters and get to know a little bit more about our families in Room 3.
