Ending January in Mixed Age
Hello Mixed Age Families,
Our last full week of January was very busy and productive. Everyone has enjoyed the centers this month and we think next month will be the same. I have enjoyed having our indoor recess time running through the obstacle course and dancing to the fun music "DJ Fyrberg" has been choosing. The kids practiced writing the number 11 this morning since we had 11 friends at school.
Looking ahead to Valentines Day: We will be having the kids pass out Valentines for their classmates. We have 12 kids in our class and we ask they everyone decorate a box (tissue, cereal or shoe) any way you would like to. Please attach a picture of your child and their name as well. Please no candy to pass out. We look forward to seeing the creative boxes that come in. We will be celebrating on Monday February 14 but if the box is done early please feel free to bring it in anytime. Thank you!
Here is what we did in the classroom this week:
Math Table~ Shapes along with small glass gems. The loved filling up the shapes with the gems; they sometimes filled up the whole shape or just put the on the edges of the shape.
Discovery: Small red cups with popsicle sticks. Always a hit and fun to build with.
Easel~ Water coloring snow hats
Art/Writing Table~ Decorating snow hats with washi tape, pompoms and small paper shapes. We have lots of hats decorating the classroom. Coloring sheets, snowflakes with dot stickers, laminated ABC sheets with dry erase markers were at the writing table this week.
Sensory Table~ The kids have really enjoyed the sand in the table this month and looking at all the fossils, shells, rocks and geodes.
