February Fun in the 3's!
We hope you're able to enjoy the sunshine today, and the warmer weather this weekend! I'm thinking a hike in the woods is just what I need, even if it's still a bundled up hike in the woods! I hope you find something that's just what you need this weekend!
Our books this week were I Love You, Little Pookie by Sandra Boynton and Pete the Cat: Valentine's Day is Cool by Kimberly and James Dean. These are two great books showing different ways a person could love and show love to others!
What was NEW in centers this week?
Art- We decorated Valentine bags for the children to be able to hand out Valentine cards in class next Tuesday. If your child was not in school, don't worry, their friends decorated a bag for them!
Easel- We used dot markers to color in a bear with a heart!
Math- The children matched plastic hearts to a different number of dots (1-5) on a page. This gets them counting, and recognizing the numbers that match.
Playdough- This month we have purple playdough with Valentine themed dough cutters.
Pretend Center- We're constructing in our classroom this month! The children can use (age appropriate) tools and safety gear!
Discovery- Shaving cream and cars were a big hit this week!
Sensory table- We're using beads, funnels, scoops, and some sand toys to work on our hand eye coordination. OH! And it's fun too!!
Have a safe and healthy weekend, and we look forward to seeing you on Tuesday!
