Good-Bye 2023 in Enrichment!
First, we want to thank you all for the generous gifts and cards. We feel so thankful for the time we get to spend with your children, as well.
This week we had a visit from Mrs. Lehane, who read us The Mitten by Jan Brett. It's a lovely book that we're going to dive deeper into in the new year!
Our books this week were Are You Listening, Jack? by Ellen Garcia and illustrated by Julia Patton, and the children voted to read Pete The Cat Saves Christmas by James Dean.
Our new centers this week were...
Art- Symmetrical painting mittens- the children painted one mitten, then pressed a blank one on top. When they are taken apart they create a symmetrical pair of mittens! We made applesauce cinnamon ornaments (NOT EDIBLE). The kids added the ingredients, stirred up the dough, and cut shapes out with cookie cutters! It was lots of fun and the room smelled AMAZING while they were drying! Today we decorated bell cutouts with stickers, and wrapped those very special gifts that came home with them today.
Easel- We made scratch ornaments using sticks to make a design in the scratchboard shapes, and stamps on mittens.
Math- I Never Forget a Face matching game- matching pictures of different children from around the world
Discovery- Emoji feelings matching- matching the emojis to show feelings (happy, sad, angry, tired etc.)
This was a short, but busy week in our class!
We wish you all a happy and healthy break. And we will see you again on Wed. Jan. 3rd!
