Week 13 in Enrichment
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving break! I know it didn't look like it usually does, but I'm choosing to find the silver lining...there were more leftovers! I hope you could find the silver lining as well!
I'm so glad I got to speak with a lot of you on Monday! Because we don't get to see each other at drop off every day, I'm glad we could still connect!
This week was quite a week in our class! Not only did we welcome a new friend (Welcome again to Rosalee!) but everyone else was there too. We are now a class of 8. I know this seems small, but it has been great for being able to resolve conflicts quickly, and fostering better relationships.
This week we read The Mitten by Jan Brett. This story is about Nikki wanting "snow-white mittens". His grandmother, Baba, doesn't think it's a good idea because they would get lost in the snow. And that's exactly what happened. However, some woodland friends found their way inside the mitten, and the mitten kept stretching bigger and bigger to accommodate all the characters. In the end the bear sneezed and blew everyone out of the mitten. Nikki (who had been searching for his lost mitten) saw it flying through the air and brought it home. The kids did a great job looking for clues to see if they could figure out what would happen on the next page.
The new things in Centers this week were...
Red Bins- New Puzzles
Yellow Bins- Number recognition/building snowmen
Green Bins- Wooden Blocks
Blue Bins- Hanging mittens on a clothesline. They built a clothesline, then used mini clothespins to hang "mittens" on it! A great workout for those fine motor muscles.
Playdough- Blue playdough with winter shaped cookie cutters
Sensory Bin- Pompoms, styrofoam glitter balls, bells, tweezers and a cup
Pretend Center- Cookie baking
Art- Color, Cut, Glue, Sequencing Mitten project
As always, please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Sending my best,
