B is for Baby and Body and….
This week we are still on the unit ” All about me.” Today Mrs. Dallas played a table game ” Heads , Shoulders , Knees and Toes” with the kids
While Angie, Julia’s mom was busy in the art center making crowns on demand ! Angie is a stay at home mom but loves working with kids .She loves it so much in fact that she has went to school to get her CDA ! in other words, she knows her way around a classroom. Thanks for coming today!
A new toy we got out today was Mr Potato Head. The kids love him !
In circle time we made an eye color graph and did some group writing . I asked the kids to finish my sentence ” When I get bigger…. ” Activities like this teach the kids that print has meaning. As they talk, I write and they learn that letters can be put together to make words and words sentences and eventually stories !
Some of the things they replied :
I will cook.
I will have a baby .
I will get ice cream.
I will have a baby brother or sister.
We also made an eye color graph. More people in our room have brown eyes. When I asked the kids what color eyes I have , they replied black. Funny kids.
We also talked about the letter B. ( So far this year we have talked about A, R, M. X and now B.) When you see these letters point them out to your child. Ask them if they recognize them. We read a book called Little B. Little B found all kinds of things that started with the letter B to put in her box.
As the kids came in this morning we started writing our names to sign in !
On the table this morning there were baby items to sort by color.
There was also a place to give a ” baby ” a bath.
All things considered it was a really good day. Mondays can sometimes be tough but today was an exception.
