Wheels are Important
Our BIG idea today is ” wheels are important.”
We painted with wheels.
We read books about wheels . After reading the book we talked about ways to travel and which ones require wheels . Some of the answers were a little tricky – like an airplane . It does have wheels but sometimes we forget.
We colored an emergent reader about ways to go , go GO! It reminded us of some ways to travel that we forgot when we made our list .
Emergent readers are a great activity to do with your child. They have words that are repeated through the book that allows the child a successful attempt at ” reading .”
I have heard it said before that January is the magical month. I know I have talked to parents before about boys and how they tend to start picking up concepts a little more and seem more interested in fine motor materials. I know we are only on day three but even in a classroom that has already been in a good groove coming back from a long break is hard. Our days have been great – even pleasant ! WOOT ! One. Happy. Teacher. ( Everyone stop right now and knock on wood. )
