We had 2 short weeks, but they were busy!
In religion, we completed our first unit, "Jesus Is My Friend" and started our second unit, "My Teacher Welcomes Me." In Unit 2, we use the story of Jesus calling the children and apply it to our life in school.
We also completed our color red activities by sorting red stickers by size in our Smartbooks and making red bracelets. Both of these activities are great for strengthening little fingers and getting ready to write.
Centers were also introduced. We keep them short and sweet at first and gradually lengthen them as the children's stamina and attention span lengthen. This week, we rotated through a building center (including Duplo blocks and our tool bench), a puzzle center, and a center with me. When the students have time with me, we review a skill or I introduce something new. This week, I introduced our individual white boards, and we practiced drawing horizontal lines.
We have also been learning about Community Helpers. We learned a few new songs and played a fun guessing game on the interactive white board.
We had two short but busy weeks!
In religion, we learned that we can be friends with Jesus. We practiced ways to be a good friend to Jesus and our classmates. The children discovered that by making Green Choices, we can be a good friend.
We introduced the letter Aa, how to spell a (short sound), building Aa with stickers, identified the letter Aa, and learned how to write Aa by rainbow writing in our Smart Books. Next week, we will introduce the letter Bb.
We also had our first PE and Music classes! The children really enjoyed them. Mrs. Oliver, our librarian, also came to read to us for the first time.
