We are so excited to start our new school year! The children did a great job our first week following directions and learning our routines! We introduced our Green and Red Choices chart, which helps us to learn classroom rules and appropriate behaviors.
We introduced our first Religion unit that focused on Bible stories teaching us that Jesus loves us and wants to be our friend. The Terrific Threes read "Let the Children Come to Me" and the Fantastic Fours read "Jesus Calls His Friends (disciples)."
In both classes, we read stories about characters returning to school. We discussed the characters' red and green choices, and compared their schools to ours. We read How Do Dinosaurs Go to School? and Pete the Cat Rocking My School Shoes.
We reviewed colors by playing gamed on our interactive board. The Fantastic Fours also sorted stickers by color in their Smart Books.
To start our year off on a fun note, we began with a Beach theme. We sang songs, played movement games, and each class created a Beach themed art project.
In Fantastic Fours, we introduced straight lines. We sorted letter magnets to find letters with straight lines. We also practiced building straight lines with flat marbles and tracing straight lines.
Enjoy a few pictures from our first week!
