Welcome back! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your children. This week, we talked about the Solar System and the children learned about gravity and why its important, the primary planets, dwarf planets, moon, and sun. We did a Solar System matching game where the children had to match the cards. Each card was cut in half with the names of the planets to help the children match. We practiced writing simple sentences, practiced writing letter Nn and 13. We did something new which was color with oil pastels and we made a pastel aurora! The children loved using the oil pastels and have asked if they can use them again! We made stars using marshmallows, white painted and black paper and we made snowmen. They told me that they really enjoyed doing the art projects. I also have been focusing on proper pencil grip. Some children seem to like it and for some, it may take some time but it will help them learn how to properly hold their pencil.
We did Astronaut Yoga in the Great Room because it was too cold to go outside and the children seemed to enjoy it and we will try to do more yoga in the classroom. Speaking of going outside, please make sure your children have gloves, hat, winter jacket, etc. If they do not have gloves, hat, etc, we can loan your child one. I wanted to let you know that the children are not allowed on the bow tie, monkey bars, and rock wall with gloves on because of the metal or if there is snow and/or ice. Some gloves do not have a good grip and they could fall off. We want to make sure they stay safe and warm while we are playing outside.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Ms. Michelle!
