Letter K and Christmas Fun

We had fun celebrating Christmas! We had a PJ party, watched a movie, decorated sugar cookies, played "don't eat the Reindeer" and more! It was so much fun! 

Letter J

From JOY to JUMPING JACKS to making JELLO...we loved learning more about the letter J! We also celebrated some cute twins on their special day!

Gobble! Gobble!

One of my favorite weeks of the year! I love hearing what these little friends are THANKFUL FOR!! We had quite a variety and I love their sweet choices and learning more about what is important to them! We also had a THANKSGIVING FEAST! Complete with turkey, stuffing, potatoes, green beans, corn, cranberry sauce, rolls...and PIE of course! I encouraged them to try everything and I loved hearing, "hey these are actually good!" Or "I have never had this, but it is yummy!" You will have to ask your kids what they tried and what they liked and didn't like;) I feel so THANKFUL to be able to teach your children this year and love having each and every one of them in my class! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Letter I

What better to talk about than ICECREAM for letter I!?!

We had fun adding sprinkles to our ICECREAM cones and doubling as Math, as we counted the sprinkles and grouped them by colors and talked about which groups had MORE and which had LESS!  

We had a fun relay race with Icecream cones, to see who could complete the race without tipping their scoops off (pretend Icecream from my play kitchen)

Due to my sick kids(SORRY!) we had to cancel one day, but had a make up day and had fun with those that were able to come! I love watching your kids learn and grow together!

Letter H

Loved the show & tells this week! We had a lot of HATS! Even "happy" drawn on fingers and Happy from Snow White, along with so many more! 

We had fun with Music and Movement this week and took turns being the leader, while the rest of us followed their actions! 

For language and literature, we read the Very Hungry Caterpillar and then for Arts and crafts, we created out own! We blew up balloons and painted with them! They though this was so fun! We talked about healthy eating and how we can make our bodies strong with good food and exercise! Health and Hygiene is always so important and they knew a lot about the good foods we should be eating. We talked about washing our hands, so we don't share germs!

Letter G

We learned all about GARDENING this week and even planted some GREEN GRASS! The kids had fun learning about how things grow and what they need to do to take care of their seeds to help them GROW. 

We had a special birthday this week and he brought in cookies to share! We had fun singing to him and celebrating!

Even our snack started with G this week! Gogurts and Goldfish! Love it!

We are focusing on handwriting and letter sounds right now. Try to find opportunities at home to practice these skills. Even when driving in the car, you can have your child point out letters and tell you the sounds!
