We talked about the shapes of the signs and tried to copy them. We had to work hard to make straight or curvy lines.
If we needed a different color than the primary colors, we had to remember what we had studied about color mixing and then mix our own colors to use on our signs.
We also had a new interactive chart center today.We pick a name from our name list and then pick out letters that look like the letters in the name. We put them in order and then sing a song about the letters and our names to the tune of B-I-N-G-O.
We are also enjoying our new centers, including our word builder center and our alphabet train center. We like to work in teams and negotiate with each other as we use new materials. It is hard taking turns and waiting, but we are so kind to one another.
We built our counting skills and practiced patience while we played The Very Hungry Caterpillar game.
Next week will begin our study of Animals in Winter!
Do you own any fake furs or brown colored vests? Anything that would make a great bear/rabbit/goose/forest animal animal tail? We could use them as we turn creative play into a winter animal habitat!
