Transportation- land 

This week we learned all about different types of land transportation. The kids enjoyed many different stories. We talked about how you can travel from one place to another.

They loved making tire tracks with different types of wheels and tracing the outlines of the letter to their first name with little cars.

Snow day fun photos

Snow cute

We had so much fun last week learning about the season of Winter. The kids loved snow day! This year our ” snow room ” was even more special because we not only had a room full of fluffy cotton balls but we also had a snow sensory bin that looked and felt like real snow! The kids also got to build snowmen out of play dough. They enjoyed the artic animals frozen on ice and a game of bowling for snowmen. Thanks to all the parents for sending in cotton balls and everyone who worked to make snow day so fun. The next two weeks we will continue to learn about the season of Winter. In February we will be learning all about means of transportation. February 1st we will be sending home ASQ booklets for parents to fill out. We ask that you please send them back and completed on or before February 5th. This is a mid- year developmental screening that we will score and send the results home in the following week. These assessments along with daily and monthly observations help us when planning for the upcoming months. This information will help us in work with the children in small groups,individually and on the areas they need most.

 

We are looking forward to to planning wonderful fun activities now and the months to come.
