|Attempting a somersault in the snow.|
The weather did not cooperate for long it was too cold to venture outside. So we decided to bring the snow inside for the children to play with in the sensory table,
Over the past two weeks, we focused on the letters Q and H. The children used q-tips to dot the first initial of their name and to create a q-tip mural. We are also very excited that all the children can find their name cards, so we have moved on to tracing their names. They will continue to do this every morning. The children also worked the small muscles in their hand by placing beads on pipe cleaners.
After reading the Gingerbread Baby, the children decorated their own gingerbread baby with their picture in the middle of the gingerbread baby’s tummy.
In math, they used numbered cards to count objects and clip the clothes pins on to the correct number. Small groups of children played candy land. while doing this they worked on counting, building their patience and being good sports by not cheating.
