Wow! We have been very busy over the last two weeks. The children have been learning so much all while they are exploring nature and having fun with their classmates.
|We have filled the bird feeders with food and get to watch all the different types of birds that are here at Knoch Knolls.|
There is also a mouse and a squirrel that have been partaking in some food.
In Language Arts, we focused on the letters 'S', 'W', and 'D'. To reinforce the letter 'S' we talked about snow and read The Biggest Snowman. To reinforce the letter'W', we turned a 'W' into a watermelon and read the story Waiting for Winter. To reinforce the letter 'D', we dot painted the letter 'D' and each child's name.. Throughout the month we continued to work on having each child write their name. As the muscles in their hands get stronger it will get easier and easier for them.

In Art, we talked about how no two snowflakes are the same. The children had a great time making pretend snowflakes from their painted, glittery coffee filters. The children also made great winter scenes using koosh balls and white paint. They were each as unique and different as the children.

The sensory table is always a big hit in our classroom. This month, the children searched through shredded paper to discover many hibernating animals. To celebrate the coming of Winter, we placed mashed potato flakes in the sensory table as pretend snow. the children loved using the scooped and the sifts with them. When it became too cold for us to go outside and play in the snow, we brought the snow inside. It was big fun.
