February 20th-March 3rd
We had so many fun things happening in and out of the classroom the past couple of weeks! The weather was very cooperative which led to many exciting hikes! Celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday was a definite hit! Who can go wrong with Oobleck, Green Eggs and Ham and Fish Printing? Now, we welcome March!
In language arts, we read “ The Right Number of Elephants,” “ Quiet Cricket,” “Red Fish, Blue Fish,” and "Mr. Brown can Moo-Can You?”. Our letters for each week were “E” and “Q”.
In math, we worked on sorting animals by color and family, counting with cars, counting with the teeth / dice game, bead patterning and counting with goldfish.

In dramatic play, we took on the roles of dentist, dental hygienist, patient and receptionist in our dental office. We roared, quacked and growled as we put on puppet shows in our puppet theater.
In sensory, we dug through “grass” to find animals that lay eggs. We brushed a pretend tooth with real toothpaste and tooth brushes. Did we get the tooth clean? In honor of Dr. Seuss, we had a lot of fun getting messy with Oobleck!
In art, we painted with toothbrushes, decorated letter “E” with google eyes, elephant stamps and the number eight. We painted with tooth brushes and Q-tips on letter “Q.” We created quilts with fabric squares and made unique red, blue ( and purple too ) fish prints.
