We began our week with Baa, Baa Black Sheep and our new unit on rhyming words. It was difficult at first, but then the children caught on and rhyming words became a fun game. Even the silly ones.
It was especially fun watching them paint with toy mice! Not only did they swish the tails in paint, they figured out how to make foot prints.
A new fine motor activity was out to try and squish pompoms through the cheese jar! Good for little fingers!
I have been working with them on patterning ABAB patterns and moving on to more complex patterns as well, ABCABC
We added more free art time and music this week. (We have some really good dancers in this group!)
We had a special treat to visit Miss Cheryl's room to see the newly hatched chicks...so furry! We tried our patience with "looking only".
And of course a good day ends with my superheros!

I'm so lucky to have such great children and their parents in my class! I enjoyed time with all of you!
This was a great followup activity to our previous farm unit. I hope to have a "zoo day" in the Spring!
Silly hat day was a fun alternative to costumes (and hopefully easy on mom and dad!)
