Being my birthday week, I thought it would be fun for the children to play with the toys I played with when I was younger. So we had etch-a-sketch, Potato Head, Candy land, trolls, Tinkertoys, Dr. Suess books, slinkys, snap together toys, matchbox cars (those were my brothers), and my favorite Paint!
We had a great week and it was fun to watch the kids. I heard "Miss Kathi, I don't like this iPad-it doesn't have any games!" (etch-a-sketch) LOL
We've been working on our Zoo Phonic letters and sounds!
The MWF class is making good choices. A short term goal is to be caught making a good choice, long term, the children have to get 5 more good choices to get a prize. They are all doing great!
As some of our art and crafts look simple, we are working on handwriting. On this project we wrote up and down to make the teeth, circle to make the nose and then wrote our letter. All of our projects are skill based. Some are even learning how to hold markers, crayons, scissors and glue sticks!
I love to see this! Even though these are tangagrams (shapes) and blocks, the children use them to make letters they are learning!
Next week: Community Workers!
