Speech & Language: This week we will practice the sound of initial /G/. We will make ghosts for our craft and our snack of grapes will be provided by Rosie.
Sharing: This week the Winnie-The-Poohs will share.
During math time we will focus on the concept of 7 and will practice printing the number correctly as well as coloring objects, again reinforcing fine motor skills.
We are using a variety of strategies to reinforce the concept of friendship, empathy and cooperation (Anti-Bullying). Some of these are Second Step, Council, reading stories, Cosmic Kids Yoga, and our Conscious Discipline program. We are emphasizing following the 3 Bs and to "be helpful, not hurtful." I have many books about feelings and friendship. Additionally, the public library has many books about this topic. If you and your child have a favorite book about friendship, please feel free to be a guest reader, or send the book in so we can read it.
Thank you to all of our wonderful parent volunteers. I am amazed and so grateful for your involvement in our class. The children love having you in Room K and so do Ms. Sammantha and I!
