Sharing: The Winnie-the-Poohs will share this week. Remember we are sharing about our summer plans (travel, camp etc.)
This week, Teacher Appreciation Week, is much appreciated by teachers! I am so grateful for all that is done for Room K (for me and especially for the children). Thank you all in advance, for making this week so lovely.
We are at the sweet point of the year when the children are independent, confident and deep in their friendships. That being said, many are acting out due to the subconscious knowledge that things are about to change. The school year will end in a short 24 days and next year the children will be in different classes with new teachers and classmates. This causes an unsettled feeling for some children so we are understanding and sensitive to their feelings of insecurity.
We are learning all about sea life in anticipation of our upcoming field trip. We are learning about tide pool animals, sea mammals and fish through art, books, and YouTube movies. The multiple learning modalities allow all children to access the curriculum. It is a very exciting study unit for the children and they are very enthusiastic!
We will continue our sight word books and journal writing. We are enjoying reading games to reinforce sight word reading, letters and sounds. The children are expanding their writing and many enjoy the writing center during Free Choice. We are also working in our math journals and practicing problem solving strategies. Our morning work focuses on counting "teen" numbers too.
