Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Note from the Teacher

Hello everyone! It’s been a short but fun week. The students have enjoyed the “Bear Den” I set up in the dramatic play area. Everyday I allow a new student to have rest time in there, so they can pretend they are hibernating like a bear. We have also played all of our new games we received from our wish list . It’s been lots of fun. I have also, been working on student assessments and I am amazed at how much they have learned since the beginning of the year. I’m looking forward to sharing this with you during the parent teacher conference on February 8th. Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Learning Focus

We are learning about winter animals and discovering which migrate, hibernate or adapt during winter.

Hello everyone!  This week we have jumped right back into learning and fun.  We have been decorating for Christmas, making ornaments and learning about our 5 senses using gingerbread.  Our class made a bell ornament for the tree by the front office using marble paints.  They enjoyed this project.  We also did some directed reindeer art you can view outside the classroom on the wall.  I think they did an amazing job following directions on this activity.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
