Circle time: This week, we spoke alot about Thanksgiving and how it started in our circle time. The children are really understanding the overall meaning of thanksgiving. The know some of the characters and places in the story of the beginning of Thanksgiving. next week we will get more into deatail as it is Thanksgiving week.
Art: Alot of the children have started to want to draw. When we separate into our learning groups, we are sure to have one group that can sit with paper and pencil for drawing at some point inside of three activities. The children enjoy this very much. We encourage this because the children have some time to develop their fine motorskill and hand-eye coordination and they can be social with the other children and not disturb the current activity. Also, the children are learning to express themselvs through art.
Language Development: This week the children took part in the vegetable card activity. In this activity we dicussed the vegetables on a set of flash cards, then matched the pictures to the name lables. The purpose of this activity was to develop their use of spoken language, help them develop an intrest in pictures and to increase their vocabulary amongst other things.
Math: The children are continuing to develop math skills in alot of different ways. One activity the children did this week was the constructive triangles activity. In this activity the children used small triangles to form 4,6, and 12 point stars. This activity helps the children developp reasoning and logic. Also the children have the opportunity to experiment with geometry.
Clothing: Please send your children to school prepared for winter weather. In addition to rain clothes, please send something heavier for the children to wear underneath. Also, since there are some puddles left on the ground, please send your child to school with waterproof shoes or rain boots and extra socks. Also, evey child should have a change of clothes. Accidents happen and we would like for the children to be prepared.
Outings: This week we took a trip to the library at taby centrum to see some performing arts. In this case it was theatre. We started our trip at about 9:30 in the morning with walking to the bus stop and taking the bus to taby centrum. The children walked very well and showed great awareness being out in the community. When we arrived at Taby centrum, we walked through the mall area to the library. After arivingat the library, the children took off their rain clothes and waited quietly outside the theatre. finally, we were able to go inside the theatre and be seated. The children sat down in front of the single actor in the performance and watched the show.
At some points in the show the children could almost communicate with the actor so they all felt involved. When the play was finished, the children got dressed and took the bus back to school for lunch.
