In art this week we made a snow globe on Monday. We learned how to use lots of dots in a row to make a picture. In art this week we also painted with hot chocolate puffy paint. Our art smelled really good. In art we also did a fun ABC sort this week. We had to put words in order and color them! This was a challenging activity, but with the help of our ABC song, we were able to find the words that began with the letter we were on and put them in order.
In our game center we learned a new letter matching game with gingerbread. We had to work together to help the gingerbread find their correct home. We are really starting to recognize our letters!
In writing center this week we continued to work on our names and writing the letter J.
We made name snowmen this week! We had to count how many letters were in our name and then we had to write one letter per snowball. It was a lot of fun! We practiced our counting and letter formation skills. We also talked about adding detail to our artwork (arms, eyes, snow, ect)
We got to hang out with our first and second grade buddies this week! We colored a Santa and cut it out the make a puzzle! We are really starting to feel comfortable with our buddies. Walking around I am now hearing them having conversations with their buddies
