It has been a busy week. We have been finishing our Insect unit and started a few days of ice cream fun. The children have been working hard on our year end show. I can’t believe our year is coming to an end.
Literacy: We read the books “Butterfly Life Cycle” by Jeff Bauer, “Ladybugs” by Melvin and Gilda Berger and “Make Mine Ice Cream” by Melvin Berger
Math: We learned about symmetry and made butterflies with symmetrical wings. The children played a ladybug math game. They were given a number and then they put that many dots on a ladybug. This game worked on number recognition and 1 to 1 correspondence.
Fine motor: The children worked on gluing, twisting and picking up small objects while working on their various projects and art activities.
Sensory Table: The sensory table was filled with kinetic sand, castle making molds and other sand toys.
Science: We talked about the life cycle of a butterfly and the children made their own life cycle project.
Dramatic Play: We have dress up crowns, capes, fairy wings, hobby horses and magic wands. There are also knights, fairies, castles, dragons and horses for the children to use in pretend play.
Art: The children created ice cream cones.
Cooking: Today we made ice cream.
