Hello Families! We only have one more week left in the month of January. This month FLEW by!
This week we were busy and had fun learning about the letter Ww. Tuesday’s theme was white and talking about winter animals, Wednesday we were walking in a winter wonderland, and Thursday was our wacky hair/wacky clothes day. I would say Thursday was probably the students favorite!
Some of our centers for the week included: locating and coloring all the Ww’s in alphabet jumble, colored hot air balloons for a project to complete next week, worked on an alphabet dot-to-dot and number dot-to-dot, practiced using jumbo tweezers picking up 13 and 14 pompoms and snowballs (cotton balls) and placing into labeled cups, traced our alphabet upper and lowercase, practiced writing our first and last name, and completed a page that related to a story I read on Tuesday titled The Mitten. Again, some things go home with the students and some are done in class with dry erase markers or other manipulatives. If papers don’t come home one day, it doesn’t mean we didn’t do anything!
We had lots of books this week that went along with our daily themes: The Mitten, Polar Babies, Little Penguin and his new best friend, Chicken in Mittens, Dixie and the Best Day Ever, Pete the Cat Snow Daze, Snow Day!, Duck Duck Dinosaur Snowy Surprise, and Hooray for Hair!
Parent Teacher Conferences are set for Friday, January 22nd at the given times. I look forward to speaking with you all and if you have any questions, please bring them along or you can always email me at MrsAimeeABC@gmail.com
Next week we will be talking about the letter Ss. I am excited for Thursday being that my classroom theme is Seuss and that is what we are doing, all Seuss things!!!
Please make sure you are dressing your child for the cold weather that has definitely arrived. We make sure coats are zipped and hats or hoods are on before they walk out that door to your car.
Have a great weekend!
