We are done with our first month of school. The kids are doing great and really starting to see their personalities show!! They are all great kids and you should be proud of all of them!!
On Tuesday, we talked about the letter Mm and did activities with mustaches. They really thought that was funny!!! We listened to the book Moosetache. During center time, we measured mustaches with unifix cubes, practiced our cutting with mustache faces and, did a spinner with mustache matching colors. For our art, we did a Mm is for mustache craft.
On Wednesday, we did activities around If You Give a Moose a Muffin. I read that book to them during circle time. During centers, we clipped clothespins on muffin number cards, found the letter Mm in our quick kits, traced/wrote the letter Mm and, matched moose/muffin ABC cards. We did a muffin craft for art. We also got to taste muffins. We played outside for a little bit since the weather was great this week.
On Thursday, we got messy with mud (pudding)!!!! During circle time, I read the books My Mm Book and Edward Gets Messy. During center time, we rolled dice and put that amount of brown unifix cubes on a pig, practiced drawing letters and shapes with our fingers in pudding, counted out items for our pretend mud pies and played with cookie cutters in Kinetic sand. For art, we painted with marshmallows. We played the I have….who has alphabet game. We also got to play outside since it was nice.
Please keep practicing tracing/writing you child’s name during the week. I am already seeing some improvement in some kids.

Until next week,
