This week we focused on the letter Rr. We talked about how rainbows, robots and rectangle begin with the letter Rr. The kids are doing great and learning new things everyday. I can not wait to see how much they grow by the end of the year.
On Tuesday, we focused and did activities with the theme of rainbows. We read the books Rainbow Fish and Mixed: A Colorful Story. During centers, we did activities with rainbows. We did rainbow bears number clip cards, rainbow upper and lower case ABCs matching and strung the same color beads on a pipe cleaner in rainbow colors. For art, we did a Rr is for Rainbow fruit loop craft. We also got to watch an experiment using Skittles and warm water make a rainbow.
On Wednesday, we focused on robots and rectangles. We read the books Five Colorful Crayons and My Rr Book. During centers, we did activities with robots and rectangles. We measured robots with uni-fix cubes, did patterning with robots, and made robots out of playdoh with robot playdoh mats. For a craft, we made a robot out of different size rectangles. We also traced and colored a robot .
On Thursday, we went to the Pumpkin Patch. Even though it was a chilly day, we had a lot of fun!!! I enjoyed talking with all the families and getting to know them better.
Please keep working on things at home with your kids. I am already seeing improvement with name writing and cutting skills. Thanks so much for your help with this.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact me with any concerns you may have.
Until next week,
