After singing our welcome song and reading a book about how special we are we made a class apple tree. Each person got an apple to write their name on and something about why they are special. We had answers from, "I am special because I like to read books and play in the sand." to "I am special because I make my mom and dad happy and I make them laugh." They were super great answers! I'll leave the tree up for a few weeks and then send apples home. Click on the picture for a larger size so you can read the answers.
We learned our first letter today. The letter of the week is M. We read the story about M the Moose and listened to the song. Next, I passed out magnifying glasses so all the little detectives in our room could find the letter M. Here are a few finds:
We took our artwork back downstairs to use the magnifying glasses to check out our fingerprints and compare them to our neighbors fingerprints. Everyone has different fingerprints!
The Moffatt Girls. Today's sight word of the day is "see". Our topic of the day was Teamwork. We talked about what a team is and how a team helps each other.
art cards that we lay out and together we pick what we'd like to use during art time. Today we ended up with scissors, glue, foam paper, construction paper, Do-A-Dot markers, glitter and play-dough.
