Happy Thursday!!!!

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the park, our forecast is calling for snow this evening.

Today we continued our lessons in the Arctic Fox, the Oasis, and the letter “M”. We also finished up our lesson on Dr. King and listened to his speech during lunch time. We discussed how he has helped us to be in class together, making sure everyone is treated the same, and what a great person he was. 

We learned that the Arctic Fox and the Red Fox are the rarest in the world, that you can see lots of Oases in the desert next to a natural spring or a well, and they are easy to spot. 

We made our dream board displaying our art work of what we want to be when we grow up. We also practiced writing the letter “M” in the sand. We used our cut out letter, our sand tray, and our fingers to complete this work. 

Focus: Cognitive Development- critical thinking process, Literacy- demonstrating knowledge of the alphabet, Social Studies- demonstrates simple geographic knowledge, and Science- demonstrates knowledge of the characteristics of living things.

Happy Wednesday! It’s Hump Day!!

It’s a chilly 29 degrees outside today. Let’s hope for some sunshine so we can get out and about soon. We hope everyone tried the hot chocolate recipe yesterday!! I know I did and it was delicious. 

Today we continued to work with the letter “M”, dug deeper into the Oasis terrain, and learned more about the Arctic Fox and its habitat. 

Today the Tulips and Daisies talked about the the Arctic Fox and how it lives in the Northern Hemisphere, uses its white coat for camouflage during hunting, and like a cat, its tail helps it to balance. We also learned that an Oasis can be a palm grove in the desert or a habitat for animals and spontaneous plants. We reviewed the sound of the letter “M” and then did our work.

The Tulips and the Daisies sorted through the letters “M” & “W”. We used the letters “W” and “M” to show the differences and similarities between the two and then had each child sort and identify them and place them in the correct group.

Stay warm have a wonderful evening. 

Focus: Fine Motor Skills, participation, and following directions. 

We had a great day and will see you all tomorrow.

Happy Tuesday!!!

We hope everyone enjoyed the snow day yesterday. Can you believe there’s still so much snow on the ground?? Well we’re going to enjoy the snow and think of yummy hot chocolate recipes to make at home. 

Today we introduced the letter “M”, the Oasis Terrain, and the Arctic Fox. We talked about the sound, what it looks like, found things around the room with the letter “M” and practiced tracing it with our fingers.

Today we also discussed an Oasis: what it is and where it can be found. What is an Arctic Fox-and compared it to other foxes, listing their differences and similarities.
