We had a great week in the Panda Room learning all about Winter.
Books we read:
Umbrellabird's Umbrella, by Heather Feldman
Big Snow, by Jonathan Bean
The Reader, by Amy Hest
Had our Letter of the Week “U”
This week the children used a bit of technology to make new placemats. Each child got to write their name on the iPad and decorate using various tools provided in the app. We saved, printed and laminated and have beautiful work to show for it... and eat on top of :)
During centers we revisited Mat Man and they are getting VERY good!!!
During classroom art the pandas began to learn about Hanukkah and used our fine motor skills to cut and create beautiful Menorahs.
We also used more of our cutting and gluing skills by working very hard on our auction project!!! We can't wait for you to see it at the Winter Benefit!!
Theme this week:
