Had our Letter of the Week “I”
It was a busy week in the Panda Room. We celebrated Diwali!!! We are going to learn more about Diwali in a few weeks when we learn about holidays around the world, however we took some time to talk about this joyous holiday. We listened to a brief story about Diwali and why we celebrate. It is always a good reminder to remember that good WILL triumph over evil and there is always light even in the most darkest places. We also made our own Rangoli Art :)
During centers we worked on different math skills. We learned to use a key to make our own graphs. The children used a visual key to create who lives in their homes. They are hanging on the bulletin board- check them out!!
During classroom art the pandas made bags for our leaf hunt.
We also worked on our cutting skills by cutting out homes and placing them in size order as well as cutting out animals and matching them to the homes they live in!
