We had a great week in the Panda Room learning all about Cultures Around the World, specifically Guyana.
Books we read:
Jaguar's Jungleberry Jamboree, by Helen H. Moore
A Guyanese Girl's Story: Kite Flying in the Village, by Myrtle Watson
Sloth Slept On, by Frann-Preston Gannon
Had our Letter of the Week “J”
This week we continued to explore cultures around the world with a focus on Guyana.
We learned all about the Rainforest in Guyana and read Rainforest: Smart Kids. After reading and learning all about different animals the children engaged in a math center adding animals to the Rainforest.
Also in Centers the children cooked cheese rolls
Another fun center involved kite flying. We learned that on Easter the children in Guyana fly very large kites so the children made their own with their names on the bows
We also practiced our patterns and they are getting good!!!
