Dear Yellow Room Families,
We had another exciting week! Below is an update on what the Yellow Room children learned this week in school.
Themes this week:
- We continued our study about our home city, NEW YORK!
- To prepare for our big trip across the Brooklyn Bridge, the Yellow Room began an in-depth study on bridges.
- We began our study by learning about different kinds of bridges found all over the world. We learned four different types: Arch, Suspension, Beam and Cable-Stay. We then spent the week building bridges out of many different building materials in the classroom.
- For art, the kids collaborated in small groups and made bridges using different collage materials.
- Mother's Day is sneaking up on us and the children all began a special art project for the special women in our lives.
- On Monday, we celebrated Seis de Mayo with a classroom fiesta. For snack we enjoyed quesadillas and chips with salsa. In the afternoon, the yellow room children had fun shaking maracas as they danced around sombreros. We ended the day by taking turns swinging and trying to break open our Dragon piñata.
Books we read:
- The Night Before Mother's Day, by Natasha Wing
- The Mommy Book, by Todd Parr
- Bridges, by Susan Canizares
- Twenty-One Elephants, by April Jones Prince
Places we visited:
- In music, we practiced singing Let it Be and Put A Little Love in Your Heart.
- In library, Lindsay continued our Magic Tree House chapter book.
- On Wednesday, we enjoyed singing during our monthly school assembly.
Enjoy the photos and have a great weekend.
