Take a look at this week's activities. We made monster feet on the first day as a good intro to monsters, we reviewed shapes and graphing by making shape monsters and analyzing our data, we made closet nightmares and discussed some of the things we are scared of and brainstormed ideas to help us be brave, and of course we continued our regular center routines focusing on sight words, learning letters and their sounds, reading color words, patterns, and this week we also started learning about the numbers 0-5 during math time.
One new thing we have started is a weekly poem to go in our poetry journals. We started poetry journals the very first week of school to help us learn how to spell all of our colors, but now the poems will relate to whatever letter we may be studying at the time. This week for M, we made a muffin to go in our journal along with poem. We circled all of the M's. Can you believe there were 8 M's in our whole poem! The kiddos were so surprised at this. This idea came from the famous Kim Jordano! You should check out her website. Kinder by Kim
Our classroom looked like Santas's workshop after using all that tissue paper!
