This week at Sunnybrook, despite the first cold of the year sweeping the classroom, we motored on beginning to learn about air, land, and sea. We talked about the different creatures that live in the three, and where we find them. Ms. Eileen brought out the textured globe to have everyone feel it and see where the areas of land and sea are. We sang the continents song and then looked at the map mat.
Ms. Eileen also gave a lesson on how we get someone’s attention when we want to talk to them. Instead of calling their name over and over again, or interrupting when someone is talking, we can place our hand on their shoulder to let them know we want their attention and wait patiently until they are available to talk to us.
Though the week started off feeling like summer, by the end, we started to feel the beginning of fall. We took advantage of the warm weather as much as possible. Ms. Michelle took out the rakes and showed the students how to pick up the leaf piles with the rakes to transfer them into sleds.
Thank you everyone for another great week! And for all those who are still under the weather, get well soon!
