This week we spent time thinking about Spring. We considered the signs of Spring we have begun to see: robins, rain, warmer days, snow melting, and of course, mud. We read books and sang some songs about the Spring weather. We’ve been reading some short, seasonal poems at circle and the children have been practicing writing the poem (with the words dotted out). It’s been a great way to incorporate poetry and work on our handwriting.
We’ve are still working on folk dances at music time. Our Danish Dance of Greeting has gotten quite good and we’ve added some new ones. We are also using it as an opportunity to learn a bit about the countries that the dances originate from.
Work time is still busy, busy! The older children enjoyed a lesson on time and decided to make “Time Books.” Geography maps, math and sensory materials have been chosen quite a bit lately.
It’s been great to see the excitement over their work and so much learning taking place.
