Hello Sunnybrook families and friends,
I hope our new and returning families enjoy this blog. It will be updated weekly and will give you a peek into the happenings of the classroom.
We had a great first week of school. The returning children were excited to get to work and our new students have done a great job of exploring the classroom, meeting new friends and beginning to work with the materials.
We started the week by reading, “The Kissing Hand,” which is a great story for the first day of school, and introduced our calender. We practice the months, days of the week and record the weather during morning circle. During music we did rhythm games, played our rhythm sticks, maracas and triangles along to “Play your Instruments” by Ella Jenkins, enjoyed “The Bear Hunt” CD/story and the movement activity to “We all Go Traveling By”.
On Thursday we read “Mouse Paint” and did a color mixing activity at circle. Our Friday students enjoyed mixing paint and painting their own white mouses. Our Friday students also worked on leaf collection and identification for the Leaf Books they will be working on over the next few weeks. We also collected extra leaves and pressed them to use for a project with the whole class in the coming weeks.
All the children enjoyed the new rakes outside and building with the wood pieces donated by Garland Mill (thank you)! All in all, it was a great first week back!
