Last week we read the story Not a Box! by Antoinette Portis. Then we used the boxes we collected to make what the children would collectively decided on making. We ended up with castles, cars, and a robot! It was fun watching their creativity and imagination at work. Have a great Spring Break!
We have started our unit on Construction in the yellow class. We were architects and drew plans to build a rocket. We are painting the huge boxes and putting it together after break. Our letter of the week was U. We laid on our back under the table. We looked up and colored the letter U.
Purple Class - Kindergarten Enrichment
We just finished up a unit on healthy bodies. We learned about keeping our teeth healthy by remembering the number 2. Brush 2x a day for 2 minutes and visit the dentist 2x a year. We talked about healthy foods and exercise. The unit ended with the children making their own first aid kits. Next week starts construction. On a side note, some of us built a really cool robot named Wobbly!
This week we have been learning about our 5 senses. We played Sound Bingo, did some taste testing, walked in our stocking feet on different textures in the block room, sniffed a variety of scents & painted blindfolded. Highlighting our week, we led a blindfolded partner around the classroom using verbal cues and holding hands to help our friend navigate the room. We experienced what it would be to be without our sense of sight. Also this week we traced our bodies and began painting them to look like us.
Coming up…..Construction. Tune in to see what structures we will build!
