  • 5 Day 4’sWe had a busy week filled with our Dr. Seuss corner!!! Including art work, reading books, telling Dr. Seuss stories & most importantly, wearing the Cat in The Hat’s –HAT! We learned that when playing board games you need to wait for your turn, share and how to make a move on the board. We started our senses unit by making a touch chart, smell tests, taste tests, sight & sound tests and lots of exploring making scientific guesses & giggling. We sang shamrock songs and made shamrock shakers. Happy St. Patty’s Day.
  • Extended Day 4′sOur 100th Day celebration was lots of fun! The children loved counting to 10 and doing 100 push ups!! This week we focused on the globe for letter “G”. We discussed volcanoes, mountains, the weather and all four seasons! The projects that followed our lessons included cutting & painting , which the children enjoyed a lot! Their favorite project involved using their imagination and creating two of their own “weather days”. Ask them about their drawing!! Our G turned into a tank filled with “Goldfish” We can’t wait for you all to see. Next week we will be learning about St. Patrick’s Day.
