Before I go into todays activities I would like to show you a picture of one of the things that makes me smile. I love walking into a room to find children learning and helping each other.
Some things out on our table this week. We have four flannel pieces that depict air, water, land and a railroad track. In the purple box are several pieces of transportation. The kids can sort them out , play with them and use them as extensions of the stories we are hearing this week.
This is a parking lot game. If your child is struggling with number recognition ( or letters, colors, shapes etc... ) you can use this game. They all loved it. It is also a great fun way to assess and I can tell you... some of our friends need some help ! :) Draw a road down the middle and spaces on each side. Let your child pick out a cook match box car . Tell them to drive down the road and park in space number 9. ( Or 11, or 4... you get the idea ! ) Boys especially love this game.
The last thing we did before nap time was graph how we all got to school. We found out during this time that Emeri got a new black SUV this weekend . ( She will also have a baby sister some time this week ! )
Don't forget our BYOB Tuesday evening at the park. BRING YOUR OWN BIKE !
