It’s hard to believe that September is coming to an end. Our Teddy Bear Picnic was a success and the children have enjoyed reading stories and learning songs about Bears. Our class favorite has been We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.
Brown day was a fun event for the class. We enjoyed seeing everyone in brown or hearing about a favorite brown toy. We made a large classroom poster with different things that are brown.
This week we also started to focus more on our first unit of inquiry, Who We Are- I Can Do It, Yes I Can. We are practicing taking care of our belongs by unpacking and packing bags as well as cleaning up after ourselves.
We have also started to learn about our bodies and its different parts by building a person called Mat Man. We have also learned a few songs about our bodies, including The Mat Man Song, Head Shoulders, Knees, and Toes, This Is Me, and One Little Finger.
On Tuesday, we visited the school doctor to take our height and weight.
Next week we will continue to focus on our unit and making healthy choices by looking at healthy foods.
We will also learn about our Artist of the Month for the month of September. The first artist we will learn about is Yayoi Kusama from Japan that does exhibitions around the world. One activity she is known for is setting up a room to look like a house and having visitors stick circle stickers around to show that art can be anything.
Remember to dress your child in their RED shirts until October 5th.
Please continue to send in baby photos. I have 4 baby photos so far. Please send in or email one baby photo of your child (between 3×5-5×7 size) for a class activity by October 5th.
We will continue our healthy living unit next week and Wednesday, Oct. 11th, we ask each student to bring in one fruit or vegetable cut into small pieces to share with the class. We will try them all and graph our favorites.
