It was wonderful to see so many of you at our open house! The paw prints were amazing and as the children's first show and tell they will get the chance to share their paw prints with the class!
The children have been working very hard on our "Rules of the Jungle" nice hands, nice feet and nice mouth and are making great progress! We are very proud of them all!
They have been working on learning the first letter of their names as well as recognizing their names. Every time the children come to the tables they have to look for their name tag and many of them find their seat without difficulty. They also had fun decorating their names and projects like this will have them learning without even realizing it! One of the fun things we have added to our morning group is the name cheer. Each morning children are called to hold up letters to a friends name. Once they are all up, we review the letters until we figure out whose name they are holding up. That child then joins them with a pom pom in hand and the class says a cheer! Don't worry...we are taking pictures!
The children have also been working very hard on their shape books. There are many steps to this process and we are moving right along. First the children draw and then paint the shape we are working on. When dry they cut it out and are working very hard on their scissor skills. We can't wait for you to see the finished product!!!
This week we will be celebrating Mother Mary's Birthday on the 8th with a special snack. Our class will not be attending this Mass but we will soon. The children are working very hard on sitting still and using their listening ears and when they have accomplished that, we will be attending Mass on the first Friday of every month.
We pray that you enjoy the last days of warm weather that the Lord has blessed us with this year.
