We spent sometime comparing reptiles with mammals. We were all able to write one mammal fact in a journal page. I'm keeping all the completed writing in the room and you will see the children's progress at our first conference.
Each group had a chance to work together to make a block zoo. We saw a lot off creativity and cooperation. Each child told the class which part of the zoo he or she built and gave a short explanation describing how they made it. They were able to answer any questions their classmates had.
Many thanks to everyone that sent in lunch bags and cotton balls. We made our crocodile and monkey puppets, they came out great. We will be using them to sing "Going to the Zoo Tomorrow." The info on the zoo trip and the Nutcracker ballet has gone home. We had to put them out together because we have paid for the ballet tickets in advance. Please email or send a note if you would like to chaperone.
Letters and numbers are looking better everyday. Any chance to practice at home helps tremendously!
We wrote and learned the sounds for c and o.
We wish you all a wonderful holiday weekend!
