The children had a wonderful time this morning exploring several new invitations to learning. Everyone seemed to have a favorite. We counted, matched letters, and worked on pre-writing skills.
One friend worked on a beaded necklace for over 20 minutes. What a fine motor workout!
We painted with some nontraditional paintbrushes, feathers!
We reviewed the letter "T" again and worked on a pre-writing activity. We used a toothpick to poke holes in the letter "T". This activity encourages letter recognition, hand eye coordination, proper pencil grip, pressure control and concentration. I was very impressed at how well the children did and how much they enjoyed it.
Another goal I have for the children this year is that they become more independent as the year goes on with simple daily tasks such as pouring their own water from a pitcher at snack time, opening their own lunch boxes or zip lock bags and cleaning up their respective messes. It is amazing how far they have already come!
I am looking forward to seeing you all on Friday at our Thanksgiving Day Feast. It will be held in the Bluebonnet room at noon. Bring your camera because you won't want to miss the 8 cutest little Indians ever!
Here you will find little snippets of our days together. When my children were in preschool and would come home I would always ask, "So, what did you do today?". All they ever said was, "Played." That didn't tell me much. I hope this blog will be a place to share what we have done and help you ask more directed questions of your child. You will see first hand just what we do after you kiss your little one goodbye in the morning. It will also be a great place to visit and see just how much your child has grown and learned throughout the year.
