In small group we discussed what the word "Honesty" means. Miss Shelly helped the discussion with pictures of scenes, she would say something about the picture and the children would decide if what she said was "honest" or not honest. Afterward Miss Shelly would say a sentence that was not honest and the children would help change the sentence to make it honest.
In the water table there were people, animals, and other items that we bathed with washcloths. Learning how to properly scrub our bodies to make sure we're clean and healthy is very important!
In sensory, we had a big bucket of sand to search through and discover many different beach items. Who doesn't love the beach! Some of us discovered the sound of the ocean in the shells, or discovered animals that they haven't seen before.
In the writing center we were practicing our letter A's and other letters in the alphabet. Each week we will have papers that the children can practice the letter of the week and additional writing. Next week we will introduce holding pencils properly and showcase writing correctly with a pencil.
Remember we sent home cardboard people and can't wait to see how they are each decorated next week to show everyone "All About Me". Please make sure everything on your person is well secured to ensure they go home the way they came in.
We are ready for Week 3, National Talk Like a Pirate Day is Thursday. Make sure you come dressed and ready to "Argh" on our treasure hunt!
