During this week we have been talking about winter clothes. Vocabulary words learned during this topic: shoes, boots, coat, jacket, mittens, gloves, cap, hat, sweater, socks. The kids were very aware of these words since they are very familiar with them right now. We also reviewed colors when talking about their winter clothing. One fun activity for them was to name the items and dress up a big teddy bear with winter clothes. They loved to trying them on too!
Creativity Class was also exciting! They worked on several projects, such as making a winter tree, placing winter clothing on a human figure and creating and playing with artificial “snow”!
Story Time has become a nice part of their routine and it is wonderful to see how our Terrific Tigers remain seated during the entire story when it is being read to them! Stories this week included: Avalanche, Barney Gear Gets Dressed, Snow, What Will You Wear, Claude?, and The Snowy Day.
During Cooperative Play our kids were asked to identify winter clothing and it was interesting to see how they were able to identify the words, name the object they had, such as boots, rain boots, jackets, mittens, gloves, cap and hat! Everyone preferred to wear a cap! We also dressed up stuffed animals in winter clothing and matched mitten and sock pairs!
Next week will be very special as we will have our annual grandmothers day celebration on Wednesday! Your little ones will get to come to kinder with their grandmothers to work together on a special project with them and have some tea!
Topics next week will include talking about different kind of animals (winter animals and forest animals as well).
We hope you have a wonderful weekend!!
