This week we had the opportunity to learn about shapes using different materials. Big Bears learned that a circle is round and it has no corners. A triangle has three straight sides an a square has four sides and corners. They realized that any of these shapes can be found around us such as circle (clock), triangle (pizzas) and squares on picture frames.
During creativity with Ms. Cristy we traced a clown using different shapes and colors.The final activity was to match foamy shapes with clown figure. We introduced lines such as zigzag, straight, curve and slant. During gym with Ms. Melissa Big Bears enjoyed walking with maracas doing different types of lines.
Last week we also practiced the rhyme: The tree. We also learned a new song “Columbus, Columbus” where each one took turns and in front of their peers they repeated it. You should have seen their faces as they were singing it. The rhyme goes like this:
He sailed across the see
And landed in America in 1492
La Niña, La Pinta y La Santa Maria!”
As you all know on Thursday October 29, we will celebrate Halloween with a party and parade. Start looking for costumes so your child can participate in our catwalk. Try to find simple costumes for their own comfort. We also suggest it should allow your child to move freely. If possiblem, use make up instead of mask so it won’t obstruct their sight.
Finally, please send different color and types of leaves. You might look in your own garden or at the park. We want them yo know the main colors of Fall/Autumn besides the rest of the seasons.
Have a great weekend!
Ms. Caya & Miss María Elena
