Our Terrific Tigers explored different rooms that we find in a house, as well as talking about the furniture and items you can find in each room. We talked about the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, living and dining room. Pictures and posters were shown to them to reinforce the concepts. Our students pretended to be chefs, and they “baked” cookies in our kitchen. They also pretended to be sleeping on a bed, sitting in a living room and eating at a dining room! They love to pretend!
We took a tour inside “Willie Worm´s” house to look for baby worm, who was lost. We saw all the different rooms found inside a house until they finally found baby worm! Books such as Breakfast Time, My House, I Am Not Going To Get Up Today, Pooh´s Tree House, Be my Friend, and Violet´s House were read during Story Time.
In Creativity Class they were thrilled to bake their own puffy paint! They had fun playing they were in the kitchen, mixing flour, water and baking powder and mixing different food colorings and placing their mixture in the microwave oven to create their own puffy paint! Other projects done this week included making the mexican flag, and working with the blue tempra to paint over cardboard.
During our Cooperative Play time, the kids liked inserting straws into containers, making towers and patterns with blocks, picking out iems and placing them in ice-cube containers, as well as working on puzzles. They are getting really good at working together as a group!
It is always so much fun watching our leader of the day walk into our clalssroom with his or her special mystery bag and show us what they have in it! They feel really special when it is their turn to show the whole classroom what they brought from home.
Next week we will be talking about school and different objects and activities done throughout the mornings. We can’t wait for Friday when a mime will be visiting ToddlerTree!
Mrs. Martha and I hope you have a very nice weekend!
