I hope that everyone had a wonderful summer! It Is hard to believe that the new school year has begun. I am excited for all the full and learning that this year will bring.
Our Tools of the Mind theme for this month is “Family.” We will be transforming each of our learning centers into different parts of our house; bedroom, laundry room, and kitchen.
This month for literacy, we will be working on recognizing our names and we will also begin to work on recognizing the letters in our names! I also will be introducing our Tools of the Mind literacy games; letter hopscotch and the sound map.
This month for math, we will be working on reviewing numbers one through five. We will also work on counting and identifying numbers. I also will be introducing our Tools of the Mind math games; remember and replicate and a fun game called ” I have, who has…”.
Science and Social Studies
This month for science and social studies we will be learning all about the monarch butterfly. We have been raising caterpillars in our classroom. We have observed each one make it’s own chrysalis and then we wait for them to transform into beautiful monarch butterflies! Once they transform, we release them on our playground and wave goodbye as they start their journey to Mexico.
Each afternoon we will be going to each of our specials classes; Art, Music, Chinese, Karate, Spanish, and Dance.
