All About Me Week 1
I always forget what a roller coast ride it is the first few weeks of school and this year was no exception. It was packed with ups, downs and all around, but it was also a very successful and fruitful week with my new group of little ones.
Here is a peak at what we did.
At our morning meeting we had fun singing our ABC with this new movement song.
Work Time (Learning Centers)
This table of friends worked together to make a pan of cheesy cheese noodles. While practicing their fine motor skills.
Children learning how to use scissors with this color sorting name collage.
How tall are we? Children worked together to see how tall they were. "She is 8 blocks tall." "If you cut the block in half then it would be the same as the bean bags." Love their thought process.
We introduced dice with this roll and color activity.
Small Group Activities
After children measured their friends at work time they were able to practice their new skill with some How tall are we? measuring mats.
We practiced making facial features with draw and wipe mats.
Children played with lakeshore kids sorting and counting. Looking to see which group had more and less.
As they were working with them some patterns even emerged.
