Nocturnal Animals Week 2
We have been having a fantastic time with nocturnal animals these last few weeks. It has been a perfect addition to the seasonal hubbub.
We had a group discussion about how bats see at night. I love see the thought process before and after.
When it comes to introducing our little ones to letters, we feel that it is important to do so in a fun and meaningful way. That is why we choose letters that naturally blend in with what children are interested in.
This week we introduce the letter D for day, since it worked right into our Nocturnal animals and Diurnal animals.
We enjoyed this cut nocturnal animal puppet show.
We did a pocket chart story about Five Little Owls.
Our group writing activity is coming along nicely.
Work Time (Learning Centers)
We continued our research on bats in our science center with the differences between bats and owls.
The clay center is creating some amazing owls. They are getting really good at working with clay and all the tools to go with it.
They have really been enjoy the new funnel set up in the sensory table.
Small Group Activities
Our little ones have been working on sorting nocturnal and diurnal animals.
