All About Me Week 3
Morning work time is a time that children can work independently as they come into the classroom. Allowing the teacher time to greet each child as they come into the classroom.
We wrapped up our digestive system last week and started our study about our heart and lungs with a group discussion about what they thought our heart and lungs are for. Then we did a little reading.

Work Time (Learning Centers)
Children used hand mirrors to view the details of their face and they drew themselves with a sharpie marker. After completing the drawing they used liquid water colors to finish their self-portrait.
In the science center children mastered their skills of the skeletal system with a child size floor puzzle.
Some of the children graduated from the doll heads to pretending to style one another's hair.
Working on cutting skills in the sensory table with paper stripes.
Small Group Activities
Children learn to talk about emotions with this fun dominoes game using children's faces with different emotions.
Flip and draw a emotion.
Play dough mats are my little ones top choice when they are out and these All About Me play dough mats are no exception.
Preschool Cooking Project
This cooking project will go down in the book again for next year. The children enjoyed it, the teachers enjoyed it for it's health value. It was a win, win on both sides.
