Orange Room September 29, 2022
- This Week was so incredible! It was full of special activities and awesome experiences for not only the kids, but the teachers as well! The firefighters came with their huge firetruck and gave the students a tour of all their cool gadgets and tools! The kids LOVED this! It was such an amazing experience for them. They had such a blast learning about fire safety from real firemen! This week was about our relatives! We talked about our grandparents, our aunts and uncles, and our cousins!
- STEAM - Our STEAM this week was so cool! I provided the students with ears of corn for them to shuck and pea pods! I let them shuck the corn and they thought it was so much fun! I also told them to open up the pea pod and take out the peas and put them in a bowl! We also got to try some of the peas. I got sugar snap peas and they actually really enjoyed them! We got to take a look at the vegetables under a magnifying glass! I provided all of this for them because these are some of the ingredients for vegetable soup! We got to try some soup for snack time and they loved it! These kids really love their vegetables! (However, we did just buy some canned soup for sanitary reasons!) :)
- Math - We are still discussing attributes in class! This week, we talked about colors and shapes. Specifically, we focused on the colors of our clothes and our shoes, and the colors and shapes of all the vegetables we gathered! They are getting really good at this! They love talking about colors, especially the colors of their clothes! We also took a look at our vegetable soup and discovered all the different colors and shapes of the ingredients as well!
- Literacy - Our two letters of the week were A and G! Every morning we try to find our special letters in our morning message. They did such an amazing job! Since we mainly focused on grandmothers and grandfathers, I provided them with a variety of different letter squares and the word “grandma” and “grandpa” and let them find the A’s and the G’s! They loved this activity so much, they wanted to do it again and again!
