As we leave November and head into December, we are all thinking about what we are thankful for. So far, we have been thankful for a great start to our school year! We were impressed with the children’s love for our Veteran’s Day community service project and they thoroughly enjoyed working with the older grades to make the community service project a success. Please take a moment to pop by our Hall of Heroes display by the HEDP 2/3 room.
In the past two months, we have experimented with what that "Fall" season has to offer and are now heading into the colder months with many plans in motion. In November we used our senses to observe pumpkins. We made Jack-o’- lantern face creations, baked seeds from the pumpkin we observed, and created art pieces from dried corn. We wrote about what we are thankful for as well as doing a sink or float science experiment at the end of the month. We offer new activities each week to keep our class busy and learning.
In December we will be starting our letters of the week! Each week we will work on a new letter of the alphabet. Our weekly activities will be incorporated into the letter of the week. The children will work on writing them in uppercase and lower case, creating art activities that incorporate letters, baking activities, songs, and learning about how that letter sounds phonemically while learning different words. Some baking activity examples would be applesauce for the letter A and banana bread for the letter B. We are looking forward to incorporating science into our letter weeks with an experiment on blubber for the letter B.
