July 12th, Legs and Feet

We started circling for our story, Ten Paws. We learned the animals have paws like our feet. We then sang and danced to the Hooky Pookie. Then the parents each helped the kids trace their feet and the kids colored them in. Everyones feet were measured and we found Audrey has the biggest feet and Hannah has the smallest feet in the class. The kids took turns jumping and found Josh can jump the farthest with his feet together in one long jump. The other group tested themselves on what they could pick up with their toes.


June 30th, My Body

We started the day with circle time and our story. Then we all sang and danced to Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes.  We each had our own paper dolls cut out and colored them and their clothes. The kids had fun dressing them. Then we split into two groups. One group was on the tumbling mats, learning about our bodies. We learned that we can walk on our hands as well as our feet with a little help. And tucking our arms and legs in helps us roll. The other group learned their right and left along with arms and legs by playing Twister.

June 28th, Parent Meeting

We took the day to have a parent meeting and discuss how class was going. The kids all enjoyed watching Toy Story.

June 23rd, We Can Be Authors

Today the theme of our class was, “We can be Authors.”  We talked about rhymes, creativity, and that all stories have a beginning, a middle, and an end.  We read a poem about a dragon that pulls a wagon and Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss.  Then, all of the children chose a toy from a toy box and were encouraged to make up a creative story (possibly including a rhyme?) that had something to do with that toy.  The children were given three sheets of paper to remind them to include a beginning, middle, and end to their story.  Then they illustrated their story within the picture frame portion of the worksheets.

June 21, The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Our class started all sitting round Mrs. Tristan. Watched and listen as Mrs. Tristan told us the story. Then we made our own monsters like in the stories. Each kid had their own choice of shape and color for their monster. After we created our monsters we got together and made bridges like in the story. We retold the story with our bridges.

June 16th, Caps for Sale

We had a surprise for Heather, since it was her birthday. First we did story time and then the kids made top hats. Each kid decorate their own and had their parents help them assemble them. After we did our activity we all got together and sang Heather happy birthday. Then we chatted and enjoyed brownies and juice boxes.

7June, Goldilocks and the 3 Bears

Marie did an amazing  job substituting for Mrs. Tristan. Our story time included a story board for the kids to understand the story. The kids took turns telling the story in their own way. The kids made finger puppets of the 3 bears and Goldilocks. We wrapped it up with a wonderful snack time where we practiced counting and matching our name.
