The students of Room 6 have kicked off the new year with some different book activities. They have been creating their own books and have practiced writing their letters and names. We are looking forward to all of the exciting things this year has in store!
Acorns have become an interesting study for our students. They have been busy collecting them from outside and incorporating them into different art projects!
The students in Room 6 were presented with a wide variety of materials such as poster board, cardboard, fabric, yarn, beads and other tools. They worked and grew an interest in creating their own masks. They were careful to discuss the size of their faces and the placement of the eyes and mouths on the masks. Once they were finished, they were very excited to wear and model their creations!
The students of room 6 invited our families into the classroom to help us decorate our Christmas tree and enjoy lunch together. The families enjoyed participating in the classrooms and got everyone excited for the holiday season!
We wrapped up our butterfly studies in the best way possible! After observing our caterpillars form and grow into butterflies, we covered various topics and studies that really help the students gain better understandings of the world around them. On a sunny afternoon, the children took their butterfly cages outside and released them back into the wild!
The children in Room 6 have explored and learned how to write their names in many different ways. They have been exploring the alphabet and practicing their letters using shaving cream, salt, tracing and drawing to work on spelling out different letters!
The children in Room 6 had a very excited first week in the classroom! We took a walk, played outside, painted, went to the studio, and explored our room! We are looking forward to the year that is to come.
Some of the children in Room 6 enjoyed walking over to the musical swings today! Everyone enjoyed visiting with our special visitors Mr. Jim and Tanner!
On our way back from checking out the new Musical Swings being built in the Fort we ran into some firemen who were doing training. They stopped to talk to us and gave us a couple safety tips on how to be safe at home.
The children in Room 6 enjoyed making their own class car with our volunteer Mr. Keith.
