Happy 2017! It is a new year and our preschoolers are excited to get back to the business of learning! This week we did a brief unit called 'Kid's Choice'. We put out our most popular toys and activities. It made for a nice transition back after break. Next week we will start a Mo Willems author study, kicking off with the book Knuffle Bunny. This cautionary tale reminds up to always double check if we have our most beloved stuffy with us before leaving somewhere, especially the laundromat! Check out the curriculum highlights below:
Dramatic Play: Laundromat
Sand Table: Clean mud
Math: Knuffle Bunny Math Game (simple addition using dice)
Literacy: Journal entry: do you have a favorite stuffed animal?
Building Rug: Challenge: Can you build a skyscraper?
