he children are really enjoying science activities with Miss Sharon. She used lots of dry spaghetti to show us strength/ support and light and heavy!
Thank you again to Jacqueline’s mom Kelly for spending time with us last Friday: we loved the snowman story, craft and marshmallow treats!
The children did a great job with a storytelling/ sequencing activity. I gave the children
three story cards and each child was able to order the cards appropriately and tell his /her story! This activity encourages critical thinking, sequencing skills and promotes sharing / speaking at circle time! We’ll try four-card stories soon.

This week’s letter is O. We’ll make octopuses , owls and paint/ stamp with oranges!
We’ll sort and count with colorful O cereal and have Oreos as a special treat!!
We’ll read Groundhog Day (Betsy Lewis), make groundhog puppets and learn this poem

My Little Groundhog
Here’s a little groundhog, furry and brown
He is coming up to look around
If he sees his shadow
Then down he’ll go
Then six more weeks of winter
Oh no!!

The children are doing great work in their workbooks and ABC books with Miss Michele !
