Hello Olympic Families,
Happy Friday! We made it through the week 🙂
This week our theme was All About Me. We talked about how everyone is different and unique in their own way.
This week we got our hands dirty as we introduced the children to the cooking center. This is a new center we added to the classroom in which the children will be able to learn different skills such as measuring while making yummy snacks in which they will be able to enjoy during snack or at home. But that’s not the only cooking we did this week, Wednesday we had cooking class where we made applesauce and applesauce muffins.
At the art center the children were able to draw a self-portrait of themselves, we took the learning further at the science center by adding buttons, paper, and crayons, and mirrors, Allowing the children to observe their own characteristics, recreating them using buttons as well as paper and crayons to record their observations.
The children have been loving Hand-Writing Without Tears the new part of our curriculum which works on proper writing skills. This week we worked on using our helper hand and hold our writing utensils correctly while making horizontal and vertical lines using oven racks.
The weather is beginning to a little chilly please make sure to bring a light jacket for your child to wear.
Next Wednesday 9/18 is our field trip to Treworgy
Have a Wonderful Weekend!
