A SPECIAL PARENT NOTE:
Miss Tami received ‘the potty duck’ from an acquaintance of hers. He created it and wanted us to test it out! The duck gets full of water and goes pee-pee in the potty. Afterwards, we can push the blue button and it flushes the potty (the water comes out of the bottom). It is geared towards children who are starting the potty training process, but can be used with any child. It has a suction cup on the back and is really meant for the bathtub.
So, after careful consideration and a stellar group meeting, we are going to have potty duck go home with one child every weekend. On Monday, the child who had potty duck will share with the class what they did over the weekend! We will randomly select children and start up the potty duck exploration next weekend! If you have any questions, please ask! Our friends are excited to have a traveling class pet .
Jackson and Addi ended their week by finishing off the last sign in entry. After writing their names, we talked about the first thing they do when they wake up in the morning! Addi goes straight to breakfast while Jackson lays in bed for a little bit before getting up. Once we were done having discussions, we wrote about it!
In large group, we read a book that Jackson brought in from home titled, ‘What Do You Do With A Tail Like This?’. We used our prediction skills as we predicted what animal part belonged to what animal. After learning what part belonged to what animal, we learned what they use that specific part for. For example, an elephant uses it’s nose to bathe!
Our kid spelling was in high gear as all of our older kids described and wrote about their journal. We’re starting to hear more and more vowel sounds while strengthening the use of our consonants.
Various building materials were pulled out this morning. Max and a few friends used magnatiles to create with while Jackson used the trio blocks to build his fortress!
We decluttered our Valentine’s Day décor so we looked ahead on the calendar and found St. Patrick’s Day! Black, white, and green construction paper strips were put on the table. Friends used markers and dot paints to color the strips. After the strips were stamped with our imagination and creativity, we stapled them together to make a chain (with the help of Max)!
Tada! The finished product.
With the ups and downs of this winter season, we are so thankful for how much outside time we got this week!
