This week we are studying the letter “H.” The children named words that started with “H” such as Hank, house, horse, hot and hug. We made paper hats out of grocery bags and decorated them with markers and stickers. We hung them on our bulletin board located outside our classroom. When you drop your child off in the morning, take a moment to look at what a great job the children did. The hats are absolutely adorable! We also decorated Hamsa with markers and glitter. Ms. Janet and I love the way they turned out and were are sure you will agree.
On Wednesday our class went outside to see the petting zoo that came to our school. There were ducks, rabbits, a pig, goats, sheep, a pony and a cow. The children loved running from cage to cage laughing at the pig and ducks. They especially loved brushing the pony. I was very proud of how respectful our class was towards the animals. They were very gentle when they petted the animals and brushed the pony’s fur. It was a great time and one we won’t forget.
We looked at images of bees and talked about the different types of them. The largest breed of bees are called leaf cutters. Did you know that bees have long tongues and two stomachs? The class also learned that small bees don’t sting.
We read Curious George Rides A Bike and made hats out of newspapers just like Curious George did in the book. Needless to say our little monkeys looked so cute in their hats. They also painted beautiful pictures with water paint. Our class could give Monet a run for his money. They are such good little artists!
Ms. Janet did a science experiment with vinegar and baking soda. She took a jar and filled it vinegar. She then added baking soda and placed a rubber glove over it. Within seconds the glove filled up with gas and stood upright. Ms. Janet explained that when you add baking soda to vinegar it produces a gas. The class loved doing the experiment so much, that Ms. Janet had to perform it five times. They got such a kick seeing the glove rise up as if it was waving. The class screamed out “hello” and laughed every time the glove filled up with gas. The children were so cute that they had Ms. Janet and I laughing with them.
Our class wants to send Zach’s mom hugs and kisses for bringing in dress up costumes. The class has had so much fun dressing up as cowgirls, spider man and the world’s strongest man
Ms. Janet’s son will be coming into Jacksonville for a visit on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, so she will be home spending time with her son.
This weeks Ema is Madison and our Abba is Zachai.
