This week we read The Feelings Book by Todd Parr. As a class we talked about the many different emotions that we can feel.  We also learned new feelings such as lonely and curious.  In the Art Center we used different mediums such as paint and markers to draw ourselves.  In the Writing Center we worked on learning the letters in our name and how to form them.  We also made our own invitations for Thanksgiving! 

This week we will be talking about our classroom community and how each student plays an important role in the classroom.  We will revisit our classroom jobs and how we are responsible for helping each other.  We will also be continuing to talk about our families.

Last week we read the book Little Elliot, Big City by Mike Curato. The children were able to share how we are different from one another and how we can be a good friend to someone else who is different. We were able to create ourselves using different materials in order to represent how we see ourselves.

In the science center we use mirrors to examine our facial features. We discussed how some we are the same and how we are different.

Next week we will be exploring our feelings and what we can do when we feel a certain way. The children will be acting out several feelings and identify why we feel a certain way.

This past week we read the book Press Here by Herve Tullet. The children had an interactive experience with the book by using their sense of touch to make the book change as we read along.

In the Science center, we carved our pumpkin and got to feel the different parts such as the pulp, seeds and stem. We also got to guess what was in a mystery box by using only our sense of touch.

In Art, we created texture collages and discussed the way the different materials felt.

Next week we will be starting our new theme on All About Us by focusing on the concept of me.

This week we focused on our sense of smell.  We used our noses in the science center to determine the differences between different ‘smelly bags’.  Many of us knew the smell of chocolate and coffee and did not like the smell of vinegar!  Many of the children also liked the smell of coconut! We also followed a recipe to make apple sauce. We enjoyed making it and tasting it as a class. We also used our sense of smell with apple pie play dough. Try making it at home with your child and talk about following a recipe!


Next week we will be trying activities using our sense of touch. We will explore different textures and be using new vocabulary to describe textures such as soft, hard, wet, slimy, smooth and rough.
