My Family: This past week we learned that we are all part of a family and that families are configured in different ways with many factors affecting them like marriage, divorce, adoption, remarriage, ethnic diversity, grandparents as primary care givers, single parents, foster care, etc. We read many books and the student’s shared a lot about their families. Through this they discovered that there are different kinds of families, but most importantly all types of families love and care for each other!

Work Time

Introduction Tray: This child is being introduced to the decimal system and becoming familiar with the symbols and quantities associated with units, tens, hundreds and thousands. He is visually seeing the difference between 1 unit, 1 ten, 1 hundred and 1 thousand.
Addition: These children are using the golden beads to discover that when you put two small numbers together you get a larger number and that this process is called addition.
Knobbed Cylinder: This child is able to visually discriminate the dimensions of each cylinder to find its correct placement in the block.
Dishwashing: This child is using many motor skills while also remembering the order and sequence of each action to successfully wash dishes, which naturally leads to the development of concentration.
Nesting Dolls: This child is using her fine-motor skills, coordination, concentration, and sense of order to visually discriminate between the smallest and largest nesting dolls in order to correctly put the dolls back together.
Microscope: This child is learning how to view different organisms under a microscope, including the mushrooms she brought to school.
