Oh what a fun week we had this week! Our weekly them was the 5 senses!!They had a blast doing different activities such as taste testing different spicy, sweet, bitter, sour, salty, and sweet foods. We also used all of our five senses when we made popcorn!! Some of our other activities that we had fun with was using our sense smell by guessing what food was under a cup,using our sense of touch to match different types of fabrics, and a fun take away game for our sense of sight. Ms. Amanda created fun crafts that went along with each of the senses.

We had fun guessing what each smell was under each cup! 
While blindfolded, I took one item away from the group and they had to guess which one I took away! 
Each box was filled with different objects. They had to use their sense of touch to figure out what was inside! 
Our friends created 5 senses puppets. 
For sense of sight they made binoculars!  


We are still in need of a few items for our Valentines day party. So please hop on our sign up!

Happy Friday everyone!!

I can’t believe that January is almost over. Time is just flying by!! This week all of our lessons were about celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We read some incredible books that really explained who he was on their level. They learned about segregation, they listened to his I Have A Dream speech, learned who Rosa Parks was, and learned about freedom marches and sit-ins. Ms.Amanda had some awesome crafts that went along with each lesson of the day! It was a fantastic week!!!

Our brand new friend is working on the knobbed cylinders. This material is designed to assist children in making distinctions in their immediate environment. This material primarily engages the senses of touch and sight. 
When working on the Nine Tray the child will have a better understanding of the decimal system. They will also become familiar with the names and relative sizes of the categories. 
Ms. Amanda is working with one of our friends on one of our continent maps. I love these maps because it teaches the child the different countries in each continent. It also is a great work for them to gain fine motor skills, focus, and concentration.  
This cutie is working on the binomial cube. The purpose of the material is less focused on the complex mathematics behind the material, and rather is to provide a challenge for a child’s ability to find patterns and relationships between the blocks. 


Please check out the sign up I sent out yesterday about the valentines day party!!

We love to go outside, so please remember to have your kiddo always come prepared for outside!!

This week was all about Ice and snow! (Lol,go figure). We read some fantastic books and watched some interesting videos about how icicles are formed, how many points a snowflake has, what a blizzard is, the different shapes a snowflake can form, fun crafts and science experiments that were all about snow and ice!!! Let’s hope we get some snow soon so our kiddos can play in it!!!

Yesterday we had parents come in for ” take your parent to work day.” If you haven’t signed up for this you need to!! Spend 30 minutes with your child as they are working in the classroom. It’s so amazing to see all that they can do!!
Our brand new friend is working on our sandpaper numbers. The purpose of the sandpaper numbers is to teach the children the symbols that represent each number, allowing them to visually identify any number from 0 to 9.
One of our Kindergarten students is working on number formation. The purpose of this work is to learn the hierarchy of the numbers in the decimal system. To associate quantity and symbol. And to learn to put numbers of larger quantity into sequence.
This little cutie here is working on our Four Season cards. When working on this work the child is learning about each season, and also how to place the cards into different categories.
When working on the teen board the child is going to learn to connect the name and symbol of that teen number.


No school January 17 and 20th!!

Today’s the big day!!! Your kiddos have been working so hard on the Christmas show!!! We are all so excited! ! This week our theme was Christmas around the world!! We learned all of the different traditions and how people celebrate in England, Russia, Germany, China, and in South America. It was so cool learning all about the different ways they celebrate Christmas in other countries!! Ms. Amanda had such great crafts that went along with the different countries. It was so much fun !!

This work helps the child memorize the essential combinations in addition. The various charts give the possibility of repetition, which helps to fix these in the memory of the child. 
When working on different word lists it helps the child associate words with the same anomalies with each other, thereby making reading phonograms easier.  
The sandpaper letters teach the child the sounds of the alphabet. When working on this the child is encouraged to trace the symbol over and over again until the shape of the letter becomes a part of the childs muscle memory. 


Tonight is the Christmas show!! Please get to the high school at 530 sharp!!!

Next week is christmas fun week!!

Monday- christmas socks day

Tuesday – dress as your favorite Christmas character

Wednesday – wear red and green

Thursday – christmas sweater or shirt day

Friday – pj and show and tell day!!

Happy Friday everyone!!!

We had such a fantastic week learning all about being thankful!! Together we read some amazing books that taught them what it really means to be thankful. We also had a great discussion  on wants vs’s needs!! Your kiddos did such a great job on this, so we decided to make a chart out of it!! Together we also created our own class book about everything we are thankful for. It’s in our library, so come check it out!!! Ms. Amanda also had our friends create different crafts that gave them a better understanding of what it means to be thankful:)

Take a look at our wants vs needs chart up above and down below our class is working hard drawing and writing what they are thankful for.

The movable alphabet is such an awesome tool that teaches reading, spelling, and writing. It’s one of my favorite works!
The purpose of the sandpaper letters is to teach the child the sounds of the alphabet by means of muscular and visual memory. The child is encouraged to trace the symbol over and over again until the shape of the letter becomes part of the childs muscle memory.
One of our Kindergarten students is working on our North America puzzle. He is taking his time coloring and labeling the different countries .
