A Peek Into the Cherry Blossom Classroom!
This week we learned all about the 5 Senses! We know that our 5 Senses are seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and feeling. We also know that we use these 5 Senses to learn about the world around us. We spent some time learning about how different types of animals use their senses as well. Did you know that a snake uses its tongue to smell or that a katydid has “ears” on its front legs?
It was also All About Me week! The children shared their All About Me papers with their friends, and we talked about our favorite colors, favorite foods, and our favorite animals. We also talked a lot about our families!
This child is working with the Blue and Red Number Rods. This is one of the first works within the Math area of the classroom. The child uses knowledge about length previously gained by the Red Rods and then takes their learning one step further by using one to one correspondence to count the sections of the Number Rods.
This child is practicing his handwriting skills with the chalk and chalkboard. Why do we teach cursive first? Cursive writing involves a flowing, uninterrupted movement which reinforces the left to right directionality of our written language.
MR. JOHN IS AWESOME!
Coming Up Next Week!
We will be learning all about Apples! As well as an introduction to primary colors and geography. Remember – NO SCHOOL on Monday for Labor Day!
