The past week the children have been working hard to practice for the Christmas show multiple times a day. Our classroom elf has made his grand appearance and has been very mischievous.


Work Time

Nine Layout: This child is becoming familiar with the names and relative sizes of the categories: units, tens, hundreds and thousands. She is also discovering that if she has i.e. 6 units and adds 1 more unit she will have 7 units.
Metal Insets: This child is tracing the metal insets developing her eye hand coordination and fine motor movements. She is also learning how to control a pencil (pincer grip, pressure and steadiness).
Table Scrubbing: This child is using many motor skills while also remembering the order and sequence of each action to successfully table scrub, which naturally leads to the development of concentration.
Tracing / Labeling Turtle Puzzle: This child is tracing, coloring and labeling the turtle puzzle by doing this he is learning how to grip and hold a pencil correctly. It also helps refine his hand control to steady the pencil and he is learning the characteristics of a reptile.
100 Board: These children are memorizing where the tiles should go and be placed on the 100 chart, while also learning to identify names of the numbers 1 through 100 and how to write each number.
Tangram: This child is creating specific designs using different shape pieces.
