Topic: This week we learned about apples. The children enjoyed tasting different types of apples: granny smith, red delicious, gala and honey crisp. They also discovered what the inside of an apple looks like and how apples grow.  Some of the students even had the chance to do apple stamping and make homemade applesauce.

Work Time

Snap Dressing Frame: This child is learning to manipulate snaps so that she can dress herself. She is also developing motor skills and learning to follow logical steps.
Introduction Tray: These children are being introduced to the decimal system and becoming familiar with the symbols and quantities associated with units, tens, hundreds and thousands. They are visually seeing the difference between 1 unit, 1 ten, 1 hundred and 1 thousand.
Teen Board: This child is showing that he knows the symbols 11 – 19 and can successfully match the corresponding quantities, for example to make the number 14 he places one ten and four units.
Crumbing: This child is helping clean up sand after he was done using our kinetic sand work.
This child is learning how to prepare snack for his friends with Ms. Faith.
Object to Picture: This child is matching objects to pictures, by doing this she is making the connection that what she holds in her hand is the same as what she sees on the picture. In another sense that the picture of an apple is an apple, and the apple she is holding is an apple. This is a pre-reading material which aids in abstract thinking. This is essential preparation for reading.
These children are tracing and identifying the letter ‘e’ and its sound by using the sandpaper letter ‘e’.
Color Box 4: This child is selecting the lightest of the colored tablets and placing them in order lightest to darkest until all of the tiles have been put in order.
