Kate Case

This week our class was getting ready for our field trip to the Art Museum . We had fun learning about different artists,such as Vincent Van Gough, Andy Warhol, Monet, Picasso, and Jean Michel Basquiat. The children learned about their art work,the meaning behind them, how the artists lived and where you can find their paintings. Ms. Ame had fun doing different crafts with them and showing videos.

One of our newer friends is working on our What does not belong work. The purpose of this is to prepare a child for reading. The child must be able to focus and  hold interest. A child will also work on critical thinking, which helps reading comprehension.
The nine layouts purpose is to help the child become familiar with the quantities and hierarchies of the decimal system .
Our friend here is working on our syllable work. Syllable awareness is one component of phonological awareness. Students gain the ability to hear phonemes that comprise words and explore speech sounds as syllables.
Today our friend mastered tying her shoes!!! Tying shoes is placed in our practical life area. This teaches her life skills, focus and concentration, fine motor skills, and builds their confidence.

Take A Peek Into Next Week:

Next week is all about Spring. They will learn all about what happens in spring, the different life cycles that happen during this time, the weather, flowers, and much much more!
