This past week we spent exploring everything we could about APPLES!

Check out my video blog updating you on our classroom happenings for this past week. Click here!

Our friend is working on color box three. When working on this material the child is developing a visual sense of color. They are also gaining fine motor skills through the use of pincer grip.
The trinomial cube blocks are color coded and are different sizes to represent the algebraic Binomial and Trinomail formulas. This is an introduction for algebra and preparation for the proof of the formula ( a+b+c)3 at elementary level. It also challenges the child to find patterns and spatial relationships.
The movable alphabet helps with the analysis and exploration of the language which is known to him/ her and to reproduce words with graphic symbols. This works prepares the child for writing and reading.
Today our friend was using our chalkboard to practice writing out the cursive letters.
Here are the fantastic books we read!!!
