Week of 11/13

Greetings from Parparim 2!

Our Letter of the week was: “I” so……

I is for Indian: The students were very good at following instructions.

“I” is for  igloo: So many sensory facets to enjoy! Smell, taste, touch, sight.  And what a sight they were!  A sticky mess 🙂

“I” is for ice cream: They are really doing great with their fine motor skills.

Book we read that start with the letter “I”:

I Wanna Iguana by Karen Haufman Orloff, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Joffe Numeroff, I love My White Shoes by Eric Litwin, I Know an Old Teacher by Anne Bowen, Ice Cream Bear by Jez Alborough, I‘m a little Teapot by Iza Trapani, I like Potatoes by Greg Scelsa, I’m Not Scared by Jonathan Allen, I Love You, Mommy! by Edie Evans, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut! by Dr. Suess

We are still finding wonderful Thanksgiving stories. This week we read:  This is the First Thanksgiving Day by Laura Krauss Melmed, A Turkey for Thanksgiving by Eve Bunting.

We are continuing to make Thanksgiving crafts.  It’s amazing how many ways you can make a turkey!  Don’t our little turkeys look cute?  (And the the tissue boxes turned out pretty good too!)

More turkeys!!

More turkeys??!!

In our afternoon library resource the children heard the story Run, Turkey, Run  by Diane Mayr.

In Art the boys and girls were introduced to chalk.  Chalk everywhere!

We had free-play in science and the kids were able to explore the science room at will.

In Gardening the boys and girls were able to harvest their crop of green beans.  Ms. Heather even cooked them up for lunch and some of the kids tried them.  Some thumbs up, some thumbs down.

Also, in gardening, the students investigated trees to see if we could find any bugs and do rub art on the trees with chalk.

Early/closed days:

PJ Library: We had a visit from our PJ Library.  The boys and girls heard two stories; Grandma Rose’s Magic by Linda Marshall and Rosie Saves the World by Debbie Herman

Shabbat Shalom, Hey!  Shabbat Shalom Hey! Shabbat Shalom, Shabbat, Shabbat Shalom (insert musical notes here)

The children got to Show & Share their items from home that started with the letter “I”:

“I” is for ice cream
