This week we finished up our discussion of buildings. We recalled the visitors we had last week and talked about what the students would like to share with their families about buildings! Ask your child what they want to share with you. When we return from break, we will be starting our simple machines study.
During our small groups this week, the students practiced how to draw Mat Man’s head. Mat Man is a curriculum that focuses on the correct way to draw a body (eyes, ears, mouth, body, arms, hands, etc.). The students were given a model of how to draw all the parts of his head and then had an opportunity to do so themselves.
During our Second Step lessons, we reviewed the Touching Rule and the safety steps that we have to follow if someone ever breaks the touching rule.
Each year the psychology department collects donated books for the Early Childhood department in order for each child to receive a book. There will be one book in your child’s backpack that you can add to your book collection at home! If there is a library book in your child’s backpack, please double check to ensure that you are not keeping a Kloefkorn library book. Let me know if you have any questions.
