Weekly Update 4/26-4/30

This week we started our Simple Machine study. We began talking about the different kinds of simple machines and how they help us work. Ask your child if you have any simple machines at your house!

During small groups we worked on identifying numbers and using one-to-one correspondence while counting pom-poms, predicted how things moved in water, and got to go “fishing” for numbers.

Our social emotional curriculum focused on reviewing our safety rules and our touching rule. On Friday, we watched Julie Stays Safe — a video about how Julie navigates someone breaking the touching rule.

This week finished up our Reduce, Reuse, Recycle study! We reviewed what we have learned throughout the study and talked about our favorite parts. Next week we will start our Simple Machine study.

Our small groups this week included identifying and matching 3-D shapes, writing letters using shaving cream, and predicting and counting.

During our 2nd step lesson we reviewed safety lessons. We talked about gun, fire, water, bike, sharp tools, and dog safety. Ask your child if they can identify any of our safety rules!

Weekly Update 3/29-4/1

This week we talked about how we can recycle materials to make new things. We recycled paper towel tubes to make binoculars and old grocery sacks to make kites!

During small group this week we played a memory game, recycled paper to make books, and sorted through various recycled materials to find the recycling symbol. Do you recycle at your house? Talk to your child about things that you can and cannot recycle. Let them help you sort your recycling into different bins.

Our 2nd step lessons went over how to stay safe at school. We practiced our shelter drill and our evacuation drill and talked about the other drills (lockdown, hold, secure) and what they mean.
