We have been actively practicing our graduation songs all week! They are loving them and I cant wait for them to show them off at graduation!
This week we were discussing farms. We started the week with a discussion of baby animals and their mom animals. This was an activity that worked on their cutting skills, direction following, as well as conceptual knowledge and new vocabulary.
This then connected to our new pocket chart activity in which we matched the babies to their moms and even started trying to match the word labels to the animals. This is working on that initial sound as well as sounding out the sounds of individual letters.
We continued work on our number books. We put the correct number of stickers on our books, then color the correct amount of pictures, and then we look through magazines and cut out the numbers and glue them on.
We also did a farm/cow math book. There were a variety of barns with numbers on the doors, and the students then put the correct amount of cows by the barn. Students are doing great with their number concepts!
Students have been creating words with what they dig out of the sensory table this week. It is really bringing meaning to the sensory table play in a fun and new way.
It was beautiful weather so we got outside for some outdoor gym class as well as playground play. We had a lot of fun and we are loving getting outside! It is often a reward to get outside more than once if we can get our stuff done, follow directions, clean up, and get ready quick enough!
