In December our Unit of Study was Where We Live. We learned about our city and how big it is, we also learned more about out neighborhood. We observed the many types of homes that people and animals live.
In the block center we built a city like NYC and we made zoos for the animals to live.
In the Math center we put together puzzles in number order, counted groups of objects and matched them to their numeral. We also used cubes as people and counted how many would fit into each of the homes.
We used play-dough and toothpicks to build 3d buildings…this was really challenging.
After reading the story of The 3 little pigs and the not so bad wolf, we re-built there houses to retell the story. Then we retold the story and tried to blow the houses down!
Our favorite activity was trying to build a tree using green cups. we measured them to see how tall we could build it before it falls. Dorwens on the last day built the tallest one at 59 1/2 inches!

We spent October exploring our environment uses our senses. We learned about apples, leaves and pumpkins and played games to identify smells and sounds. We learned about preparing a healthy plate of food using the food groups.

We have spent our past unit learning about ourselves, our friends, our school and our feelings. We have learned how to navigate through our class during center time and knowing the flow of our day. We are becoming more independent and most of us can make our own cots and serve our food at meals.

We used different color flower cut outs to practice putting two groups together.
In the block Center we created gardens, parks and roof top gardens.
Dramatic Play Center was turned into a flower shop. We made bouquets and sold them to our friends. We also had a small vegetable garden.
We planted grass seeds, lima beans and radish seeds.
The Sand table was filled with dirt and Lima beans that had the letter written on them. The children were encouraged to dig in the dirt to find the beans and match the letters to a separate mat.
