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!
