We read the book Polk-A-Dot pants and created our own polka dot pants. We used clothes pins and pom pom's to create dots. They used fine motor skills to pinch the clothespins and paint with the pom poms.
We have also been reading the book Beatriz, Bananas and the Very Big Hat. We learned about different types of hats and that "hat" starts with the letter H. Hats can also help protect our heads. The children created a crown by weaving the band through the slits on the triangles. This required some hard work and patience, but they were able to do it!
We used story telling pieces to retell the the story of Beatriz and the Bananas. I asked questions such as what happened when Beatriz fell asleep? Did she trick the monkeys to get her hats back? They worked with their friends to retell the story.
We learned that shoes and socks come in pairs. We created a shoe and practiced lacing.
We worked on the letter Hh this week. We celebrated another birthday!
