Today we used gingerbread cookie cutters to paint! We cut up scraps of wrapping paper and glued into fine motor journals. We also did some letter and sound matching.
They put Rudolph together and added their names. The older kids cut out the pieces. We matched letters, laced beads and played with pegs today. We also made gingerbread men with scented play dough.
They used different sizes of paper to create a tree. We went longest to shortest. Then we added jewels to make our trees sparkle!
We sorted numbers 5/6 using stickers and cut up number pieces.
One of our friends brought a Dreidel game to show his friends how to play. A dreidel is a four sided top used in a game played during the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah. Each side has a Hebrew letter; nun, gimel, hey, and shin. They took turns spinning the dreidel and followed the instructions on the top once stopped spinning. They used chocolates to play, if you run out of pieces, you're out of the game. Last player standing wins! They had fun spinning the dreidels and of course enjoyed some chocolate. Thank you for sharing your holiday traditions with our class.
Their gingerbread men turned out so cute! They did an amazing job putting these together.
They used dot stickers to decorate the Christmas trees!
We finished up our winter trees! They turned out so pretty.
I drew Christmas trees on butcher paper and they used dot markers to add balls and matched with the color of tree. We also used dot markers to search for letters. I introduced ABB patterns, we used scrap paper to complete in our fine motor journals.
We painted gingerbread men today with cinnamon and allspice scented paint. We will decorate tomorrow!
They used their little hands today to do so much! They made a number six collage using scraps of paper. They also glued tissue paper in a triangle to create a tree! We will finish up the tree's tomorrow!
As a group they worked together to make patterns. I drew candy cane's on butcher paper and used various lids to make patterns.

Rudolph! The 3 and 4 year olds in my class did a great job on this directed drawing. Love all these reindeer!
A plumber works on pipes and tubes such as a drinking water system. He helps fix or maintain the flow of water. This is important because people need clean water for drinking, cooking and bathing. We read Curious George book Plumbers Helper. We discussed what we saw in the Inspiration photo so they could create their own Pipe Sculpture. During this Invitation to Create they built a pipe sculpture using straws. They engaged in problem solving to connect and build with the "pipes." Through this process, children can better understand that there are multiple ways to solve a problem rather than having one correct solution.
We played Piping letters, we had two tubes one with letter J and one with U. They took turns rolling letter cube, and identified the object on the card and then decided if it started with J or U then put the pompom down the matching tube. At the end we counted the pompoms to see which letter had the most pompoms.
We used scrap pieces of paper to make a number five collage.
