We had a great first week back and are settling into the new year nicely. We welcomed new students and are happy to have them join our EY2 community. Please welcome Eden, Mohana, and Trin!
Last week we focused on our year long unit, “Relationships” as we welcomed our new classmates and helped them to learn our routines. This week we will continue our focus on “Relationships” and talk about how we can fill each other’s metaphorical buckets. Ms. Alex will come in to read to our class and talk about the relationships we are building with our friends and how we can contribute to our EY2 caring and inclusive community.
In Literacy last week the students initiated a book making center. We will continue this center and see how it develops throughout the unit. The children are reading their stories to their teachers and friends and it has been wonderful to see their creativity and understanding of how a book should look and how it is read.
In math this week we will start surveying each other’s favorite things and make a pictograph to represent our findings. We will continue the line of inquiry, “building positive relationships” by getting to know each other better and respecting each other’s opinions.
At outdoor play we have started making water ways to get the water from the sink into the sand pit. We are working cooperatively and helping each other figure out how we can make the most efficient system. In another outdoor center the students are building cars that can do amazing things. Each day they add to their ideas to make their cars more functional and exciting!
