Yeah, we actually had a full five days of school!  This week we spent a lot of time on classroom management.  Although it is something we continue to work on during the school year, the hardest time is typically the first 3 or 4 weeks. What this means is: sitting in a chair at snack/lunch time, walking in the classroom, using words with friends when frustrated, not grabbing toys from friends, and keeping our hands to ourselves. Our Sign Language words this week are: friend, all done, and please.  Last week we learned: sit down and thank you.  

Now that the children are in the 4’s class we will be working more on being independent. Some tasks we will be doing are: getting a cup to get water, putting on socks and shoes, serving themselves at snack time, getting their own lunch at lunch time, and taking care of their own toileting needs (pulling up/down pants and underwear) and getting plates and utensils when needed.  I’m asking for everyone’s help. We have 16 children In the class and that means 16 sippy cups, water bottles, or thermoses. The children have access to water all day, and we are encouraging them to be independent and use cups, so please no sippy cups.  This will help with our classroom management, and reassurance that your child will not be drinking after someone else.

On Monday, we read the book: We Share Everything by Robert Munsch.  The children loved this story. It’s about children in the classroom that share everything including their clothes.  During circle time we discussed different things in our classroom we share, and the things we DON’t share. Some of the things we share are: toys, books, teachers, and things we don’t share were: food, drinking cups, and band aids.  

Fine motor Wednesday, we started a classroom project.  The children strung colorful beads through a pipe cleaner.  I hung tule from the ceiling and the children were able to push the pipe cleaner creations through it.  We now have s classroom mobile. This project will be on going so stay tuned!

Some Books We Read This Week Are:

What Teachers Can’t Do  By: Mercer Mayer

Where The Wild Things Are By: Maurice Sendak

If You Bring A Mice To School By: Laura Numeroff

Pete The Cat And The New Guy By:  James Dean

Splat The Cat Back To School By: Rob Scotton

Important Reminders:

Please make sure your child’s things are labeled.  We have a few lunch bags and backpacks that are identical.
