Last week was a very busy week for us and a week of a lot of "firsts" for our class. On Monday, we visited the Media Center with Mrs. Smith and learned how to find books on the shelves and handle them properly. After September 6th, we will begin checking out books each Monday when we visit the Media Center. On Wednesday, we went to the Computer Lab and met Mrs. Clem, the Computer Lab teacher. We will visit the Computer Lab each week to learn basic computer skills and to reinforce skills learned in the classroom.
In the classroom, we were introduced to "Smarty Arty", the Smartboard. We were able to do the calendar activities and learn an alphabet, days of the week, months of the year, and shapes song using the smartboard. All of the children became "Alphabet Hunters" as they searched for and circled given letters on the smartboard. We also celebrated the birthdays of two of our fellow classmates, Landon and Adyn. Happy Birthday boys!
This week, we will begin an "All About Me" theme. Mrs. Marengo and I would like for each child to bring one 4x6 family photo to share with the class and to place on our family bulletin board. It's always fun to learn about everyone's family through pictures and the children's stories! We will continue to work on our class routines and fine motor skills such as cutting with scissors and working with writing utensils. Each of the centers in the classroom are now open during center time, so please encourage your child to visit each throughout the week.
