In January, we used shapes to make our winter penguin. Our themes were weather and winter animals.
The girls had been learning about famous artists. They recreated Red Poppy by Georgia O'Keeffe in art class. We will display it on our February bulletin board.
We are reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. The book reinforces counting, days of the week, foods, and of course butterflies' life cycle. Our creative thinking question was "If you were a caterpillar, you would try...
If you were a butterfly you would fly..." This introduced rhyming to the girls. Reading research supports rhyming as a pre-requisite to reading.
The girls are enjoying music and choice time in our classroom. Along with Girl Power twice a week.
