Beginning in January we are working on public speaking. Several students presented our first week back. If need be, we will continue on Zoom. We are sharing about favorite places to go. After we share students in class are invited to make comments or ask questions.
Our First day back after break... here are a few photos from our first " center time together. This is students "choice time". They have a variety of activities to select from. We will have Center time on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. ( 20-25 minute time period)
PHYSICAL EDUCATION / Gross Motor Skills: We are working with Hoola hoops the next few weeks!

KINDNESS IN THE NEW YEAR
LET'S MAKE SOME SNOW!
In class we were learning about symmetry. We made these snow flakes with pattern block pieces.
If you did not make yours yet, you should have your pieces in your turquoise project's folder. Please make one, and take a picture to sahre it with me. I can add it here on our website. Thank you!
In class we also began making our Snow-people Collages.
Students brought in items from home. Here are the few we did before we closed school.
If you have not made one, please make one at home.
You will find the supplies ( Base pieces) in your turquoise folder. You need to collect your own collage materials. Have Fun.
Be sure to share your finished snowman with me.
Time to develop a few Gross Motor Skills!
And... play games!

Update on our tadpoles. The company I get the tadpole eggs from shared that they will begin the process soon. The weather has been a little cold. They come from Wisconsin. They said they may begin in early February.
