Thursday Feb.12th

Today the Children were introduced the letter B. Upper Case & Lower Case the ba ba sound and some items that begin with the letter B. Today they traced the letters with their fingers. We also introduced the number 10. We counted out 10 tiny crackers for snack. In keeping with the Valentine Theme Our books today were The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein and Mama, Do You Love Me? by Barbara M. Joosse. These stories tell about the different types of love and some sacrifices (The Giving Tree) and unconditional love as in Mama Do you Love Me? This is a story full of extraordinary vocabulary words. The children heard new words such as Inuit (IN-oo-eet) which mean "the people" which is what most native Arctic people call themselves instead of what they are often referred to as -- Eskimos. We will read this story again... I can tell it is going to be one of their favorites!*** Mama, do you love me? Yes I do, Dear One. I'll love you till the stars turn to fish in the sky and the puffin howls at the moon.***
Today during ABC MUSIC & ME the children enjoyed turning spoons into musical instruments during Kitchen Commotion. This type of Instrument Exploration helps them to develop a steady beat - this skill is important in learning to use scissors and bouncing a ball.
