Classroom News !
Our First Week!
We are off to a great start! The children have spent this week learning about our classroom and making new friends. They explored classroom materials and how to take care of them. We have practiced using our playdough, crayons, pencils and scissors during work time. We even had time to complete our very first, "science experiment!" The children were very curious about the pit that was inside my peach! First, they wanted to know what it was. Then, they wondered what was inside the pit? They asked some very good questions. The children made many predictions about what might be inside. Their thoughts were everything from spiders to worms. They also came-up with the idea to use a hammer to crack the pit open because it was so hard. So, .........that's what we did! We discovered that inside the pit was a seed.
This is a great example of some of the discovery processes that will be going on inside our classroom. Be sure to gently, encourage your child to talk about their day and what happened at school. Ask them about the science experiment and what they thought about it. I am looking forward to sharing more about our classroom activities throughout the school year.
The next few weeks we will focus on classroom expectations, some rules, how to be a good friend and how to work together as a team!
