We completed our Apple unit during September:) We discussed the parts of the apple, Johnny Appleseed, and the different colors that apples can be. We have been doing many fun activities! :) We tasted red, yellow, and green apples and then graphed our favorite. We also had an apple food tasting day and then we graphed our favorite apple food. As a number review, we read "Ten Apples Up on Top", drew our favorite character from the book, and arragned 10 apples on top of their head. It's been a blast!

Every morning we review important math concepts using the Smart Board. The kids love using the Smart Board to learn about patterns, shapes, counting, numbers, money, the days of the week, the months of the year, the four seasons, etc.! Please continue work with your child at home on these concepts.

We have so much fun learning during centers and group time! :) Some of our fun activities include: writing our letters, name, and sight words in shaving cream, writing and identifying our sight words and letters on dry-erase boards, using the Smart Board to play sight word games, creating patterns with counting bears and pattern blocks, alphabet go-fish, chalk, starfall.com, etc. The kids are learning to clean up after themselves, how to use an inside voice without disturbing others,and how to work together!

We are studying patterns during math! The kids have been doing some exciting activities to practice extending and creating patterns. We have used the Smart Board, linking cubes, counting bears, stickers, and blocks to create and extend patterns! Today, we strung fruit loop pattern necklaces! It was so much fun! :)
