I am sure you've heard... we have been having a wonderful time exploring the amazing people and activities in our classroom!
Each morning, we have a morning meeting. It is a great way to start our day at school in a fun, engaging, active way. We begin by doing a greeting where we greet everyone in the room (even grown-ups). We have learned a few greetings already and will learn many more! Next, we have a share time. This isn't typically a time to share items but more a time to make connections and learn about each other. Next, we do an activity or energizer and finally read the daily message.
As we learn about the new "tools" (supplies) in our classroom, we introduce how and when to use them as well as how to take care of them and where they are kept. Today we used our cutting and gluing skills to make colorful name mosaics. We noticed that many of our new friends had some of the same letters in their name that we had in ours!
We also explored pattern blocks, played a counting game using a huge ball, did calendar activities and sang songs.
