We started a new writing unit this week! For the next couple of weeks, we will be exploring all kinds of writing. It is important for children to see the importance of writing and how writing is everywhere! We started off by exploring different types of writing (cards, postcards, invitations, advertisements, menus, maps, etc). Thank you for those that brought in writing examples!
We opened more literacy centers this week as well-Big Book Center, where children read big book using pointers with a partner.

We have been working on learning and practicing numbers this week and learning how to count through games. One game we learned is Racing bears. This is a game we play with a partner, you roll the die, count the dots, move your bear and then your partner goes. We emphasize counting and making sure you are moving the number you roll.
This week we finally opened up our dramatic play center!
-Take home books were sent home on Friday. Please make sure your child sends back the book every Friday. We will be switching books only on Fridays!
