If You….

Happy new year!

I would like to thank each and every one of you for your generous holiday gift. It is my profound pleasure to have the privilege to teach and care for your children each day- getting to know you as parents and advocates on their behalf is bonus.

Last week we read books by Laura Numeroff. Our “Back to School” theme began with If You Take a Mouse to School. We spent the week doing everything the mouse did in the story.

We made furniture out of play dough and a mouse house out of blocks.

We also read If You Give a Pig a Pancake, If You Give a Moose a Muffin, If You Give a Cat a Cupcake and If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. We talked about the sequence of events and what was the same and different in all the books.

We made mouse puppets.

We made puppets of ourselves.


Our letter of the week was “M”.

We practiced cutting.

It was wet outside, so just like the mouse we played ball. We practiced throwing, catching, kicking and rolling the ball to each other.

In Science we learned about different animals that can camouflage in their habitats. IMG_3896 IMG_3894 IMG_3901 IMG_3903 IMG_3905 IMG_3911 IMG_3918

We learned about punctuation.

We created our own artwork.

We spelled with magnets.

We had a special reader from PJ Library that read to us a book about trees in honor of Tu B’Shvat.IMG_3949

In Music we sang and danced in time with the various pieces that Ms. Zina played. IMG_3981 IMG_3985 IMG_3991 IMG_4002
