|Brooklyn was given the matching cards, and she was able to get them matched up very quick, too|
|The bears were strung by Cooper and it was done with accuracy, with no help|
|Sammy had a number puzzle and was able to put the numbers from 1 to 5 together quickly|
|This activity was to match the color of jacket to the color on the gingerbread man.|
|The color word is written on the belly of the gingerbread man. This game also has a number on the foot of the gingerbread man and the same number of buttons on the jacket, so it can be used for two games.|
|This game is matching the opposites, such as light and dark, day and night, back and front. Ivy had no trouble matching them|
Each child was given a template with the upper case and lower case "A" Then they were given strips of ants to cut and paste onto the letter. This is to help them with the cutting experience and to follow a particular shape. They are all improving with each activity.
|It is important that they learn to stay on the lines and Ivy does it very nicelyl|
Sam is learning how to hold the pencil, something that doesn't always come easily for 4 year olds. Sam is the youngest of the kids and is not quite 4 yet, so he is progressing nicely.
|This is the bathroom the boys use and I just had to show the parents how well they get the task done before we have our snacks.|
|The girls have a smaller area to get their hands washed, but they still get the job done.|
|Each of the children have a caricature of themselves that are on the wall to the play room. It is always fun to listen to them pointing out who is who and giving it a pat to show it is theirs.|
The end of another week!! We even took a walk outside to see that we have two varieties of ants that live on our property. Those nasty little red ones that sting, and the big black ones.
More fun things learned and more activities to help them grow!! Several were rewarded for their behavior this week, and I am pleased with their growth in several areas. I hope parents can see their changes. Yes, it was a good week at this PreK
