My Five Senses - Kindergarten/PK2

Posted by Lakewood Childcare Center on March 12, 2020 at 6:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Kindergarten has been continuing to learn about their 5 senses. We have learned about hearing, touching and taste! These next two days we will learn about seeing and smelling. We are now counting coins in different ways to make a dollar. We will keep practicing this skill and using it in our play food station. As we make our way through March please remember to bring coats, hats and even gloves on colder days. In our parent corner the whole class came up with the idea of recommendation sheets for both the kids and the parents. So, in the parent corner I will add recommendation sheets. You can write something you think would improve the classroom or improve your child’s success. The kids will also do the same thing when they feel like they could benefit more from something! Remember to bring book baggies on Friday for new books AND also your leprechaun traps!
