This weeks theme is "All About Me"
The children made a mirror by decorating their paper handle mirror and gluing on a paper mirror, glued on various face parts on tan, white, brown and black paper- hair, eyes, nose and mouth so the children can see the different skin tones as we talk about how we all have different skin tone and it's OKay, it's all about me. Flower handprints by stamping hands on paper to make various colored hand prints, the children clothed paper girls/boys with different texture and pattern quilt squares, and tomorrow the children will finish the week by making a Friendship quilt by placing hand prints all over quilt squares and we will glue all the squares together and hang.
The children explored with the following materials to practice their early math skills, counted colored chips with containers with slits to count one at a time, Colored shape blocks to match and name colors, counting cookies by dropping them into the cookie jars and able to see the numbers on the back of each cookie and, tomorrow we will practice colors by matching colors to the wall.
