Our theme for this week is Artists. We talked about different artists, what they were famous for, and what types of tools the artists use to create their work. The children did a self-portrait of themselves using a mirror, crayons, coloring pencils, and markers. They drew a picture of whatever they wanted using oil pastels. They learned that artists sometimes need inspiration to create something different and unique. They also learned that sometimes artists do not use paints, paintbrushes, but instead they use items such as metal, glass, etc. The children created a mixed media art using ripped paper, tissue paper, yarn, stickers, etc to create their own art. It certainly made them creative and they were so excited! They practiced writing the artists' names all in lowercase to get practice writing in lowercase and they also practiced writing names of different tools artists use. They have been writing more this week and I have seen some improvement over the last few weeks in their writing. I also have been focusing increasing their number recognition by using the 100 days of school chart. They have been doing wonderful and they are trying their hardest to remember what number comes next.
We haven't been going outside due to the cold temperatures but that doesn't stop us from getting our physical activity in. We have been doing different activities such as yoga, balance beam, red light-green light, etc. The children have told me that they love it when we can play inside because they do different activities. I try to change it up so it does not get boring for them.
We talked about upcoming activities such as Hula in the Coola and Valentine's Day. I have sent out information about Valentine' Day Celebration and the sign up sheet is by the parent board. Feel free to sign up any time! I will send out a reminder the week before our Valentine's Day Celebration. Any questions, feel free to reach out to me!
Have a great week!
