October 18, 2017-   Choice time- playing, learning and growing together 

The last couple of weeks our class has been growing immensely as a classroom community.  We are learning about friendship (including ways to fill one another’s “buckets”) as well as all the ways to be engaged and involved in our various centers.

In the block center, the children have discovered the big blocks and are making ships and various other things to drive and ride!  They have also discovered our pictures of famous structures and are working together to build them.  The children are enjoying building with a variety of other materials as well and the unifix cubes are making a daily appearance as the children make patterns and count the cubes.  At the art table, the kids are experimenting with the independence of being able to choose various art supplies to create with as well as focusing on making one of our letters of the week.  We cut paper for C, used dot markers for D and cut out eggs for E.  The alphabet letters are always popular and the children are making them with playdough as well as spelling their names in the ABC center.   The children continue to gravitate towards our math and science centers as well dramatic play.  These last couple weeks we have been buying produce from our farmer’s market, weighing pumpkins and gourds in math and sorting animals by their type (mammal, fish or bird) in science.
