We played a rainbow color guessing game and worked on some floor puzzles.
We read "The biggest boy" by Kevin Henkes.
We worked on our self portrait pages for our "all about me book" , we brought in mirrors so the children could look at themselves to draw their self portrait. We measured how tall the children are.
We had out an apple tree matching game today- you place the correct number of apples on each tree.
We sang a phonics song called "funny fall animals", which helps children learn the sounds of beginning letters. we also sang "The ants go marching"
We had a visit today from Firefighter Jim and he put on his whole uniform and showed us what he would look like if he ever came to help us in a fire. He put on his mask and talked through it and breathed through it so we would know what it sounded like too.
