Willow room- MWF class

It has been a very busy few weeks for me, and I have gotten behind on my daily tidbits.  I will get back to doing the daily activities this next week, but for now, I want o recap what has been happening in each class.

Our class has been learning about letters and letter sounds this year and we have been doing some books about the Alphabet. We also started learning about Nursery Rhymes

We read "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" by Bill Martin, "The letters are loose" by Lisa Campbell Ernst, "Max's ABC" by Rosemary Wells, "It looked like spilt milk" by Charles G. Shaw, "A silly snowy day" by Michael Colman, Mother Goose Three little kittens; "Itsy Bitsy Spider, and we celebrated one of the great children's author's, Dr. Seuss, birthday by reading The cat in the hat.  We made his great hats for art too.

For art the past couple of weeks we have done the following:

We used funny brushes and painted with red, yellow, blue and white. We made icicles by slanting a tray and dripping silver and white glitter paint with eye droppers down blue paper. We used letters dipped in tempra paint for an ABC picture. We made special pictures to go with our "Spilt milk" book- we folded a sheet of paper in half and dripped white paint on one side.  Then we folded the paper over and pressed on the paper.  When we opened it, it looked like a shaped cloud in the sky- we asked the children what they thought their picture looked like. We used water colors with liquid starch on wax paper to create unique pictures.  for our nursery rhyme- Itsy Bitsy Spider- we painted paper plates black using powder paint and water.  We will add pipe cleaner legs and google eyes to create fun spiders.

We have been doing large group floor puzzles; we also have continued to work on our letter of the day and the picture charts of words that start with each letter.
