Welcome back! We hope you all enjoyed a peaceful winter break. We began our week reviewing our classroom procedures, including how to carefully use our classroom rugs and walk safely in our environment. The students seemed very happy to be back in the classroom! Our first new work of January was drawing snowy scenes with chalk. We also added tracing a snowflake to our art shelf. At snack, we introduced pouring water using a beautiful glass pitcher. In writing, we added the insets to our metal insets, creating more opportunities for fine motor skills. Finally, we added a positive and negative snowman cutting activity to the classroom. After cutting a half snowman, students open their shape and create a positive space picture on one side, and a negative space on the other.
