Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday season and restful break. We reviewed our classroom responsibilities this week as we welcomed one another back to our community. Bouncing on an exercise ball was added to the movement shelf for some large gross motor work! In art we cut snowflakes out of coffee filters and chose a spot to hang them on our windows! We also used our fine motor skills to trace a snowflake and practice the pencil grip. We added the damper to our bell table and introduced how to stop the sound after striking the bell. The rest of the drawers to the geometric shelf were also available to further identify and explore a variety of two-dimensional shapes
