We started the week out with some gross motor activities as children used a balance beam or a balance board to control their balance! Our first special math unit was introduced this week about greater than, less than, and equal to. Ask your child about the “Greedy Duck.” We focused on our fine motor skills as well as writing on a mirror was added to our classroom. We also demonstrated our name tracing basket to practice writing their own or their friend’s names. In Practical life, the children polished different kinds of gourds and had a lesson on sponge squeezing with water. We finished our week with some fun art lessons including painting an apple at the Easel and using the sunflower seeds that we tweezed to create sunflower art!
