The drippy, dreary weather didn’t stop us this week! The children traversed the climbing structure, scaled the dome,
worked in the garden,
and problem solved how to create a roof to make a hiding spot in the big blocks.
Also this week, some 4/5s checked out a classic children’s game, “Hi! Ho! Cherry-O!” involving spinning a spinner (a tricky fine motor task), identifying numbers, and picking cherries from a cherry tree (another challenging fine motor task).
These girls played a “Get Moving” matching/memory game,
stamps were stamped,
and science tools were put to good use.
Mobilo connecting pieces were a big hit!
Here is a “transport…”
“…that can turn into a double decker…”
“…and it can have a jet booster.”
Here is a “dragon fire truck” with wings:
Check out this transforming creature…
…that eventually becomes a “horned scorpion type of dragon that breathes poisonous stuff.”
This week’s Town Meeting ended with a Collaborative Drawing activity. Children from all classrooms were divided into 5 groups and chose among the suggested topics of “Candy Castle,” Dream Home,” “Animal Habitats,” and a few other possibilities as the theme for their group drawing. The older children supported the 4/5s who jumped right in! Here are the works in progress, which will soon be displayed in the mudroom.
Here’s to another great week in the 4/5s classroom!
