This week, we started a new theme: Transportation! The children had lots of fun learning about different types of transportation. We talked about the types of they already were familiar with, and then they learned about new forms. They told their classmates about the kind of transportation they use to come to school every day, and discussed what they were making for their transportation project. In Math, they were introduced to Mr. Mix–up, a puppet that often makes Math mistakes. Mr. Mix-up starts counting, and when he makes a mistake the childrenstop and correct him. Another game they played this week was Dinosaur Shop, where they worked in pairs to sort and count dinosaurs. First, they sorted dinosaurs onto plates and then they counted the dinosaurs to tell how many there were on each plate. Also they played the game using toy vehicles which they sorted and counted. They either sorted them by color or type.
Here is what is happening coming up:
