This week we began the new learning unit, Moving On, and the first big idea, I am ready to go to new places. We discussed new things we have done so far this year. We discussed what things were easy to learn and what things were more difficult. What did we have to do when it was hard? Look Where I’m Going!… In the following center time, we encouraged the children to draw pictures of new places they would like to travel to.

Take a Trip…Today we took a sightseeing trip around the country. We took the cameras we had made in a previous center time with us. We looked at pictures of new places such as canyons, forests, and mountains. We discussed what we could see at each new place. In the following center time, we encouraged the children to create a postcard of the new place they visited.

Where Is It? In math this week we are describing position. Today the children enjoyed moving bears into different positions on a math mat.

Please send in any empty paper towel tubes for a center activity in the next two weeks. Thank you for all you do!
