Panda Bear News:  –The 2′s had a great week.  The children had a lot of fun in art this week.  We painted, made alphabet soup, and made our buses yellow.  For circle time, we continued to practice colors and counting with our fish felt board story and our fish fingerplay.  We sang “Wheels on the Bus” and our “Hello” song.  New this week, we introduced the letter A and we found out what was inside our mystery A box – an apple!  In honor of the letter A, our alligator puppet made an appearance to the delight of the kids.  The children are learning our transition songs and doing a great job with all of the transitions.  We sing the “Clean Up” song from “Barney” for cleaning up the classroom,  “Put your Finger on the Wall” for walking in the hallways, and we even sing a transition song to get our hands clean for snack and to get ready to pray.  We are really proud of the 2′s class, and we look forward to another fun week.
