Playful Bunnies News: R is for robot! This week the bunnies had robot, rainbow, and zoo fun! We continued taking care of zoo animals in the playroom. During craft, we used our fine motor skills to put zoo animal stickers on a zoo map, we made our own robots with shapes, and we played with zoo animals in play dough. During circle time we learned about the colors of the rainbow with scarf, movement fun. The bunnies loved acting like robots and dancing to a robot song!

Cool Cats News:  We have taken a small break from our letter of the week curriculum to have some fun with our zoo unit.  The Cool Cats have enjoyed making enclosures and pretending to be zoo keepers.  We also learned about primary colors and learned how they mix to make other colors.  We learned about opposites by reading books and doing opposite actions with rhythm sticks. We also had fun learning about the 5 senses. Friday we enjoyed a popcorn party as we focused on each sense, seeing, hearing, and smelling the popcorn pop, and touching and tasting the popcorn in front of us!  🍿

Top Dogs Class News:  This week we met Mr. R, ripping rubberbands, who brought us some rubberbands, things for relay races and Reese’s Hearts.  We began our Right to Read weeks by learning more about Dr. Seuss, Ezra Jack Keats and Maurice Sendak.  We have earned 6 pieces of popcorn so far, for our at home reading logs.  We need 9 more pieces to earn a popcorn party!  We worked on assessing name recognition, same and different pictures, and sequencing.  We even enjoyed Girl Scout cookie tastings!
