While reading the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, we made our own Chicka Chicka Boom Boom trees! The students learned how to write their name and then counted how many letters are in their name.

It was raining today, so we had an inside recess! Dr. Jean has a great DVD that encourages students to get moving. We did many fun exercises- the students loved it.

Each morning we have an interactive newsletter that the students help fill in. Here you see the days helper filling in her name.

The Tooty Ta is the students' favorite song. Thumbs up, elbows back, feet apart, knees together, tongue out, eyes shut, turn around!
To help the students learn the shapes, we sing a song called Shape-A-Loo. All students get a pack of shapes and put the shapes in and out and "shake them all about" during the song.

August 9-13

This week our focus was on learning the rules and procedures of the classroom. Each day we focused on one rule and one procedure and practiced it until it was mastered! Here you see the students doing centers.
Walking in a strait line is a challenge for studnets who have never been required to do so! Two feet in the square by the blue!!
The playground is one of the student's favorite spots. There were lots of laughs and squeals on the playground this week. The slide is so inviting that the students want to slide down all together. Each day we practice skills and writing on our "Morning News". The helper points to the words as Mrs. Abraham reads, and then the students help fill in the blanks. At the end of the day, the helper takes home the morning news. You can see the students in the top left picture with their spy glasses on to "see what they can see"!Our color this week was RED so for show-and-tell the students brought something red! It was the best turn out for show and tell I've ever seen.
