All About Triangles

Our group time activity this week is all about triangles! During group time the boys and girls stood on a triangle that Ms. Laurel taped to the floor. Then, the children counted the sides of the triangle. After that, they had a chance to come up to the board and match a triangle. The boys and girls were very busy!

This month is all about spiders. So during art, we experimented with painting with spiders! This activity had the children’s fine motor skills working, picking up those little spiders and stamping them on the paper. It is exciting to paint with something other than a paint brush!

This week during group time we read Autumn Orange by Christianne C. Jones. Ms. Laurel had a bag full of different items and each child was given a chance to pull out an object to identify. We encouraged the boys and girls to tell the class what they had found! Everything was orange!

The Itsy Bitsy Spider

We are introducing spiders this month! In the toddler room, we have fun doing activities that engage the boys and girls with developing their fine motor skills. With this activity the children had a chance to put the spiders on the web and take them off. Some of the boys and girls did not even want to touch the spiders! It was a very sticky web!

We are all alike….We are all different

During group time we are reading We are all alike…We are all different by the Cheltenham Elementary School Kindergartners. Today we talked about how we are all alike because we all have eyes but we are also different because are eyes are different colors. The children had a chance to come up to the board and put their name next to brown eyes, green eyes or blue eyes.
