Beginning of Week 3 BBFK

Welcome to all the new parents joining our blog. This is a great place to see what your kiddos have been doing in the classroom. Please feel free to leave us a message, as we often look at the blog together during the week to reflect on our learning.

We have started the week putting together our own Brown Bear, Brown Bear big book so the kiddos can reread it often. At one of our centres they have the opportunity to retell the story using stick puppets.

Another centre we have set up for the kiddos to experiment with is hidden colour words and alphabet letters as a find and match activity. All the kiddos have loved running their hands through the confetti as it feels pretty cool.

Many other kiddos are enjoying the sand table where they can look for letters they are familiar with and tell me or a friend the name. We are still in the beginning stages of recognizing and naming letters. This is great reinforcement and something that can be done at home too in a bowl of salt or sugar.  Can your kiddo find the letters in their name and say the letters out loud?

Continuing on the colour inquiry this week, one of our kiddos made a "rainbow" meal for the house centre. Bringing in the theme from last week she called it our fruit salad bowl.

What a gat start to this 3rd week. I can't wait to see what the rest of the week brings with these kiddos who have come so far already!
