    Last week, our thematic unit on sunflowers was integrated into all domains of learning. Your children became scientists and used their senses to discover the characteristics and parts of a sunflower. They learned to compare sizes while finding sunflowers that were taller, smaller and just right for themselves. We also played a sunflower seed game called “Feed the Crow” which reinforced number recognition and one-to-one correspondence counting. In Language Arts, we read several stories about the life cycle of sunflowers and the children especially loved listening to Sunflower House by Eve Bunting. We even created our own sunflower paintings using our hand and fingerprints. Click to read the letter.

    This week the children will begin working in their Handwriting Without Tears letter books. Each week the children will be focusing on a new skill to practice. We will learn the “Crayon” song. The song will teach the children the correct way to hold a crayon and pencil using the thumb and pointer fingers pinching above the tip with the middle finger resting underneath and the other two fingers tucked away.

We will also help each child meet and become acquainted with their classmates, teachers and other adults in the First School. During this unit, we explore our classrooms, the First School building, our garden, and the School’s campus. We will discuss safety in the car, on the playground, inside our classroom, and during fire drills. Each class will discuss and create classroom rules. Click to read letter.
