Sproutlings News – February 12, 2018
On Friday, January 16th, our teachers had a Professional Development day at Sproutlings. Topics covered included CPR & First Aid, Developmental Milestones, and Engaging Read-Alouds. Teachers were given opportunities to collaborate. It was a great day!
One of our favorite things to do is dance in front of our mirror. We love ️ looking at ourselves. We’ve been playing with our toy phone and making some pretty important calls. We also crawled through our tunnel. It’s always a treat when we can play in it. Some of us have been trying to jump. We’re finding it isn’t easy, but we will keep trying. Our book this week was Elmo’s Fuzzy Valentine by Naomi Klienberg and our song was “Baby Bumble Bee.”
Happy Valentine’s Day from the Little Sprouts class! This week we talked about the holiday of love and friendship. We read Happy Valentine’s Day, Mouse by Laura Numeroff and danced around to Barney’s “I Love You!” For art, we worked so hard to decorate our Valentine’s Day mailbox. We also sponge painted hearts and used dot markers to color a heart. Little Sprouts also celebrated with a party! Thank you to all the parents who contributed.
We’ve been having so much fun singing songs during our music class with Miss Robin. We also had a great time with our Elefante Music teacher and exercising in our Stretch-N-Grow class! And from everyone in the Little Sprouts classroom, who hope you had a happy Valentine’s Day!
This past week we studied the letter M. We came up with words that start with M. We also finished up our study on buildings. The Beanstalks have enjoyed constructing buildings with different materials. We also have loved celebrating Valentine’s Day. We made hearts with red paint and enjoyed making a Valentine’s Day mailbox. Thank you to all the parents who contributed to our Valentine’s Day party. We had a blast! Our next study will be on pets. We can’t wait!
Pre K 3
We had a great week in Pre K-3 wrapping up our study about buildings. Our new letter of the week was “M”. We read the books Keep Counting, A Crankenstein Valentinesand Building, Building, Building. We sang a construction song and “5 Little Hearts.” This week we focused on what we learned about buildings. In sensory we played with silly putty.The kids had a blast! We built our names with hearts for Valentines Day. In art this week we used heart shaped stamps and painted with them. We also made lanterns for Chinese New Year. In literacy we took toothpicks and marshmallows and made the letter “M” and we focused on the sound the letter “M” makes. We came up with words that start with the letter “M”. In math this week we introduced the number 19 and sorted hearts by their size. The kids had a great time at our Valentines Day Party! Next week we will be starting a new study on pets.
