What is the best way to eat a circle? Spread sauce, add grated cheese and bake for 15 minutes. Just as the little red hen makes a perfect little pizza in the story, “The Little Red Hen Makes a Pizza,” each student in the MWF class made their own mini-pies. Shape recognition will become imbedded in the curriculum. We began our shape study by eating a circle (round pizza bagels). Reinforcing the circle shape a paper pizza was made. Students’ were instructed to add two halves (semi circles) together to make a whole circle. Next they added 10 toppings using 1:1 correspondence to complete the task.
The T/TH class have been busy preparing Thanksgiving baskets for their families. Turkeys in every shape and size will be gracing tables. You can hear the gobble, gobble, gobble loud and clear, as the children themselves become strutting turkeys.
Our Indian American study continues with songs, poems and stories about the first Thanksgiving. Monday and Tuesday you can join the classes for their culmination of this unit.
*Note to parents: Flu season is here. I saw one case of confirmed flu at work last week. For those parents who like to have their children vaccinated, please remember that the vaccine takes about 30 days to be fully active - so sooner is better. For children who have not had the flu shot prior to this year, you must get two vaccinations.
Hand washing at home: As winter approaches so does the inevitable stomach bug. Please remember that the only thing that gets the germy beasties off our hand is soap, water, and rubbing. Purel is great for runny noses, fevers, croup, cough, cold, flu... but not vomiting and diarrhea! Wash your hands, wash your kids hands, and try not to eat their leftovers!
