We hope everyone had a nice three day weekend! Last week in the Hawks class we glued jewels in the shape of a 'j' and tasted different kinds of jelly. In music, Ms. Ashley taught us addition, subtraction and about classical music. We made snowmen out of marshmallows (we might have done some marshmallow tasting as well!)
This week we will be talking about letter 'i' and we will explore ice blocks in the sensory table, paint with colored ice cubes in art and even make ice cream cones! We will also try our large motor and listening skills with the game of "freeze"! Remember to send some words that start with the letter 'i'.
Happy Birthday to Charlotte who turned four this week!
