This week we learned about special deliveries and postal services! Throughout the week we created our own special deliveries and then learned how to mail them out to our friends and family! This week was also Valentines week so we created some very special valentines and letters for our families and also shared valentines with our friends in the classroom! Join us and take a look at all the fun things we learned this week!
At the table activities we worked on our fine motor skills with activities such as stacking sweetheart candies as high as we can and counting how many we could stack before it fell down! We also learned what letters are in the word "heart" with a fun dice game at the language table! Some other activities included writing a letter to our families along with some artwork we created, using a scale to measure the weight of different sized packages and decorating our very own heart with lots of valentine's colors!
During our free play we played at the sensory table, in the kitchen, worked on the house and fixing it up like a carpenter, stacked blocks and read with our teachers! Also during free play we gave out our valentines and showed our friends how much we appreciate them!
During circle time we did some of our daily jobs such as counting ad introducing the color of the day by our color detective! Also during this time we were shown how and where letters are mailed! At the end of the day we gathered at the carpet and had a fun story time with Teacher Amber over Valentines!
At the end of our week we got to mail all our letters and valentines we created as we took a trip to the main office! Be sure to check your mailbox!!
Thank you everyone for a very successful week! We hope everyone learned lots about mailing letters and packages and had fun during this valentines week! See you all next week as we go back to our normal schedule and be ready to learn about our theme "America"! Have a great week!
