9-18-17 Today in preschool, we went to the gym and played with balls. We practiced throwing to a friend.
For STEM, our focus was technology.
The students got to explore on an iPad after learning how to handle them. We carry them with 2 hands and lay them on a table to play with them. They learned how to turn an iPad on and how to use their fingers to scroll through the screens to find something they wanted to play. We also were introduced to using Seesaw. The students took a picture, having to center before clicking.
While some students were learning about iPads, the other were building with wooden block.
We wrote in our STEM notebooks and did movement activities in the classroom as it was so wet out.
This is really a great group! They work really well together.
Today during our STEM class we focused on Math.
We explored pattern blocks. Found patterns in the classroom and created our own patterns.
We stamped a pattern in our STEM notebooks using paint and pattern blocks to commemorate our day.
Thursday is our music day so the students got to go to the music room.
We also spent some time outdoors playing on this wonderful day!
Have a great night!
Tuesday, September 11, 2018 Sorry about not sending a note on Thursday. I am still working on getting into a routine with my new schedule and totally forgot. As you may have figured out from the bags that came home we did a nature walk. The students also got to go to music that day.
Today we had fun going to the gym and to the STEM lab.
In gym we played red light, green light and What time is it Mr. Fox?
I then read the story, The House that Jack Built, and we got to go to the stem lab to build with planks. I asked the students if all the buildings were the same and of course they were not. I told them that I liked how if their buildings didn’t work out that they tried a different one.
We had a great discussion!
We made a picture in our STEM notebooks and spent some time outside.
I really enjoy this little group!
