Bela's Journal Report: July 27 - 31, 2009

Dear Mommy and Daddy,

We had the most wonderful time this week. We enjoyed the activities in class as we explored and experimented with the musical glass using the same sizes of glass but different amounts of water to produce a certain sound. We introduced the letters Nn and Gg and pictures that begins with them through board drills and had reinforcement activities through art. Like for letter Nn, we did a nest collage where the kids tries to design the nest using different dry goods (black beans, corn kernel, rice grains and colorful macaroni.) We also had noodle cooking after which the kids had fun eating the noodles. As for letter Gg, we planted our own Gumdrop Tree using gummy bears. They had fun drawing different kinds of feelings in the sand. We also read books about the different feelings like Happy, Sad, Scared, Angry and Surprised. We continued discussing the concept of is and are and rote counting from 1 – 40. We also introduced the concept of big and small and the concept beside and between.
