This week in the Little Dippers class we will be kicking off our November theme, “Health & Fitness”. Please check out the November newsletter that will go home with your child this week.
On Monday/ Tuesday, our topic will be healthy attitudes. We will start the day in circle time. We will read “Pete the Cat’s Groovy Buttons”. We also go over calendar time.
For our craft, we will be making pictures of things that make us feel happy, sad, or mad.
During learning circle time, we will get active by playing balloon badminton. Then, we will have a scavenger hunt for yellow items around the room. We will also read the story, “Llama Llama Mad at Mamma” and discuss how we handle different emotions with a positive attitude.
In our small group time, we will be playing a memory game and practicing with our scissors.
During centers time, we will be introducing different fitness games.
At home, you can work on using scissors and color recognition.
On Wednesday/ Thursday, our topic will be germs. We will start the day in circle time. We will read “Camilla Crayon.” We also go over calendar time.
For our craft, we will be making mouth cut outs that we will attach to a Popsicle stick. Then, we will be gluing marshmallows on for teeth.
During learning circle time, we will get active by playing indoor hopscotch. Then, we will work on our healthy living booklets. We will also read the story, “Just the Way You Are.”
In our small group time, we will practice making groups. We will be doing a goldfish count. We are focusing specifically on the number 3.
During centers time, we will be doing different fitness games and practicing making groups.
