Although our kiddos had a short 1st week back, it is always hard getting into the swing of things again and they did great! Our kiddos were so excited to be back in our classroom, playing with their friends, sharing their great stories from home (my fav), and just getting into our comfy routine again. I was so excited to have them back, as well!!!
We have lots of great bits and peices woven into our day. The kids will have a chance working at the Pincher Pom Pom Station. I love this activity as it is so good for their fine motor skils that help us as we sit down to the table with our crayons, glue and scissors.
We also have a Snowman Number Toss Activity that is a super, cute, active way to reinforce those numbers. Once the ball lands on the number, we will jump/clap/stomp/tap that many times!! A great movement break that works on those numbers! It also helps the kiddos to learn waiting and taking their turn (priceless skill in of itself)!
If we have some extra time, I want to start this cute, little fun snowman craft because our kids LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the glue. I try to bring as much mess into our classroom as I can because I know as a mom, it is sometimes easier to let those crafts unfold outside of the home!!! We will be talking about Snowmen for the next several days, and this is a fun way to kick it off. We will chat about the temperatures needed for a successful Snowman. I alos love how this pulls a bit of creative thinking into play. Can't wait to see how these turn out!!!
