Happy New Year! Our first Star Student of the New Year was Makaya. She was so proud to receive her certificate and works very hard while at school.
It was a cold and snowy week and we had several days of indoor recess. However, we still try to move even though we are in our classroom. Our large sensory toys are our favourite and it is so important to keep active when we can not go outside. The PT, Stacy, was here on Monday morning and did some fun winter-themed exercises with us. We are all getting so strong and fit.
Staying with the winter theme, we made the most beautiful winter trees in art. We used bubble wrap to create the snow on the trees and even added birds. We all enjoy our art work when it is displayed in the classroom.
Gymnastics has started for our gym times and we are learning how to move safely on the mats. We are practicing such gross motor concepts as, balancing, rolling and making interesting shapes with our bodies.
Next week we will be starting new units in math and science so rest up over the weekend and get ready to learn.
