This week we added fabric and lights to the cozy corner, making it an instant attraction to the children. When it's not in use to help a child relax, it is being used to cozy up with a good book.
The children's interest in letters has ramped up. We have been working on tracing letters for our morning message, and exploring letters with a magnetic alphabet board. Since we only have one board, the children have had a lot of practice with being patient while waiting for their turn.
We will soon be introducing clipboards with paper and writing/drawing tools to the block area so that the children can draw their structures. This week we began by drawing magna-tile structures.
Since we have been talking about our feelings/emotions lately (ask your children about what a high and a low is), we have noticed a lot more teamwork happening in the classroom.
