We had a quieter morning here in the 2A class, but got to work on lots of painting, gluing, and playdough projects. When they first arrived, a paint-rainbow was waiting on the table with some fun sponge brushes. We are happy to be involved in all of these processes of painting- no matter the end result! We did some other color mixing painting and saw how we could make orange, green and purple. 

Books & Songs

  • We read: Flamingoes on the Roof a book of poetry, If You're a Robot and You Know it (which Angelo happily announced "Read 'If You Happy!'" and All Aboard!
  • We sang: Good morning, Days of the week, Skinny ma-rinky-dinky-dink
  • We talked about the letter A and came up with a few different words that start with A: Angelo, Ava, Ant, Apple, Alligator. Then everyone took a turn trying to make the letter A. We'll keep practicing since everyone has started showing some interest in the alphabet and in some pre-writing skills. 
  • Zara and Rachel wrote everyone's names and counted how many letters they have
