We are off to a great start in Kindergarten. Here are some pictures from our afternoon Developmental Play Stations. The children love play dough and it really helps to strengthen our hands for handwriting.
Housekeeping helps the children develop social skills and pretending enhances language skills.
Legos, blocks and puzzles develop fine motor skills, social skills and language skills. Believe it or not, these things also help us learn beginning reading skills! Check back in a few days for some neat pictures of some ocean activities we have done!
We had a great first week of school. We learned about the classroom and what we will do to make every day the best it can be.
The children practiced going to literacy stations. In the bathtub the children enjoy reading and looking a books. At the playdough station the children make long snakes and form letters. At writing they make a picture and write some words to lable the picture.
These boys are working on matching uppercase letters to lower case letters with our Chester the Racoon cards.
