So many fun activities have taken place this last month. The kids really enjoyed getting to see the fire truck when they visited and then practicing stop, drop and roll. They learned a catchy son to go with it to the tune of “Hot Cross Buns”:
Stop, Drop and Roll
Stop, Drop and Roll
If your clothes catch fire,
Stop, Drop and Roll.
The children learned about germs in the beginning of the month when we focused on proper handwashing. They were intrigued by the black light showing them germs and how much more they needed to scrub their hands.
We have continued our gardening project and are still talking about insects. They went on a bug hunt to find worms to put in our worm farm but came up finding nothing. want to give a big shout out to Michelle for getting our class worms to they could study further.
We have been really teaching ourselves and the children about Conscious Discipline. This month we read about Shubert and how he calms down in different situations using Drain, Balloon and STAR. We also wanted the children to have a part in classroom routines so now every week they get a new job so that everyone is included. Check out the job chart with your kids so they know what their job is.
