Welcome to the Green Room
Welcome to the Green Room
January and February Highlights
The Green Room’s book project is in full swing! We have learned all the parts of a book and we are working on our story telling skills too.
We have had a Christmas theme, a Dad theme, and a puppy themed day. The children love having their parents/grandparents join us as guest readers.
We are working on recognizing our last names and our friends’ last names too. We will start writing our full names very soon.
We are on letter Qq in our ABC books and we continue to work on our math, language, and fine motor skill buckets.
In January and February we have been learning about the art form of printing with many different materials and learning to make pinch pots and coil pots with clay. We have also had fun acting out stories, doing a little ballet, and beginning to learn about the orchestra, its’ families, and the instruments in preparation for our field trip to Powell Hall and the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra Tiny Tunes concert!
