Welcome to the Green Room

December

Classroom Happenings:

It was a happy and fun filled November! In December, we will focus on the values of sharing and caring for this season.  Please see parent handbook for more information on how we celebrate this season.

We really enjoyed our “library field trip” day when Miss Julie came to visit us and our Orange Room friends.  She shared stories, dances, and finger plays with us.  She gave us turkey headbands to make too.  We learned how to make a thank you card to show we care.

We will be starting to use story props for journal writing and classroom stories in December.  Our November “What I am Thankful for” story was so creative and amazing.

We were excited when we learned about voting and setting up our ballot box and learning about our candidates.  The process of voting was exciting for us and we use voting in our daily group times too.

What an exciting time we had doing STEM activities.  Making geodomes, exploring magnets, constructing catapults, making cars move, and creating a classroom machine/building was incredible and so much fun.

In the upcoming weeks, we will focus on using our senses to discover the month of December.  We will be adding scentsy jars we make and light sights to our science area.  We will be conducting science experiments using candy canes and evergreens.
