Has anyone read or used this book before? I am interested in getting it, but wanted to hear from someone who has used it.
Yesterday, we started to learn the alphabet in Spanish. Please keep the handout I gave the kids because we will be using it for several weeks. I wrote the pronunciation under each letter (with Spanish pronunciation). We did A to M. Next week, we’ll do the rest and they will learn a rap. It is kind of fast, so I wanted them to be introduced to the names of the letters first.
Last week we looked at Monet and his paintings, and worked with watercolors on our own sunflowers. This week we did finger printing and stamping. Next week we will try Kandinsky and his circles.
For ballet, we are always going to be working on flexibility, agility and balance: the key elements that make a superhero, I mean, a ballerina.
We practiced the 5 positions more today (with arms).
I have 2 rules in my class. It’d help reinforce/talk about them at home.
1) Listen to the instructor.
2) No playing with the medicine balls until the end of class. Yup, they’re a distraction, er, a big hit amongst the kiddos.
I always give them a couple of minutes at the end of class to play with them, so I redeem myself a little.
This is the preparation stage for our MOPS project with the littles. K helped me paint toilet paper rolls to make cool “toys.”
Out of the four samples, the most popular ones were the butterfly (for the girls) and the octopus (for the boys). It was really fun making them.
|We are receiving more and more postcards from different states and countries! It is cool seeing the map get some color (we fill and label the states that we have gotten a postcard from). Picture of the map coming soon.|
