Rhyming Fun

This week we have been focusing on nursery rhymes and rhyming words. We started off by reading Humpy Dumpty and listened for the rhyming words.Then we made our own Humpty. 

 
On Tuesday, we retold the nursery rhyme of Humpty Dumpty. We talked about if there was anyway an egg could fall and not break. Then we did an egg experiment. 
The children had tons of fun during the experiment. 

Wednesday, we learned another rhyme and then acted it out..."Jack Be Nimble". The children enjoyed jump over a "candlestick". As we took turns jumping we said the rhyme with our name instead of Jack.



Yesterday we read "Jack and Jill". We identified the rhyming words Jill and hill and then used letter cards to come up with other rhyming words.
After we played rhyming BINGO.

Kitchen Fun...

This week we kicked off our unit by reading Good Enough to Eat
 
 We explored how our body needs food and what type of food it needs by looking at the Food Pyramid. 
After, we sort healthy and non healthy food. We discussed how unhealthy food is just meant to eat on occasion. 

Yesterday, the Memphis Botanic Gardens came and talked to the children about what's a fruit and what's a veggie. The children sorted them, made a veggie person, and planted a spinach seed. 

Today, we made shape pizzas. We started by "making" our crust and then adding the sauce. I gave out the "topping" to each table, and each child picked how many of each shape they wanted. 
After the children made their pizza, they had to record how many of each shape they used.

Bats

Today we learned some fun facts about bats.
We learned:
1. Bats are warm blooded. 
2. They have fur. 
3. Bats eat different things...like fruit, insects, etc. 
4. Scientist have found that bats existed for 50 million years. 
5. They are nocturnal.
6. They hang upside down to sleep. They like to sleep in caves, tree tops, and under bridges.
7. Baby bats are born without fur.
8. They make rapid high-pitched squeaks called ultrasounds. These sounds are too high for  most people to hear. If these sounds hot something, they bounce back. The bat hears the echo and can tell where the object is located. This is called echolocation. 

After we graphed if we thought bats were cute or creepy and then completed a crafts.

Trick or Treat

Yesterday we started our unit on Halloween by reading the story, Where's My Mummy. After we discussed how it's important to stay with our parents when we are out in public. After we made our own mummies. 

Today Mrs. Jessica came and did a lesson with the children. She continued to talk to the children about following directions, have a zipper lip and glue on their bottom. Then, she introduced Superflex and Glass man to the class. 
Here is a little background on this: Superflex is a Superhero Social Thinking Curriculum provides educators and parents fun and motivating ways to teach students with social and communication difficulties. The three part  cognitive behavioral curriculum helps students to develop further awareness of their own thinking and social behaviors and learn strategies to help them develop better self-regulation across a range of these behaviors.
Glassman is one of the unthinkable. He causes our over-reactions to small things. Mrs. Jessica showed the children a video of a child over-reacting and then let the children take turns. 

Here is a peek at the jobs that the children are completing this week:
