The Busy Bees Are Buzzing About Hot/Cold and So Much More

February 13, 2017

 

Here's the Buzzzzzzzz on the Busy Bees:

 

  • Color:  White

  • New Shape:  Rectangle

  • Concepts:  Hot/cold.  

    • We felt hot and cold packs.  

    • We put on mittens to see the difference in how hot and cold felt.

  • Themes:  

    • Snow, snowmen and the color white

    • Dressing for winter weather

    • Rectangles and sleds

    • Penguins and polar bears

 

The Busy Bees are also:

 

  • working on pre-writing skills using salt trays and paintbrushes to make designs.

  • reviewing colors and shapes every day.  The new color and shape for this month is white and rectangle.

  • working on counting using math bags.  The Bees get to bring in items that we count during circle.

    • They use a 10-frame math board to help with counting.

  • working on counting by route and 1:1 correspondence.

  • practicing fine motor skills and strengthening our hands and different muscles.

    • They have worked on both vertical and horizontal surfaces. For the vertical, they have used a hanging LEGO mat and a sticky snowman. For the horizontal surface, they have utilized the art table and other tabletop structures.

  • having "tummy time" during circle to work on those important core muscles.
