The Busy Bees Are Buzzing About Hot/Cold and So Much More
Here's the Buzzzzzzzz on the Busy Bees:
New Shape: Rectangle
We felt hot and cold packs.
We put on mittens to see the difference in how hot and cold felt.
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.
