We had a fun month in the Busy Bee room. We are working on:
color recognition and matching.
sorting objects by color.
shape recognition. The shape of the month is a star.
A star goes on top of tree; presents go at the bottom.
off and on.
Christmas lights go off and on. We have pictures of lights with buttons to turn off and on.
patterns with pattern cards and counters, and we started working on a harder patterns AABB (stockings picture, red, red, green, green).
dot sheets at the easel.
large motor: Because of the angle of the arm, using the easel works the shoulder and entire arm.
fine motor. Strengthening hands using clothes pins to hang little stockings on the rope, and other fine motor toys in pictures.
We had pajama day and went on the Polar Express to the North Pole. We are practicing pretend play (language development, imagination, social development).
