The Orange Bears in January
Jan 24 2016
Birds and Penguins!
The Orange Bears water colored birds and glued penguins together.
We discussed migration and how birds are different than other animals because they have feathers.
We learned that penguins don't fly but are VERY suited to their climate.
The Daddy Penguins care for the egg, while the Mommy Penguins look for food.
Our water table was filled with ice, water beads, penguins and Olaf for some Arctic fun ... and COLD fingers!
Snowmen and Mittens!
We talked about big, medium, and small to make a snowman and what a snowman needs to wear.
We reviewed what items we need to stay warm when we are outside during the winter.
The Orange Bears also worked on their cutting skills to cut out a mitten.
Winter Trees and Ice Cube Painting!
The Orange Bears painted with empty thread spools to show snowflakes in winter tree art.
The students used their creativity using ice cube paints to paint masterpieces.
More JANUARY Activities!
By matching cards and playing search and find in the water table, we worked on letter and number identification.
The Orange Bears used tongs to pinch pompoms and sort them by color to work on our fine motor muscles used for handwriting.
