I am very excited to switch gears and talk about the many changes that happen during winter! We are planning collaborative activities that involve signing, motor skills, math, language arts, and reading!! For each activity we will make a craft, discuss the directions and skills targeted, learn new signs, and read a story. We are going to have a great time!
The following are dates for the collaborative activities:
Some of the new signs we will target this month include the following:
Seasonal:Tree, Star, Decoration, Lights, Gift, Candy Cane, Snow, Winter, Cold, and Snowflake
Colors: Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple, White, and Black
Other: Help, Music, Jacket, Happy, Play, Craft, and Work
We will continue to practice and incorporate all of our signs (new and old) in the classroom. Check out this site to learn how to sign our words and many more! http://www.signingsavvy.com/
As always, we will be working on our five core subjects and with plenty of sensory materials.
This month we do not have school from December 22nd through January 2nd. Schools reopen on January 3rd.
With the weather getting cooler, please remember your winter clothing! We will be taking walks outside on days that aren’t too cold.
I look forward to another magnificent month!
