|M is for Moose!|
This week, we learned all about the letter "Mm".
We also took the opportunity to examine the Arctic and the people and animals who inhabit it. We collectively constructed a sugar cube igloo (and didn't sneak any bites!)...
...and were proud of our finished product!
We also looked at lots of slides of Aurora Borealis. While we understood it was a night sky phenomenon that can be seen from the arctic, I stopped short of explaining the earths geomagnetic field lines to my preschoolers.
But that certainly didn't stop us from creating our own interpretative abstract art of the northern lights.
This was a good time for our m-moons.
This week, we also practiced recognizing and counting 1-20. While we're pretty solid on 1-10, numbers 11-20 will definitely be reviewed often for the remainder of the school year.
And we had fun with the __ET word family.
Towards the end of our week, we shifted our focus to Martin Luther King, Jr.
When creating their take-home book, I simply used the words of our MLK song that were already familiar.
We also had fun creating our handprints...
...to make a friendship wreath.
