Under the Sea--Ocean Room Happenings with Ms. Gabi and Ms. Debbie

November and December are filled with hustle and bustle! We use the holidays to support our learning with theme-based activities. Art projects, language games, stories, songs, science experiments, math and writing activities are all designed to develop important kindergarten skills.

As the children have become comfortable with school routines, they are able to branch out and enjoy social situations which develops their speaking and listening skills, too.

We are so proud of the kiddos in Ocean Room! They are making great strides in their learning.

Here are a few of the things we've been up to...

Thanksgiving Feast with our Jungle Room and Ranch Room friends

The "Ocean" Tribe!




Learning makes us happy!

P is for pizza







Dramatic play helps develop reading readiness!

Working to build fine motor skills




Cooperative games
Mixing colors

Fossil art and making butter


Don't forget birthdays! Turning five is a very big deal.

 It's hard to believe we are halfway through the school year. The next few months will be filled with growth and maturity as the children prepare for kindergarten. We can't wait to see what the future holds!

Mrs. Nettie's 3's AM/PM Classes

Deep into the holiday season here in the Forest room, everyone is sharing giggles, making crafts, and positioning their learning caps just right! We have had a blast learning about lots of new things, such as Fall, pumpkins, Halloween, monsters, pets, insects, colors, Thanksgiving, Winter weather, Christmas, and so much more! The children are becoming more and more comfortable with their number and letter identification, as well as their printing. We have covered many shapes, and have used our critical thinking skills to turn shapes into different creatures and objects, as well as identifying where we have seen these shapes outside of the classroom, in real world situations.

Here is a glimpse into the exciting moments within our classroom! :o)

Mrs. Nettie & Mrs. Lisa
