During this learning theme the children will explore the concepts of what is snow and how do arctic animals, like polar bears, walruses, and penguins keep warm in their cold homes? At the end of the month on Friday, January 31 we will end the theme with a Hibernation Pajama party. The children will wear their PJ’s to school and bring along their favorite teddy bear or stuffed animal for hands on activities exploring how animals hibernate for the Winter. The children can hardly wait for it.  At Art Time the children took handfuls of artificial snow and piled it high on to their collages to make fur to keep their paper polar bears nice and warm.
We practiced Ll letter recognition, phonics, and words that begin with L like lion, lamb, and lollipop. The children love looking forward to Movie Fridays each week so we thought we would start another day theme they could look forward to but this one would have an academic focus. On Math Mondays the children will explore math concepts through books, flash cards, songs, and activities centered around counting, shapes, patterns, colors, and number recognition. Some of the things we will be counting are coins, unifix cubes, blocks, and anything else that catches their attention. So if you hear your child laughing and counting in a funny voice it is because the Count from Sesame Street is working his magic to make math fun.


We are also reaffirming the children’s color and shape skills and moving on to more complex geometric shapes. We are matching up the color with it’s written word so the children will recognize not only the color but the spelling of the word as we move toward reading. We did not know we had so many penguins in the daycare until the children rounded them up to count them. After counting penguins we started talking about where they live, what they eat, and the many different penguin types. One of the activities this week was working on the big wooden floor puzzle of the United States that Ralphie brought on New Toy Day. Day    January 20-24, 2014We added block buddies to the block building center for more imaginative play activities. The children have been busy building castles for the knights, dragons, and princesses, rescue vehicles for the firefighters, houses for the puppies, barns for the horses, and rocket ships for the astronauts to blast into space. They marched their painted foot onto the paper and surprise a perfect little penguin appeared  justas unique as they are. The children created a seal shaped book filled with interesting animal facts about how animals keepwarm in the cold.


Of all the animals they are learning about the children are fascinated with the Narwhal which iscalled the unicorn of the sea because of the long horn on it’s head. He worked his magic as he helped the children count flowers and see how high they could count!Hooray! The groundhog is one such animal who burrows into the ground to hide from the winter weather.  On Groundhog’s Day, February 2, Punxsutawney Phil, peeks out of his burrow to predict if he thinks winter is over or not. The children made their own groundhog puppets and colored a grassy burrow for them to peek in and out of just like Punxsutawney Phil. The children built and connected our many tunnels together to make their own burrows to hibernate in just like the groundhog. With all the climbing in and out of the tunnels it didn’t take long for the children to become tired out.
