Learning Centers

This week our learning center activities included: recognizing letters Tt-Zz compound words, rhyming word pairs, making sets to five, number puzzles, and math and reading iPad apps!

The children enjoy center time and like to explore all different subjects with their group. They get to discuss what they are learning, ask questions, and explain their findings!

Mrs. Williams (our student teacher) and I enjoy facilitating the centers and like to have the children lead their learning while at each center!

Community Helper's Field Trip

On Friday, we took a trip around the community to the Police Station, Fire Department, and the Post Office! We had so much fun learning about what does on at each place! The children especially loved learning about how the police officers snd firefighters keep us safe! They also had lots of questions for the post master about how our mail gets to our homes!

We had such a great time! I can't wait for our next field trip!
