Today we started building towers with blocks. When we were all gathered we started calendar time with our Learning Box Question: "What are healthy things you can do for your body?"
After calendar, we read My Amazing Body by Pat Thomas. We learned about all the amazing things our body can do like, think better than a computer and move better than a robot. Then we felt our heart beats, got up and exercised, then felt our heart beats again. The kids saw how exercise makes your heart beat faster. And we sang:
The Letter Xx
to the tune of Frere Jacques
The letter X. The letter X. (make ASL sign for letter, showing one hand then the other)
Has a sound. Has a sound. (bring 1 hand to ear and then the other hand to the other ear)
What sound do you make? What sound do you make? (palms facing up, shrug shoulders)
/ks/ /ks/ /ks/! /ks/ /ks/ /ks/! (Make ASL sign for letter, move hand forward and backward for each sound)
I'm sorry! My camera's battery ran out! :( No pictures today. I'll take a picture of our food poster and post it here for you too see!
