Hard at Work

The kids have been working so hard this spring.  I love having the parents see some of the things that we are up to at Sunshine Mountain.  The kids are very busy with our equipment.  

Here are some friends that are matching.  It's amazing how they are even able to match the words.  If they do a matching, they get a stamp.  They are highly motivated by the stamps.  :)


This little boy is matching color words.


Arctic animals that live in the water and on land

Ring sizes

Sandpaper numbers with chips

Many different ways to work on their small motor skills.  

This little girl is using tongs to put color bears in the right color cup.


Here she is sewing! :) 



Learning about color mixing
Here is a little boy mixing blue and yellow to make green.  They used eye droppers to pick up the water.  Another way to use their fine motor skills.

 She is really concentrating!

Sponging-they love working with water

February

WOW!!  We have had a busy February.  We've been talking about the seasons, weather and Valentine's Day. 

We learned a song about the weather.  




We worked on our letters today while we took attendance.  When their name was called, they used the pointer to find the letter the teacher said.  

Our classes are working hard on cutting.  We are practicing cutting with our thumbs pointed up.  Here we are cutting our names into a puzzle.








The kids love painting at the easel.  We painted inside a heart using 2 colors.




Heart numbers 1-10
