We are so excited to start the school year!! The kids are doing a great job getting adjusted to Sunshine Mountain! A big thank you to our parents for setting such a positive attitude towards school. It really shows with the kids, they are so eager to learn. Our orientation days are going wonderfully. It really helps having half the class for an hour and 15 minutes. Here are a few things we worked on this week.
When we work on the floor, we always use a carpet mat. The kids learned how to stretch their arms as far as they could, bend down and carry their carpet mat to a spot on the rug and gently set it down.
|We practiced walking around the carpet mats.|
Mrs. Betko gave a lesson on stringing beads.
Here is one of our friends working with the beads. She has grouped them into colors and is now stringing them.
Here we are working on stacking cups. At home we might get to knock them over but at school we take them down carefully! :)
Here we are on the first day working hard!
We had a great first day! It went by fast and we can't wait for the next time we are together!
