July was a lot of fun for our class as we have been exploring and talking about zoo animals! We have had a blast reading Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear; Dear Zoo; and Baby Zoo Animals. Our children love to make the noise of whatever animal we read out, but I think a class favorite is the lion. We have some pretty good class roars that go on! We have also had some pretty good monkey impressions, too!
We also have been listening to the songs called “Animal Action” in which all of us have to act like whatever animal the song says; it is a current favorite of T1!
Some fun art we have done over the month is letting the kids take our animal toys such as our lion and elephant and dip their feet in paint to make Animals Tracks. It is so neat to watch the children make their own tracks and patterns.
Another fun activity we have started doing is a weekly Yoga time for the kids to stretch and breathe. Our kids laughed and thought it was the best time to stretch like a cat and lay like a cobra. We are doing Yoga on Wednesdays at 9:30 am; we would love for our parents or grandparents to join in if possible!
Remember that we would love to have volunteers come and spend time in class with us. Whether it’s painting a picture or reading a book with the class, we would love to have you!
