We added a touch of Christmas spirit to our exploration of shapes! The children added to Christmas tree designs/outlines by decorating, tracing or creating patterns with various small manipulatives & natural materials. We also explored some sports cards, noticing all of the letters & numbers each one had. The class also used tremendous teamwork with both building a structure outside and deconstructing a cardboard box in the classroom. Oh, the magic of a simple, empty cardboard box!
St. Mary’s believes that all children have the right to the highest quality early childhood education. The benefits of the child’s involvement in a high quality program are proven. It is our intention that all children and families who walk through our doors experience the best educational experience possible.
