Topic of the Week

  Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

This week the children learned all about Dr. Seuss. We read many fun stories written by Dr. Seuss at group time.

During art the children were very creative. They painted plates yellow one day and glued pom poms onto the plates the next to represent the book Put Me In The Zoo.  The children also painted a negative space painting with red and white to represent Cat In The Hat. The favorite art activity of the week was painting with socks on their hands that represented Fox In Socks.

In the sensory table the children played with green playdoh, colored noodles, sand and plastic eggs, and rainbow oobleck. The children love exploring different textures. The highlight of the week was colored shaving cream.

Tip of the Week

History Comes Alive

Are you visiting older friends or relatives soon? Ask them to show your child some of their treasures from long ago. Examples: a photograph, a typewriter, a baseball glove, an old piece of furniture. Then, they can tell your child the stories behind those items.

Did You Know?

At GBN, we pride ourselves on documenting children’s learning. This is why we call our hallway boards, documentation boards rather than bulletin boards.

Next Week: Women In History

Have a great weekend!
