This was the first week that we began to delve into our newest thematic unit-Westward Expansion. We made predictions about what we might want to take with us as we travel across the country. We also explored life at that time, common objects, and the pioneer experience through our dramatic play centers. Students have become so creative as they try out these new centers.
In P.E. we have started a new unit-juggling! We began with scarves and bean bags. This is another way for us to incorporate our conceptual lens-balance-into our day to day activities. Although it is challenging, it sure is fun!
Hope you have a great week!
