We The People of The Wood Acres School! 🇺🇸
Wood Acres families,
We hope you enjoyed your weekend. As you all know Dorian has affected many people. If you are or know of anyone who is, we would like to send out deepest thoughts.
This week we will work on shapes. (circle square stars) Shapes here, shapes there, shapes are everywhere!
To introduce the shape “circle”. For fine motor skills, we will be working on strengthening our pencil grip by tracing circles with a crayon. For creativity, we will make bird feeders out of pipe cleaners and Cheerios.
To introduce the shape “square”, we will work on our fine motor skills by cutting squares with scissors. For creativity, your creativity little one will make a square person out of construction paper.
To introduce the shape “star”, we will be discussing the stars on our the American flag and create a star college to hang in our windows to bring in our celebration of Constitution day.
For review on Friday for, we will play hide and seek the shape. Mrs. Thomas and I will hide these shapes throughout our campus quad and encourage the child to seek out the shapes. What a busy little bee your child will be!
