This week, we continued to work on the same subject : “la galette des rois”. This theme brings us many works opportunities. We made our “bonhomme” of January with his crown (he is the king). Following alignments in order on starting point, end point and course direction (exploring the world, locating in time and space). We drew snowflakes around the snowman, improving our fine motor skill again and again. We read a wonderful book : Ours blanc, it’s a book to be caressed. It’s the story of a little white bear who wants to discover the world. He meets polar animals and at the end, an Inuk, also known as Eskimo. So we created our own Inuk’s puppet.Finally this week, we worked on colors and numbers.
We continued working on our galette theme. We learned winter vocabulary for clothes: coat, scarf, gloves, mittens, boots, This lead to a study on cold and hot. What do we wear when it’s cold outside, when it’s hot ? What are the sports, activities we can play or do outside? What are the dangerous things we can not touch because they are hot? We manipulated the letters of the word : Hiver (winter). Progress was made in graphism with our lignes brisées (broken lines).
