Our theme will continue to be the holidays for the next week and a half. We are doing well learning our vocabulary and using it. We are reading many stories about the holidays. Our letter of the week will be Ll. We will not do a new letter next week. Our fine motor skill will be pinching tissue paper to create various projects. We will continue to review our colors. We are really having fun learning them. We will not be doing a gross motor activity this week, instead we will be making cookies.
In the past Emily had a lot of anxiety over attending school assembly’s. A couple of times she couldn’t tolerate them at all. A couple of times, the teacher/aides decided to bring Emily in once the assembly had already started …. in the hopes the music would keep her attention and distract her from being so anxious.
We went to the assembly. I went to put her chair down and then we would go for a simple walk like always. Well, she sat down and waited 10 minutes as all the classes showed up. Emily surprised me! I couldn’t believe it. She sat down and smiled during the whole wait time and show. She did GREAT!!!!!!! Miss Jen
