Calendar:   Discussed the date in English and Spanish. Stephenye is the new calendar girl for this week but she wasn’t here yet so Grady put the numbers on the calendar, discussed the weather and found the day of the week in Spanish. Grady was the teacher and reviewed our numbers, sight words, Spanish and Sign Language.  

Fun Facts/Brainstorming:  Discussed:  Martin Luther King, Jr. day.  We read the Story about Martin Luther King, Jr. and discussed while we read. Discussed:  What to do to promote peace (no fighting)?  

Social Studies: Discussed: How do you look like someone else you know and how are you different from that person? We looked through the photos of people. We discussed the differences and similarities in those people.  The children will paint on plates to mix colors and make a different color and then make a face in the paint.  To show the different Hues of us!

Physical Development: Discussed: What different ways can you march? Invited children to march around the room and explore various ways to move their legs, arms, heads and bodies as they march.  I made a path through the room with footprints. I then picked a child to discuss something they wanted and could do a peaceful March to get it.  They wanted Xbox, cheese puffs and a puppy.

Social and Emotional Development: Discussed: What is your favorite food to share with someone?

Language and Literacy:  Discussed: What do you really wish could happen? Invited children to lie on their backs and close their eyes as they think about the things they would like to happen. What do they see in their minds? Could these things really happen?  They will put their dreams on paper in afternoon centers.

Afternoon Centers:   Center 1-  Little People  Center 2- Children were each given a paper plate and mixed different colors to see what other colors they could make. They then drew a face on their paper plates. Center 3-  The children took a piece of paper and wrote, “I have a Dream” on it they then drew a picture or finished that with words about what they would like to see happen in the world.
