As well this week we were learning about dental health and keeping those sugar bugs away from our teeth! We need to brush 2 times a day for at least 2 minutes. They also know we need to floss at least once a day. We had "patients" come in this week (paper plate mouths with marshmallows. These marshmallow teeth patients had a lot of cavities that my 4K friends had to get rid of. The students were given some tooth brushes and a small pack of tooth paste. They had to brush those "teeth" the best they could to get those cavities off. They were really enjoying this activity and at some points they were being pretty loud with their patients. So I stopped them and asked - when you are at the dentist, do they yell at you? No, so you need to be nice and quiet to your patients now. Lets just say it smelled a lot like minty freshness in our room for the rest of the day. On Friday we after all week of learning about keeping our teeth happy and healthy, what kind of foods to eat, etc we created "happy healthy teeth".
We have been working so hard to write simple sentences using the sight words we know and sounding out new words. We have been continuing to work on our phone numbers and addresses. One of our 4K friends was really funny when remembering hers. She was so excited that she knew it and could remember it that she wanted to go tell Mr. B. He came out and asked her what she just told him and she said, "I told him my password, (then told us her phone number)." So funny what they call their phone numbers! So proud of these friends here, they are still growing and are so smart! :) As well we are doing really well with our letter Uu!
On Friday, we had our Valentine's Day celebration! THANK YOU so much to all families for bringing valentines for all friends and bringing some treats for all to share! We really enjoyed celebrating Valentine's day as a 4K family! <3 Happy Valentine's Day on Sunday! Hope you all had a great weekend! :)
