Hello, Everyone! Below is a summary of the busy day my little ones had this past Wednesday:
This week, we have been learning about reptiles and amphibians, and we began our week's lesson with a categorizing activity that we completed as a group during circle time. As we all placed our animals in the right groups, we discovered that there are clear differences between amphibians and reptiles:
- Reptiles have scaly, dry skin while amphibians have smooth, moist skin.
- Reptiles live on land only while amphibians live on land and water.
Later, my students learned, step by step, how to draw both a frog and a snake. I then gave them the opportunity to add details to their pictures, such as assorted shapes and colors on their snakes' scaly skin to all background essentials (sun, clouds, water, etc).
I absolutely love all of my students' froggy and snake masterpieces! Even at the preschool level, they are each developing their own unique artistic styles!
Another successful school day is now in the books for Mitchell Montessori School!
