We had a great first week! What a great group of children!
Next week we are going to:
*Make apple sauce from the apples in our apple tree.
*Taste different color apples and graph which apples we like best.
*Learn and practice using scissors.
Ten Apples up on Top by Doctor Suess and tell Goldilocks and The Three Little Bears story.
Please get your child a pair of child-safe scissors to practice using:
Select Good Scissors. Scissors come in a variety of sizes, so search for a pair that fits your child’s hand. For an inexperienced cutter, select scissors with a blunt point, and give them a trial run to make sure the blades are sharp enough for cutting. Dull scissors can fold the paper instead of cutting it.
Cutting with scissors requires the skill of hand separation, which is the ability to use the thumb, index, and middle fingers separately from the pinkie and ring fingers. This can be challenging for a youngster with small hands. Although many 3- or 4-year-olds have the skills needed to snip and cut, scissor skills are not fully developed until around age 6.
Please feel free to e-mail me or talk with me after school with any concerns or questions you have about school and/or your child.
Have a wonderful weekend!
