  1. Early Childhood Westfield School Winthrop Harbor November 11, 2011 Volume 2, Issue 11 Highlights of our week… This week we continued our Down on the Farm themeWe learned that cows and pigs live on the farm, too! We all practiced the sounds these animals make and learned about their body parts. During our art time, we painted a female cow and used our hand die cut as the udders. We learned that cows give milk and that the farmer uses a machine attached to the udder to extract the milk. We also learned that cows eat hay, oats, and cud! Another of our art activities was painting a pig. We learned that males and females have different names, but they all enjoy rolling around in the mud! One of our math activities included counting pennies and adding them to our piggy banks. The children had to pick a card, identify the number, and then count out that many pennies! This is a great activity to do at home! Counting objects is great practice for 1:1 correspondence! Another math activity included sorting farm animals by color and by type. We had 6 different colors of animals and 6 different types of animals. This is great reinforcement for color and kinds of animals. We will continue to explore sorting throughout the year! You can continue to talk about farm animals and the sounds they make, at home as reinforcement! Letter C… This week we introduced the letter C. This was an exciting letter for the children because so many things start with this letter: cookies, cat, candy! We practiced the letter c sound – just the hard c, as in the words above. We practiced writing our upper and lower case C’s and talked about how they both start at the top, and one is big and one is little. You could practice these at home! Parent Involvement Day…. Mark your calendars…Friday, December 2nd! More information to come! Important Dates….
