Children's House Room 1 - 2013 - 2014
|Welcome to Children's House Room 1's class page!|
Our school nurse, Kathleen, visited our classroom to teach the children about hand washing. Kathleen and the children discussed that they should wash their hands after using the bathroom and before eating, for example. She put dirt on her hands, to represent germs, and then just rinsed her hands with water. The children noticed that her hands did not get very clean. Then she carefully used soap and washed her hands while the children counted slowly to twenty. Kathleen carefully dried her hands and each of her fingers. The children were interested to learn that their hands will be much cleaner after using soap and water, while washing for twenty seconds, and carefully drying.
|Baking Chocolate Chip Cookies|
On Monday Tiffany, Carolyn's mom, baked cookies with a few of the children. Everyone had huge smiles as they enjoyed the cookies after lunch!

|Roman's Dad Visited CH1|
Roman’s dad, Mike, visited our classroom today to share with us about Chinese Calligraphy. He showed special writing brushes and demonstrated how to hold them. He even wrote some words for us to see. When children made the connection between the writing Roman’s dad was showing us and the symbol for ‘Spring’ we cut out during Lunar New Year, Mike wrote ‘Spring’ for us in Chinese Calligraphy. Roman shared with us, a children’s book written in Chinese, that the children enjoyed looking at this week.
|Special Sound of the Week|
The Special Sound of the Week is /s/ like snake. We read a book about the seasons and the children listened for words in the book that begin with /s/. They found many words including; seasons, spring, summer, and snowman. The objects for this week's sound are snowflake, sled, sack and suitcase. How many things can you spy that begin with the /s/ sound?
