Mrs. Terranova’s Two Year Olds

Mrs. Terranova February

Two Year Olds

It is hard to believe that 2018 is already upon us!  December was filled with lots of holiday crafts, fun parties, and our Christmas program which was a success!!  We have begun our discussion on shapes and colors!  Each week will be a new color and shape!

We talked about the shape circle and color blue!  We painted on a circle with blue paint.  We searched the classroom looking for a circle object to paint with!  We thought painting with cups would make the perfect circle! We also glued different shades of blue circles in a gumball machine! We made blue slime!  Not sure why we thought this would be an easy project. But the children had fun and that’s all that matters!  We also painted as a group, on a large circle cut out with blue paint!  Painting as a group helps with self-esteem, creativity, builds friendships, and shows creative expression!    We sang a song about circles and how we can tell it’s a circle.

This is a circle, this is a circle

How can you tell, how can you tell?

It goes round and round

Not end to be found

It’s a CIRCLE, it’s a CIRCLE

Next, we tackled color orange and shape square!  We glued tiny orange squares onto a larger square cut out!  This is a great way to work on our fine motor skills.  We used Q-tips to dip in glue and place on square paper!  We placed orange squares onto contact paper!  We also used our fine motor skills while playing with orange playdoh and orange cookie cutters.  We painted a large square as a group with orange paint!  We all used different utensils to see all the unique shapes each made.  We sang,

This is a square, this is a square

How can you tell, how can you tell?

It has 4 sides, equal on the sides

It’s a SQUARE, it’s a SQUARE!

Next month, we will continue to talk about different shapes and colors!  We also will have our Valentines party’s which will be held on February 13th and 14th!  Mrs. Blohm will be in contact with you to help with bringing in items for that!  If you would like to provide valentine’s cards for students that will be handed out during parties, please send in 13 cards with your child’s name but no names on the envelope!  Conference time again!  Please sign up for a conference that are held on February 15th and 16th!!
