Week 24 Letter Kk, star word 'here', Dental Health!

Family Fun Update...
yep, another candle light hike~the grand finale of the season!  
It was at Gooseberry Falls and it really is the most beautiful display of all!
Maeve was able to join us, yay!
Saturday it was warmish on the North Shore,
Sunday was not so much!
(notice the difference in our headwear!)
We really enjoy this winter activity,
the are free and fun and there were some local ones.  Maybe you could check it out next winter?

 Okay, back to our regularly scheduled program...
On Monday we wrapped up
America the Beautiful!

 We painted flags using our hands as the brush!

We also painted 
American flags!
We took a lot of time to notice how the blue field takes up a full quarter of the flag, how the stripes line up, and how the stars are arranged.
 The kiddos did a very nice job!

Here is our USA table...lots of fun items here to explore!

We ended with designing our own flag to represent our family and ourselves!

Tuesday we began our dental health unit!
 We learned we have 20 teeth 
(more or less!)

Tuesday's centers were:

We've been playing a fun game as a whole group.

Here's our graph about missing teeth.
We have a young class this year and this shows it in tooth loss! Hang in there, Kiddos!
Your day is coming!

Wednesday the kids had to show me how to brush and floss using our models!
