The Red Room class learned about different sports, such as baseball, soccer, tennis and basketball. We focused on learning and practicing baseball techniques. Our class discussed the roles of a batter, pitcher, and catcher. The pitcher throws the ball. The batter hits the ball with a baseball bat. The catcher waits behind the batter and catches the ball that the batter does not hit. The children also practiced playing tennis by learning to hit the tennis ball with their racket.
The children enjoyed the opportunity to dress-up in fun ways, to be silly and creative each day. On sports day, the children had so much fun doing drills and playing different sports activities at Teardrop Park.
The letter of the week was letter /W/. We learned how to pronounce the sound and the words that begin with that letter. As a literacy activity, the children outlined the letter /W/ by coloring in and gluing on pictures of watermelons. Letter /W/ is for watermelon, wolf, and wagon.
