Church tour

Fine motor skills involve the small muscles of the body that enable such functions as writing, grasping small objects, and fastening clothing.  When we refer to fine motor skills in the context of handwriting we are typically talking about the small muscles in the hands and fingers used for writing.

Peeling and sticking stickers improves the same muscles that students use for developing their pencil grasp.

This morning we used our fine motor skills to create artwork with stickers.

It was pretty wet on our playground so we didn't get out any cars but we still had fun running around and climbing on the the equipment

 We took  went on a tour of the church today. We started in the Church office and met Mrs. Wirkus, the church secretary.

Then we met Pastor Rouland and Pastor Reitz, they were both chatting in the office.
 We found out that the Pastors baptize people, marry people, and talk in front of church. (We even found out that Pastor Rouland baptized Nicholas and married his Mom and Dad!)
 We took a break in our tour to attend chapel led by Mr. Marolf.
 After chapel we continued our tour by check out the church balcony. It was really high
 We admired the pipes of the church organ.

Back for snack

During center time we continued our Starry Night pictures.

 We also worked on counting and identifying numbers by rolling the dice and then adding the same number of stars to our paper.

 A few of us finished up some things from earlier in the week too.
 We sang a funny song at the end of the day called, "I'm So Mad..." We had fun making mad growls, sad cries, and glad laughs.
