This week we begin studying Living/Non-Living.  We study this by discussing what is alive (trees, people, deer - we saw 2 today!- plants, fish etc...) and what is not alive (houses, clothes, rubber bands...).  Today we gave a small group lesson where after discussing the principles of what is alive or not alive, they placed necklaces or labels on people/plants/objects in the classroom. 
Although this is difficult to see, the fish had a LIVING card placed near the tank.

The children also gave necklaces to people and plants who were living too.  They gave themselves necklaces as they realized, "I am living!!"
Tomorrow we will also be presenting the children with living/non-living picture cards to classify.  Ask you child if they know what is living or not living in your home.
