Jumping Through January in Pre-K 1!
We saw a little bit of everything weather-wise at recess this week. Mild temperatures, a sun shower and then snow today. Please make sure that you send mittens and a hat each day with your child.
We squeezed a lot into our four day week. You may have heard, our Reading Street Book this week was Miss Mary Mack by Mary Ann Hoberman & Nadine Bernard Westcott. This sing along book was a hit! The children also learned the clapping game to go along with this rhyme. Today we broke into pairs and practiced it. The children were asking if we could do it again so I said we could do it next week too.
Our Reading Street Song was It's Amazing. Our vocabulary words were fell, fence, jumped, people, screamed, and yard.
Our Letter of the Week was D. Our song was Did Old Dandy Dog Dig in the Dirt?
We also read The Hat by Jan Brett and The Snowy, Blowy Winter by Bob Raczka.
Mr. G came in to visit us today. He read There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed The ABC's by Lucille Colandro. The children LOVE when Mr. G comes to see us and he was very impressed with the words the children came up with for each letter of the alphabet.
Other activities in our classroom this week were:
Discovery: Review of our five senses. The children were challenged to sort objects into each of the five senses.
Project Table: D is for Dog......the children could make a dog out of the letter D.
Dinosaur rubbing plates.
Art Easel: Crayons, paper and dinosaur stickers.
Math Table: Numbered Dinosaur Lacing Cards
Listening Center: How Do Dinosaurs Go To School by Jane Yolen.
The children have been having fun learning to play Jacks. They have been practicing bouncing and catching the ball a lot. They are doing a great job of sharing and explaining the game to friends who have been absent.
Looking ahead our Letter of the Week will be P. Show & Tell will be on Wednesday.
Valentine's Day Info ❤
We will be celebrating Valentine's Day at school on Tuesday, February 14th. We will be exchanging valentines in our classroom. We have 10 children in our class. As far as delivering cards it is easiest if you send in the valentines just signed by who it is from and leave the "to" blank. We are a nut-free school and are asking that food and candy not be sent with the valentines. Stickers, tattoos, pencils, etc. are a good alternative if you would like.
Also, please send in a Valentine mailbox for your child. The children can make this out of a box (tissue box/shoebox) or bag. Please make sure to put your child's name on their mailbox. Feel free to even put their picture on it. Have fun making it!
Have a great weekend!
