We had a great week in our classroom!
We started a new Reading Street Unit called Going Places. Our book this week was The Seals on the Bus by Lenny Hort. "Two children and their parents board a city bus on their way to a party. At the next stop, who should get on but a group of seals who holler "errp, errp, errp" at the top of their lungs. Each time the bus stops a new kind of animal joins the passengers". The children loved it! Make sure to ask them about the animals that boarded the bus and what ends up happening that causes the people to say "help, help, help". Our Reading Street song was Monkeys on the Bus. Vocabulary words we talked about were bus, monkeys, party, seals, town and vipers.
Our Letter of the Week was I. Our song was Wriggly, Wiggly Izzy Fish.
We read I'm Me by Sarah Sheridan and listened to the story, The Legend of Spookley The Square Pumpkin.
Other activities included:
Math Table: Puzzle Counting Pegboards
Art Easel: Color Mixing-red and yellow paint was mixed to make an orange pumpkin.
Happy Harvest Pumpkins that the children could decorate
Project Table: Leaf Suncatcher....there were different shape leaves to choose from. The children would cover the contact paper with tissue paper.
Inch Worm Project-lacing beads on a pipe cleaner, adding google eyes and bending pipe cleaner to make their worm crawl. This was very popular!
Listening Center: Click Clack Boo by Doreen Cronin
Discovery Table: Nature Investigation...different leaves, tree bark, acorns, pine cones and rock Building with candy corn and candy pumpkins. Houses, robots, lollipops were just some of the creations made.
Community Helpers this week were Firefighter Tim on Wednesday and Firefighter Tom (Jackson's Dad) today.
Mr. G was in today to visit. He read Room On The Broom by Julia Donaldson to us.
Looking ahead to next week, our letter will be U.
Have a great weekend!
