Saying Good Bye to March in 5 Day Pre-K!

Hi Everyone,


We were so lucky to have a visit from Author Brielle Lilygarten on Monday. She read both of the books she has written: Fishy, Fishy & Fishy, Fishy Goes to School. The children then made a fish craft with her. She even sent home goodie bags!


Mrs. Lay read The Berenstain Bears and the Truth and the Berenstain Bears Get The Gimmies.

We began a new Reading Street Unit, Who Lives Here? Our first book in this unit was Sweet Dreams, How Animals Sleep by Kimiko Kajikawa. "In rhythmic words and affecting pictures, this inviting picture book introduces young children to a world of sleeping creatures. Some animals, like bats, sleep upside down, while others like koalas and lions, snore up in the trees."  We talked about how and where the different animals sleep. And where and how we all sleep too. The children enjoyed this book so much. Today as we read it, I would name the animal and the children would show how it sleeps before I actually showed the picture in the book.


Our Reading Street Song was Where Are You Sleeping?  The vocabulary words this week were doze, float, hang, koalas, rest and sloths. 

We also read Wake Up It's Spring by Lisa Campbell Ernst.


Our Letter of the Week was N. Our Letter Sound Song was On a November, Night, Night, Night.       


Art Easel: We had black paper and glitter chalk to use. We ended the week with stencils the children could put on their paper.      

Project Table: N is for Nest....materials to make a nest. Cute birds and eggs were added.

White paper and water colors were available to use too.

Sensory Table:  Mulch, dinosaurs and wood blocks

Play-doh: Flower garden pieces and green playdoh

Listening Center: The Easter Bunny Is Missing! by Steve Metzger.

Math Table:  Balance Beans-a seesaw logic game

Discovery Table:  Microscopes and a real birds nest to check out with magnifying glasses. 


We will be reviewing letters M & N next week. For Show & Tell on Wednesday, please have your child choose one item that begins with either M or N.


Have a wonderful weekend!


Sincerely,

Mrs. Kelley
