Week 10 in Pre-K 1
You may have heard the exciting news! We have a new friend in our class. Welcome to Keira & Family!
We had a great week at school. Superhero Day was a big hit on Tuesday! We were able to get out for recess each day except for today. The children have been having a lot of fun using the hula hoops as butterfly wings. They have been "flying" around our playground and then meeting on the play structure to have "butterfly meetings". Today, due to the rain, we did an indoor obstacle course, musical chairs, red light, green light & Simon Says.
Our Reading Street book this week was another book from our Transportation Unit. Our story was My Truck Is Stuck! by Kevin Lewis. We talked about what happened in the beginning, middle and at the end of the story.
Our Reading Street song was Country Road. Our vocabulary words were dump truck, road, tug, tow truck, stuck and load.
Our Letter of the Week was C. Our song was Can You Sit on the Cot? We talked about how making C strokes will help us to draw circles and make other letters too. These letters are O, Q, G & S. The children were very excited to meet the Magic C Bunny. We practiced making the letter C in the air and sang along to the Magic C Song with the bunny.
We listened to Pete The Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons by Eric Litwin and read Give Thanks For Each Day by Steve Metzger.
Other Activities included:
Math Table: Pattern cards and Duplo Legos
Art Easel: Cloud picture-cotton balls to stretch and glue along with markers to make a picture
Pete the Cat picture and circle stickers-decorate Pete and add groovy buttons to it
Project Table: C is for CONTINUED....one last day of our unicorn craft from Friday :)
Turkey Craft-cardboard roll to decorate with felt pieces to make a turkey
C is for Caterpillar Craft...gluing pieces on Letter C to make a caterpillar
Coffee Filter Turkey-this was very popular! The children painted a clothes pin. Then they colored on a coffee filter with markers. Next, they sprayed the filter with water & there was much excitement watching what happened. The following day they clipped the clothes pin to the filter and glued on parts to make a turkey face.
Discovery Table: Discovery Bottles
Looking ahead to next week our Letter of the Week will be O. Show & Tell will be on Wednesday. Please send in one item that begins with this letter.
Have a great weekend!
