Week 5 in Pre-K 1
What a week we have had! Our Pretend Center has been changed over for the month of October to a Construction Site. This has been a very popular spot this week! The children have been very busy measuring and building. We have styrofoam they have been working hard to put screws in and then using their screw driver to remove them. They also worked to turn a box into a car complete with wheels, a steering wheel and a trunk! There is a picture attached.
This week's Reading Street book was Muncha! Muncha! Muncha! by Candace Flemming. "Tippy, Tippy, Tippy, Pat!
That's the sound three hungry bunnies make when the sun goes down and the moon comes up and Mr. McGreely's garden smells yum, yum, yummy. While he's dreaming of his mouth-watering carrots, the bunnies are diving over fences and swimming trenches to get the veggies first!
Hammer, hammer, hammer, Saw!
That's the sound Mr. McGreely makes when the sun comes up and the moon goes down and he sees what those twitch-whiskers have done....Nibbled leaves! Empty stalks! Mr. McGreely will build something bigger and better, sure to keep even pesky puff-tails away.
Children will cheer for the bunnies -- or for Mr. McGreely -- as they delight in Candace Fleming's clever sound effects and G. Brian Karas's vibrant, funny illustrations". Make sure to ask what Mr. McGreely built to keep the bunnies out and how they still got in!
The other books we read this week were Leaf Trouble by Jonathan Emmett and Sixteen Runaway Pumpkins by Dianne Ochiltree.
Our Centers this week:
