Week 6 in Pre-K 2
Hello Pre K Families,
We only had 3 days this week, but we were very busy! We had indoor recess Tuesday, but did take a few quicks laps around the playground and dodged the raindrops! The children had a lot of fun raking leaves on our playground today.
We read – How the Crayons saved the Unicorn.
“A shy unicorn has a hard time making friends. In his sadness, his colors start to fade away until they are gone completely. Worrying that he may never get back his colors or make true friends, the unicorn finds himself lost and alone. It is not until he comes across a group of spunky crayons that his world changes. The crayons band together to help their new friend get back his colors, and in the process play and have fun. The crayons’ helping generosity and friendship may just be what the unicorn has been missing!”
We also read Creepy Carrots. Jasper Rabbit loves carrots—especially Crackenhopper Field carrots. He eats them on the way to school. He eats them going to Little League. He eats them walking home. Until the day the carrots start following him...or are they?
Celebrated artist Peter Brown’s stylish illustrations pair perfectly with Aaron Reynold’s text in this hilarious picture book that shows it’s all fun and games…until you get too greedy.
Letter of the week next week is H, show and tell for letter H on Tuesday.
This is what is going on in our centers!
Dramatic Play- There is a Pumpkin and Apple stand this month. This has been a very busy center and we have a waiting list each day!
Art Easel- Fall Dot paintings.
Math Center- There was a lot of counting going on this week at the math table. I placed small pumpkins, labeled with numbers, the children rolled dice to see how many leafs to put on each pumpkin.
Discovery Table- More Living and Non Living classification!
Art Table- We made tissue paper pumpkins to hang in a window.
The children also painted 5 Little Pumpkins sitting on a gate.
We sang our 5 Little Pumpkins on a gate song and Way up high in the Apple Tree song.
Have a great weekend!
