Wrapping up September in Pre-K 1!
Another great week! The days are going by very quickly in our classroom. Everyone is very busy during Center Time each day. You may have heard that we did Apple Tasting at our Discovery Table this week. Each child had an opportunity to come over with me and sample a red, green and yellow apple. They then voted on what their favorite was. I attached a picture of the chart so you can see the results (it is also hanging on our classroom door)!
Our Letter of the Week was F. The children are working really hard at the letter sounds. Our list of words that began with F was quite long. Our song this week was Five Fat Cats.
This week's Reading Street book was We Need Construction Workers by Lisa Trumbauer. "Simple text and photographs present construction workers (both male and female) and their role in the community". Our song to go along with our book was We Are Builders. Our Amazing Words were buildings, hammers, lumber, pound, wear (hard hats, tool belts, work boots) and community.
The other books we read this week were Big Machines! Big Buildings! by Kevin Lewis and An Apple a Day by Melvin Berger. We listened to Froggy Builds a Treehouse by Jonathan London (make sure to ask what Froggy likes to have on his pizza).
Our Centers this week:
Writing Table: Doodle Boards, F Booklets & F Worksheets
Discovery Table: Parts of an Apple worksheet, Apple Tasting & magna tiles
Math Table: Numbered Pegboards. The children are doing a great job identifying numbers. The pegboards fit together like pieces of a puzzle.
Art Easel: Painting on foil
Painting an apple
Project Table: Flamingo Craft...the children worked hard ripping construction paper for the body.
Hard Hat....lots of different stickers to use, along with washi tape to decorate. The children were very
excited to make their hat!
Fox Craft...pieces were glued on paper to create the letter F & turn it into a fox
F is for feather....white letter F was covered with beautiful colorful feathers.
Looking ahead our Letter of the Week next week will be E. Show & Tell will be on Wednesday.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
