Here's some pictures from the past week...
(working in matching upper and lowercase letters)
(fine motor activity using tiny stickers)
For this activity, the children traced each letter of the alphabet with a Q-tip dipped in paint.
Taking a quick story break!
In small groups last week, the 4s worked on their color words.
Although it seems counterintuitive, it is actually not essential that children know all their letters or sounds before they start "reading". We practice color words to help build confidence and get kids used to reading left to right. Color words can be used in the everyday life of a preschooler, so they offer a nice place to start.
Tuesday was gummy bear day. We sang the gummy bear song, which goes like this:
(To the tune of "Six Little Ducks that I Once Knew")
Down at the candy store, what did I see?
Five little gummy bears smiling at me. (Hold up 5 fingers.)
Along came (child’s name) with a penny one day.
They bought a (color) one and took it away.
Here, we did an experiment with gummy bears. We placed the bears in different liquids to see what would happen.
The bear in vinegar started to disappear more quickly than the rest.
Miss T is explaining how to use a level.
Today, we tried an experiment to see how rain works. (This goes along with our Noah's Ark theme this week.)
