Mixed-up Chameleons News-(Kindergarten Preparation Class)- Today we practiced learning the days of the week and brainstormed words that started with the letter “N”. We also had preschool pals demonstrate behaviors form the “HOW I ACT” chart. We worked hard on our small motor skills by making a community helper bear and worked on writing. We also learned more about numbers, counting and specifically, the number “5”. Next week we will take a deeper look at what the people do in our neighborhood and focus on occupations.
Very Hungry Caterpillar and Very Busy Spider News: Happy New Year! With our short week, we were able to get new seats on the rainbow rug, review our “How I Act” chart and introduce the letter “N for Neighborhood”. We also read the book “Month by Month, A Year Goes Round” by Carol Diggory Shields and reviewed the passage of time through days, weeks, months and years.
Friday Enrichment News: We have started our winter unit. The children got to make snowmen out of snow (glue and shaving cream). They are very abstract! This week we will talk about the letter N and continue learning about winter. The children will work on a sparkly snow picture using salt and chalk, will go on a snowball hunt and hear a story about a REALLY big snowball!
Brown Bear/Polar Bear News: It is time for winter fun. Be on the look out for winter themed art projects. The kids will be creating a picture out of snow (which is really shaving cream and glue.) Our feltboard story is about 5 cookies that get eaten one by one by a hungry child. Our songs all revolve around snow. We are singing “I’m a Little Snowman,” “Dancing Snowflakes,” and “Sledding.” We are up to the letter L and the shape next week will be an oval.
