We have a post office set up in our dramatic play area and have fun being the postal workers and the customers.
Today we read "Never Mail an Elephant" by Mike Thaler
We asked the children if they have the letter F in their name? Our letter this week is the letter F.
We fingerpainted on bubble wrap with red and white finger paint. They turned into the color pink.
We painted on a fish shape with rollers that have wavy lines on them.
We did "Can you leap like a frog?", "Five fish swimming in the sea", and "Little fish, let's go swimming"
We did a 5 little letters rhyme, and we looked at objects that start with the letter F. We thought of words that start with the letter too.
We read "Tortoise brings the mail" by Dee Lillegard
We used Dab a doo painters to make a negative image. We gave the children paper that had a heart shape placed on top. The children used dab a dot painters to cover the paper. It created a heart shape design and then when you remove the heart paper, it makes a negative heart shape image.
We had heart shapes with tissue and glue at the easel.
We did letter R activities.
We did The February Song, Snowman Pokey, and 5 little hearts for music today.
We had pink, red and purple objects and gems in the sensory table with water for they children to explore.
Our dramatic corner is set up as a post office. The children are enjoying playing postal worker and customer.
Oak Room: Pre- K class
We read "I.Q. goes to the library" by Mary Ann Fraser and "Seal's Silly Sandwich" by Dorothy Sklar
Our letter this week is S and we drew pictures and wrote words in our journal that begin with the letter S.
We are starting to do an estimating jar each Wednesday and today was alphabet blocks. This activity helps children learn to look at something and make a "rough estimate" of how much is in there. They usually start out with huge number guesses, and as the weeks go by, they will get closer in their estimates.
We did Bean Bag boogie, and the letter sounds song for music time.
Stay and Play:
We read "Owl Moon" by Jane Yolan today.
We made a paper plate heart, we gave the children a paper plate with a heart cut out of the middle. The children were given tissue paper and colored glue and could either scrunch the tissue paper up or glue it on flat.
We did Brown Bear, Brown Bear, White snowman and Stomp, stomp clap for music today.
