Spiders and Bats, Oh My!

We had a blast this week learning about spiders and bats! We learned big vocabulary words, e.g., echolocation, mammals, nocturnal, and arachnid to name a few! We graphed, painted paints and made our own “Great 8 Spiders”! We had oral language practice during large group and even spun our very own spider web! We have such an awesome time in Pre-K!

First Week of Pre-K

We finished our first week of Pre-K and my Pre-k students are already looking like pros. We had a lot of fun this week with “The Kissing Hand” through art, math, literacy and writing activities! I have posted a few pics from our week!

Spring is in the Air…Finally!

The Pre-K Room has been overly excited to delve right into all things Spring! My students have been making amazing strides in areas of Reading, Writing and Math!!! Let’s not forget Science…we’ve found this to be one of our favorite subjects in Pre-K!

We recently started incubating chicken eggs. We are so excited about hatching baby chicks! We have been counting down the days till they hatch!

No matter what we are learning we are enjoying the exploration of all things whether through our sensory play, journaling, oral language, reading, math and science activities and/or social studies!

We are already into our last month of school! This year has flown by but we are going to make the best of our last month together with field trips, parties, picnics, and graduation!

Community Helpers

In the Pre-K room we have spent a couple of weeks discussing the many helpers within a community. We learned about many different occupations and how they all work together to build a strong community.

One of our ‘most loved’ experiments from “Community Helpers Week” was when we made a stethoscope using electrical tape, a balloon, plastic tubing and funnels. We had so much fun getting our heart to beat fast and then listening for our stethoscopes to come to life! We do some amazingly fun things in Pre-K!

Dr. Seuss on the Loose!

We had so much celebrating Dr. Seuss with our themed days! We did lots of rhyming with both real words and silly made up words!

Did we have fun? Well, what did we do? We rhymed, did crafts and science experiments too!! We dressed up and dressed down…we wore our upside down frowns!

Our Pre-K room is so much fun and fun is good!!!

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!!

The preschoolers celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday in many ways. We enjoyed reading many of his stories and making Dr. Seuss art. We charted our likes and dislikes on our “Would you like green eggs?” chart, (I’m surprised that so many of the children would like green eggs!) The preschoolers also enjoyed identifying letters and matching letters with Red Fish, Blue Fish. They got a “catch” out of our math game One Fish, Two Fish where they were practicing number identification and one-to-one correspondence. We hope you all love Dr. Suess as much as us!
