Ghosts, jack-o-lanterns, slime galore…It’s some Halloween fun and much much more!!!
We spent a week discovering bats and spiders. We also compared and contrasted these two creatures. We learned that bats are mammals just like humans and whales except they can fly. They can find their way around through echolocation. We discovered that spiders are arachnids and have eight legs and some can have up to eight eyes.
We enjoyed spider and bat crafts, graphing spiders and bats, we created a venn diagram comparing and contrasting, we sorted, patterned, practiced the letter ‘s’ and ‘b’, and the number ‘8’. Of course, we did much more so check out our pictures!
Leaves are falling, leaves are falling…on the ground…on the ground! Look at all the colors…look at all the colors, falling down…falling down! Red, orange, yellow and brown…and brown!
A lot of math and science was used this week with leaves. We also learned some new vocabulary words–chlorophyl and pigment. Check out our pictures to see what we’ve been up to in the Pre-K room!

Apples BIG and Apples small! Guess what? In Pre-K, we like them all!!!
We have spent a week of exploring apples! We’ve painted and stamped with them, sorted them, patterned them, counted them, tasted them and even cooked them!
We used our math skills to compare their sizes and colors. We made applesauce by cutting, measuring, mixing and following a recipe. We were scientists investigating the inside and outside of an apple, learning the process of how apples grow and what season the apples are ready to be picked from the trees.
We’ve learned some new songs about apples, practiced our names and letters and of course our numbers too! We are really getting good at this Pre-K business!!! 🙂

We’ve been practicing writing uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and our names. We’ve been sorting, patterning, matching and learning about position words. We have also read some fabulous stories! We have been reflecting on the details of these stories as well as learning new vocabulary words and story sequencing. Of course crafting with paint, markers, scissors, glue and other fun materials is always an enriching part of our day! Keep checking in to see what our Pre-K room is up to! 😊
Our Early 3’s stayed busy this week with several activities! We practiced holding scissors properly and cutting, had a jammin’ music session with Miss Joanie, watched volcanos erupt with lava (for letter L), … just to name a few!
