Leaves, Leaves All Around Leaves are Falling to the Ground

It’s Autumn in Pre-K! We are exploring our senses with leaves this week and discussing the changes that come with the fall season. We’ve added a few pics from our week to show you what we’ve been up to!

Our Crayons Talk

This week we have been working with colors, crayons, markers and paints! We’ve been mixing and swirling colors together to see different results! We’ve measured, sorted and graphed our crayons! This week has been so much fun! Check out our pics!

Pre-K is Falling for Fall

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

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!!! 🙂

Fabulous Fun in Pre-K

We’ve started out this year in Pre-K having an amazing time. We’ve been exploring our names through puzzles, painting, writing and practice. Our Pre-K students have been working hard at enhancing their math skills by patterning, sorting, matching and counting! We’ve also been enjoying art, music, getting to know one another and making new friends! Our year is off to an awesome start!

Creative Tots Artist Of The Month – Hans Hoffman

Hello Everyone!  The year is winding down up but our talented artists are still winding up for some wonderful paintings.  Our artist for April is Hans Hoffman.  Hoffman was born in 1880 in Bavaria.  His path in life started him in government but he ended up one of the most renown Abstract Artists.  Hans Hoffman developed the “push and pull” theory in which he believed depth could be created simply by color, texture and shape.  Experimenting with this theory lead him to create many beautiful paintings with loose expressive backgrounds surrounding large flat squares and rectangles.
