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!!!

Pumpkins, Pumpkins All Around

This week we went on a field trip to a pumpkin patch where we took a hayride through the mud and around the farm. What a bumpy ride it was but also loads of fun! We saw many sizes and shapes of pumpkins growing on vines and even got to choose our very own pumpkin!

In class this week we measured pumpkins, explored pumpkins through our five senses, practiced writing the letter ‘p’ for pumpkin and much more! Take a look at what we’ve been up to!
