This week we have been found dabbling in some art, measuring penguins, patterning and fishin’ for sight words! Check us out…we are “Hard at Work”!
We recently spent a week discussing presidents. There were many discussions about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. We also spent time learning about coins…pondering how much each coin is worth, who the president’s are on each coin, the sizes of the coins, etc.
There was much fun to be had with fine motor activities such as, tooth pick punching, building fun-dough flags, letters with do-a-dots and coin rubbings. We journaled about being president and also practiced our writing skills by using our sight words and sounding out new words. We are proud to be in Pre-K!

The past couple of weeks we have been introducing our sight words and skills we need to become early readers! The kids have been very excited to read their sight words in books, the message, and on worksheets. So far, we have learned I, like, is, & and. We have also learned that readers should find a good reading spot (quiet and comfy), look at the pictures (to help us figure our words we don’t know), and read the text with our fingers (using one-to-one correspondence with the words we are reading). We are getting lots of practice with these skills and the Pre-K students are very excited to be reading books!
