This Week In Pre-k!
We had a fun and great week with our children. We hope you had a great week too!
This week on our large group we sang morning songs, did our circle time, counted the caterpillar, and read some stories. For our circle time we focused on the letter ‘T’, the color blue and cone as the shape of the week. We also continued to do the message board and focused on the beginning sounds of different words. As usual our children were very active and engaged in the activities.
For Cooperative game our kids were racing with each other to see who collects the most balls. We used hula hoops to collect the balls and when we said, “1 2 3 go!” the one who runs the fastest and collects the most balls wins! Our kids had so much fun and a good morning exercise.
On our Literacy session, we continued to work on the Zoo-phonics alphabets. We gave each child a letter to act out the stories and movement of the animal letters and the sound it makes. They also gave examples for the letters such as ‘b' for bear, ‘c' for cat and so on. We're seeing a great improvement in our children as they are engaged and attentive in the activity.
For Math our children were learning about patterns and finding out what comes next. We gave them worksheets to do where they select and trace the next item. They also did patterns with different colors. They were really interested and happy to do the activity.
For Science we continued animal habitats specifically Grassland and Polar habitats. We showed them pictures and they sorted flashcards of different animals in their correct habitats. They were excited and wanted to take more turns to do the sorting activity.
