PREK UPDATE: MARCH 27-31, 2017
*No school on Friday, March 31
WHAT WE DID LAST WEEK:
Our letter of the week was Rr. In addition to our usual list of words beginning with the /r/ sound (we came up with 47 words), the children had fun drawing their own robots.
We continue to practice rhyming words. We play a game where students are each given a picture and they have to find their rhyming partner. We also had listening activities where the students followed along on a CD. One listening activity asked students had to draw a picture to complete a rhyme. In another activity, the students were asked to find and cross out the picture that did not rhyme with the rest.
Our letter of the week is Xx. We will have an EXtra special show & tell on Wednesday. The children may bring any item they want for any of the letters learned so far, Aa, Bb. Dd, Ff, Hh, Ii, Kk, Ll, Mm, Nn, Oo, Pp, Qq, Rr, Tt, Vv, Ww, Xx, or Zz.
Our weather theme continues with a science experiment using shaving cream and food coloring. The students are going to see what happens when the food coloring passes through the shaving cream…it rains! We are also going to make could dough.
Our number next week is 7. We will look for groups of 7 around the classroom. We will also practice writing 7, along with reviewing writing numbers 1-6.
