Welcome to room 119!




We all collaborated on this amazing animal habitat

We are using our bodies to make patterns

This is how we create rabbits and raindrops illustrations

We are writing books about animals and their habitats


These puzzles also show me how to spell words

It is relaxing to make clouds with shaving cream and glue

This is our newest teacher

We can use a variety of materials to create animal coverings.

Look at that pattern

Today we are filling our rainsticks with rice to mimic the sound of the rain

We learned about rabbits and used our research to write our own books!



Thank you for visiting our blog. We are learning many new things and we love sharing our work with you.
We hope to have you visit again soon.

Thank You

I am focused on making my own pattern

Today we are pretending to be the animals in the vet

We are almost finished with the last animal habitat puzzle

We are using logs and blocks to build animal habitats

We used our hands to create clouds with shaving cream and glue

Welcome to our animal theater

We love making snow with our scarves

We built these ramps to help our trucks get on top of our garage

Finding dinosaurs in the rice is always exciting

We are making patterns with magnets and cookie sheets

Wind and Water 






 Over the last few weeks we have been very busy exploring and being scientists.  We have read the books Rabbits and Raindrops by Jim Arnosky, Bring the Rain to Kapiti Plain by Verna Aardema and One Dark Night by Hazel Hutchins. We talked about the different shelters animals make and how they camouflage themselves to protect from predators.  In our block center, we created animal habitats using our beautiful things and blocks.  We also made our own rabbits, created a habitat for the rabbits and have taken care for our rabbits.  


Getting into character of being an animal 
and creating our camouflage coverings 
and masks for protection


Do you think our monsters are scary?

We are having so much fun with habitats!




We can build so many different habitats in the blocks.


In Science, we learned and researched about the different types of precipitation. We tested the concepts of absorption of different materials.  We also learned about ice and what was needed to melt the ice.  We used salt and water together to help melt the ice and reveal the hidden treasures in the ice.  We also learned about clouds and experimented with the amount of water a cloud can hold until it rains. 

Finding the hidden treasures in the blocks of ice.

Will it absorb or repel?


In math, we had fun building many different patterns.  We used beads, blocks, cubes and stickers to make these patterns.  We also played a variety of games where we had to compare who had more.

Patterns, Patterns and more patterns.

Patterns with beads can be lots of fun but takes some concentration.

Look at how tall I can make my pattern!

In small group we researched about the different types of weather,  animals and their habitats and taking care of animals.  

Where do animals live?  What do they eat?


What clothes do I wear when it snows outside?

In Dramatic Play we loved pretending to be animals and 
to be a vet.  



We have had a very busy few weeks in Pre-K.  We would like to thank our volunteers who have helped us in our classroom!  We appreciate your time and help.
