The Pre-K enjoyed listening to books by Dr.Seuss, for example The Lorax. They practiced ending sounds on the truffla Trees. Sounds like ot, at, ox, and en. We read One Fish, Two Fish and played fish sight word memory. This week the Pre-K looked for birds outside and wrote about a bird that they saw. They did such a great job sounding out all the words and writing all the sentences themselves.

At art center, the Pre-K made truffla trees and told us that these were special trees just like they had read about in the book. They made fish bowls with paint. They were even able to paint a fish to place insde the bowl. This week the Pre-K created their own bird nests. They used quick dry clay and different materials to make it all on their own.

At the science center, the Pre-K worked on some STEM activities. They were given a task to try and build with the cups to make a structure that wouldn’t fall over. The Pre-K came up with some great ideas to keep the cups from falling and worked together as a team. Another activity the Pre-K worked on was using shaving cream and building blocks to create structures. This was a repeat by request activity. The children loved it so much the first time they asked for it again. The Pre-K also enjoyed making Oobleck. We all measured it out and had the pre-K mix it all together.

At the math center, the Pre-K used colorful fish crackers to practice graphing, counting and patterning. They enjoyed sorting out all the colors first and then graphing to see who had the most of each color. Every time the Pre-K graphed they were excited to show us the results They worked on tracing numbers. The Pre-k also worked with patterning sticks. The Pre-K also worked on fine motor skill looking for pipe cleaner worms and then counted how many they had discovered.
