Pre-K 2 - Weekly update - W/O 10/14/19

Hello Pre K Families,

We only had 3 days this week, but we were very busy!

Thank you for having your child ready for the colder mornings/ outside play time this week!

This is what is going on in our centers!

Dramatic Play- There is a Pumpkin and Apple stand this month. This has been a very busy center and we have a waiting list each day!

Art Easel- Creative painting with watercolors

Math Center- There was a lot of counting going on this week at the math table. I placed small pumpkins, labeled with numbers, the children rolled dice to see how many leafs to put on each pumpkin. There was also an apple coloring paper, a roll of the dice showed you how many red, green and yellow apples to color!

Discovery Table- This week we had various fall/nature items to explore with magnifying glasses. The children were asked to draw what they saw.

Art Table- We made tissue paper pumpkins to hang in a window. We also made real leaf wreaths. Our art projects for this week will be sent home Monday, they are on the drying rack!

This weeks Reading Street book was… “A Rainbow All Around Me” by Sandra Pinkney. The many colors of the rainbow are presented as “colors are you colors are me”. For each color , a photo display with captions shows the color in action. Vocabulary words were- colors, rainbow ,barefoot, moving, falling and sticking. We discussed the difference between an illustration and a photograph. We also reviewed the job of an author and an illustrator.

We sang our “5 Little Pumpkins” on a gate song and “Way up high in the Apple Tree” song.

*****Show and tell Tuesday for the letter H****************

Mrs. Vivar and I hope to see you at the Fall Festival on Saturday!

Warmly,

Robin Pascal
