We had a busy week in Pre-K 2 this week. We continued our theme: Transportation! The children had a great time sharing about their projects and learning about new forms of transportation. In Math, they played a new game, “Feely Box.” I hid a shape inside a box, and I displayed 7 shapes on the table, including the one that matches the one I hid. To play the game, they put their hand in the box to feel the shape and then point to the matching shape on display. They name the shape without taking it out of the box and then explain how they know what shape they are touching. Then, they take out the shape from the box and see if they correctly identified and matched the shape.
Here is what is happening:
- Students are demonstrating more and more independence! They are getting in the habit of taking off their jackets and placing them in the big clear bags along with their backpacks. Please make sure they know how to put on, take off and can zipper their own jackets. If they have lunch boxes, they can place them in the top part of their cubby. Please have them sign their name and move their name stick before going to wash their hands.
- The children have been having so much fun presenting their Transportation Projects! They are also being critical thinkers when coming up with questions to ask their classmates about their projects.
- The children also had a lot of fun participating in Spirit Week!
Have a great rest of your weekend, see you tomorrow!
