We had a unexpected short week, missing a day and also having a delayed start. When we were here at school, we continued to enjoy Dr. Seuss related stories and activities. We read one of my favorites, Green Eggs and Ham. Many children were able to identify rhyming words in the text! Afterwards children matched green egg yolk shapes. Everyone did an amazing job and remembered the names of most of the shapes that they saw. We also created a graph with people shaped manipulatives. They were colorful just like the images in the book, My Many Colored Days. On Friday, we participated in some festive St. Patrick’s Day activities. The preschoolers found golden numbers and matched them to numbers on a pot of gold. Everyone loved looking for the shamrocks that Mrs. P hid in the school. We found a few and earned more spirit points for our class. I also brought in a special treat for the children. 🙂
Ms. Terry helped children practice their pincer grasp when she brought us an adorable leprechaun picture to color. Ms. Schenck talked all about different healthy green foods that we eat. Children learned about some new fruits and vegetables like, starfruit, avocado, kiwi and asparagus. Maybe they’d like to try these!
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Spring is just around the corner… I hope mother nature cooperates. 🙂
