End-of-the-Year Fun

End-of-the-Year Fun

The last days of preschool, the children were asked what some of their favorite things to do in preschool were.  We revisited those activities and the children had free choice time.  Some of the activities included:  helping wash all the toys, playing on the iPads, water color painting, fishing in the boat, building with magna-tiles, Barnyard Bingo, pet sorters and blowing bubbles.

When it rains . . .

When it rains . . .

To work on writing skills, the children dictated what they like to do when it rains and then wrote it.  All children go through the stages of writing, starting with scribbling, moving to letter like shapes, to writing initial sounds in words to writing words.  Here you can see some of the children creating a child in their rain coat, boots and umbrella after they completed their writing.

Slap the Letter Bug

More letter identification this week.  The children could use a fly swatter to slap the bug.  They then had to tell the letter name and sound it made.  Isaac and Aubrey work together while Bauer and Zoe wait their turn.

The Sun

The Sun

This week we learned about the sun.  The children compared real and pretend pictures.  They learned:  The sun is a star made of fire and gases.  It is 93 million miles away.  The sun creates seasons as the earth rotates around it.  The sun gives heat and light.  Earth needs the sun for everything to live.  The sun has rays.  Nathanael, Keagan, Zoe, Jordon and Ryker work on thier painting of the sun.
