Miss Cleasby's 4K News
News for the week of February 4th
This week we will begin a "Valentine" theme. We will be water coloring hearts and making an " I Love..." art project. We will be decorating our valentine boxes which we will use during our Valentine Friendship party next Thursday, February 14th! If you have not done so yet, please send a shoebox to school. We will be starting learning stations this week. During learning stations we are able to do many activities in a small period of time. This week during learning stations we will be doing an "Exploding Milk" science experiment. Our A.M. class dramatic play area has been turned into a flower shop and our P.M. class dramatic play area has been turned into a post office.

Jolly Phonics "l"
The Jolly Phonics letter of the week is "L". The action for the letter "L" is to pretend to lick a lollipop, saying llll. See the video above of a class singing the Jolly Phonics "L" song and doing the "L" action. We have also begun to sound out easy three letter CVC words! See the Jolly Phonics tutorial video and the Starfall video below for some examples!
