What Are We Learning???

We will review the numbers 11-20. We are going to review the number names and practice their amounts as well as how to write them. So far we have learned about L, F, E, H, T, U, C, O, Q, S, I & G. We are going to add J this week.

This week we begin our studies on Boxes, Buildings, and Roads. For the next several weeks we will explore those topics and use literature to enhance our learning. This week on Tuesday we are lucky to have the Omaha Children's Museum visit and do some experiments and dramatic play based on the story of The Three Little Pigs. The first focus question we will discuss is what types of buildings and roads are in our neighborhood? We will brainstorm what types of buildings they know of so as you are driving be sure to point out what you see! We will retell the story of the 3 Little Pigs and compare and contrast a few versions of the story.

Speech-Language Group- Jan 19-22, 2016

We will continue to follow directions identifying shapes- star, circle, square, triangle, heart. We will "act out" the action depicted in a picture and describe the present action about ourselves or a peer using the correct subject pronoun (I, He, She), copula verb form (am, is) and present progressive verb (-ing) in our utterance. We will say the words and do the actions to the nursery rhyme “Little Miss Muffet”.

Little Miss Muffet

Little Miss Muffet

Sat on a tuffet,

Eating her curds and whey.

Along came a spider,

And sat down beside her,

And frightened

Miss Muffet away.
