Study of WHEELS!
Humans are fascinated by wheels! Wheels give us mobility and a sense of power. Wheels are everywhere, not just on vehicles. The internal workings of many machines depend on wheels. It is safe to say that, without wheels, life as we know it would come to a halt!!
We can always use your help! If you have any wheeled objects to explore we would love to borrow it.
What you can do at home?
Use open-ended questions to engage your child in discussions about wheels.
What do you notice about the wheels?
Who might use some of these wheels?
How do wheels help people?
What is your favorite kind of wheel? Why?
Do you know the parts of a wheel?
Ask your child:
What is the bar that goes through the center of the wheel? AXLE
A bicycle wheel has something that begins with the letter S? SPOKES
What other part does a car wheel have? RIM
What is another word for wheel? TIRE
Apart from WHEELS, ask your child about our MYSTERY LETTERS! What letters have we talked about in school! We have also been RHYMING and making sentences using ALLITERATION!
In math, we have been doing number recognition. We also count how many days we have been in school, and can you imagine we have already been in school for 103 DAYS! So we talked about hundreds, tens and ones! It has been a super busy week, yet super fun!
Have a great weekend, and hope to see many faces in the BBQ tomorrow!
