A Look at Our Week

Mrs. Petty & Mrs. Bayn's Preschool Class - Room 206

Looking Back...

In the last two weeks, we have let our butterflies go, watched our baby robins leave their nest, and observed many springtime changes around our school neighborhood.

We also worked on:

  • identifying letters and sounds while fishing for letters and playing Bingo
  • making predictions about an unfamiliar story, making personal connections to a story, and retelling events from story
  • sorting and counting by creating "families" of creature counters
  • recalling events and favorite activities of our preschool year
  • identifying and creating numbers with WikiStix
  • providing rhyming words at the end of a sentence and drawing the word to create a picture
  • body awareness and balance by trying to balance foam blocks on different body parts

Skills we worked on:

  • Engagement
  • Problem solving
  • Community
  • Gross-motor skills
  • Comprehension
  • Phonological awareness
  • Alphabetic knowledge
  • Reading
  • Concepts about print

Looking Ahead...

This week we will work on:

  • measuring as we make playdough in class
  • identifying and "reading" common symbols in our environment and in print
  • identifying shapes and creating more complex shapes from basic shapes
