This Week in Pre-K

Plants, Plants and more Plants!

Week of April 25th, 2016

Hello Pre-K families!

This week we wrapped up our plant unit and started to introduce bugs! In Language Arts we met letter buddy blend Bl-. Students read Blow the Blankets to a teacher, used letter stamps to write Bl words and played a Bl drawing game on whiteboards. We drew a picture of a garden with bugs and wrote a number sentence about it: I have___bugs. We used our inventive spelling skills to spell bugs! We continued to work on lower case letters in our writing and through a ladybug letter matching game. We practiced building words by sound through a game. We also played an exciting sight word recognition game!

In Math we created patterns with flowers, practiced skip counting by 5 and played some addition and subtraction games. We practiced writing the equations and using the math vocabulary.

In Science we created a bug graph as a class then students worked on their own bug graph. As we interpreted the results, we noticed that all the graphs were different. We made a plant book as a class. Each student drew a different plant, labeled it and labeled the plant parts. We put all the pictures together to make one Pre-K plant book. We did a little more seed planting as well!

Next week we will learn about frogs and the frog life cycle!
