Pre-K 4.4 Classroom News
Make every day a day to learn
First of all, thank you for attending Parent Teacher Conferences! It's always a pleasure having you here.
This week we have been focusing and questioning about the things that people throw away and their characteristics. As we keep studying about Renewing, Reusing, and Recycling, we will learn concepts and skills in literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts and even technology. We will also be developing thinking skills to observe, investigate, ask questions, solve problems and test our ideas.
We had a site visit to look for trash cans and recycling bins and found out that there are plenty of those around! We also found out that materials are separate into different categories and we are starting to classify them by what they are made of.
It is amazing to experience with the children their excitement and love for our environment and seeing them empowered by what they can do to support and take care of our planet!
This week's objectives:
- Demonstrated knowledge of pattern
- Uses number and concepts vocabulary
Book we enjoyed this week
Recycling Game Project
The children are so impressed with all the activities they can make out of recycled material, and how fun and easy it is to create a simple game, toy, instrument, etc. The project we propose is simple and fun! Help them create any game they want related with letters, numbers, patterns, or rhymes using all recycled materials. There are so many ideas you can use: bottle caps, plastic bottles, even a pringles can! Make sure your child names the game, and attaches the rules /how to play.
If your child needs extra help brainstorming for a game show them pictures and have them come up with one. You can Google: Games or toys made out of trash or recycled materials and you will get so many ideas!
The idea is for each child to present their game to the class, and we will place them in our Toys & Games center for the rest of the class to use. If you can send it on Friday 15th that would be great, however, feel free to send it in whenever it is ready.
