Happy Mother's Day!

We learned about how a seed grows and we made gifts for our Moms.  They come home today, so we hope you enjoy them!

Teddy Bear Tea

Every year, we are lucky enough to have Sandy Stark come in to organize a Teddy Bear Tea for our classroom.  The kids can bring their Teddys, and have snack and tea with them.  They also listen to a story, dance and make a craft.  It is a time for us to meet some new friends for next year.

Red and Yellow Counters

We used red and yellow counters for a math lesson today.  We practiced making patterns that we were shown and we practiced subitizing.  It was tricky, because we only got to look at the examples for three seconds!  We did a great job!

ABC Hunt

The PreK went on a scavenger hunt today.  There were two teams, yellow and green.  Each team had to find different ABC cards hidden around the room.  Then, they had to bring them back and put them into alphabetical order as a team.  Here we are searching and working together!

Maps and how to make them

We are learning about maps for our new Social Studies unit.  Eventually, we will use this information for our Jamaica Now and Then project.  Today we listed types of maps, what maps show and things that maps need.  Here we are making a map of our classroom.

Towers of Math

For math today, we practiced skip counting, counting forwards and backwards and counting to 20.  We each got a card and we had to identify the numbers and build a corresponding tower.  We did a great job!

Little Blue and Little Yellow

This is Leo Lionni's first book.  It is a story about friendship and how friends can come in all different colors.  It is also about how our friendships can affect us.  After reading the story, we painted our own picture of little blue and little yellow.  Then, we watched a filmstrip of the movie that was made for the book in 1961, that sure was interesting!
