O for Ostriches


Prek 4 ( Adele Leeds) 

This week’ s letter is O and we’ll make ostriches and owls.

We’ll learn about the world’s oceans and the plant and animal life living in them. Together we’ll create our own “ocean.”

We’ll use oranges ( whole and sections) for a counting and graphing math activity.

Look for our ” in the snow ” booklets!

We’ll snow bowl  ( using lettered white cups and a softball (snowball) to identify letters and review beginning sounds. The children will name the letters on the cups he/ she knocks down, say the beginning sound and name a word(s) that begin with the letter.

Using a candle, play dough, jar and colored water we’ll discover what’s in the air ( oxygen ) and why we need it so much!

Show and Tell is Wednesday 2/3. Please ask your child to bring in and share something that begins with the letters M , N or O.
