C for Carrot

carrot

Prek 4 Class ( Adele Leeds ) 

C is  the letter of the week. We’ll practice letter formation, identify C words and explore our “C” box.

At circle time we’ll use carrots and carrot tops for an alphabet and number ( 1-15 ) identification and review activity.  Ask your child about our carrot patch!

Each day at circle time we review days of the week, months of the year, seasons and weather. We use our name cards for attendance and identifying names.

Look for our “circle cat” and corn on the cob art projects and our “cloud counting ” booklets!

With white chalk, food coloring, paper and water we’ll investigate chalk: how it looks and feels and what happens when it gets wet. We’ll watch it change color as we dip it into colored water. This simple experiment encourages sensory, observational and predicting skills.

We’ll read Pumpkin Pumpkin by Jeanne Titherington and do a coloring and sequencing activity.
