Christopher Columbus Story

ChristopherColumbus

Prek 4 Class ( Adele Leeds )

We’ll review A, B and C this week and continue working on letter formation and beginning sounds.

At circle time we’ll have lessons and activities  on positional words and measurement. Look for our measurement mini books. 

We’ll make weather wheels that the children can use at home to mark each day’s weather!

I’ll fill a “sensory sock” with items that the children will identify by touch alone.

We’ll read ” In 1492 ” by Jean Marzollo  ( the story is told in simple rhyme ) and talk about  Christopher Colombus and his bravery and explorations. We’ll make Ninas , Pintas and Santa Marias  and learn how explorers used the stars to help them find their way! 

After we read ” Sixteen Runaway Pumpkins ”  by Dianne Ochiltree  we’ll use paint and thumbprints to do a pumpkin vine math activity. 

We’ve been reading Roger Hargreaves’ Mr. Men and Little Miss books. The children love the stories ( each story has an age-appropriate  moral lesson conveyed with humor and tenderness). Ask your children about Mr. Brave and Little Miss Somersault!

We’ll read Mr. Happy this week.
