I for Igloo


Prek 4 ( Adele Leeds )

We all enjoyed our Thanksgiving celebration: stories, songs and special treats! Thank you Mrs. Timpanaro for the delicious treats and being a great help!

This week we’ll make igloos and insects ( letter I ) and practice writing upper and lowercase  Is and the number 8. We’ll experiment with ice: how it forms and what makes it melt ( warm hands and salt).

I’ll read  the poem ” Every Insect ” by Dorothy Aldis and we’ll make insects showing the three body parts and antennae. We’ll talk about helpful and harmful insects and use play insects for a math estimating and counting activity.

We are practicing our songs and scripture verses for our holiday show (12/20 ). We are talking about the Christmas season and opportunities for thankfulness, sharing and giving.

At circle time, we’ll do a gingerbread man number line count (#s1-20), check the weather and review the days of the week, months of the year and the seasons.

Ask your children about our rhyming song and  our gingerbread poem.

Stir a bowl of gingerbread 

Spicy brown and smooth

Roll it with a rolling pin 

Up and up and down

With a cookie cutter 

Make some little men

Put them in the oven

Til half past ten!! Yum!!

This week was so much fun at school!  We worked on all our beautiful Thanksgiving decorations and enjoyed a Thanksgiving feast and parade.

We snacked on a turkey that Mrs. Leeds helped us make with pears, bananas, strawberries, blueberries, and grapes.  It looked so much like a real turkey!

We read our Thanksgiving books and said what we are thankful for.

At circle time, we sang our finger-play songs, reviewed our colors, shapes, days of the week, months, and holidays.  We continue to work on our attention skills, taking turns, listening skills, and sharing with our friends.  Everyone is doing a fine job.

It was a short week, but a very productive one.  Next week, we will begin the letter H.

We are so thankful for our friends and families.
