Prek 4 / Wraparound Class (Adele Leeds)

We’ll complete our alphabet review over the next two weeks and will continue our review of numbers 1-30, ordinal numbers, odd and even numbers and  counting by 5s and 10s.

Using spring theme math story problems we’ll practice counting, addition, subtraction, sorting and comparing sets.

For a letter and number review art project we’ll make a collage using newspaper, magazine and coupon cutouts!

We’ll make “milk paint” ( a mix of evaporated milk and food coloring that creates a pastel look ) and salt paint ( salt, liquid starch and tempera paint mixed together to create a frosted appearance ). Celery stalks, Q-tips ,clothespins and plastic bottle tops will be our “paintbrushes.”

We’ll learn about Memorial Day and its meaning and celebrations and make flags, one decorative and one edible( blueberries, strawberries and marshmallows)!
