O for Owls

Prek 4 ( Adele Leeds ) 

This week’s letter is O. We’ll make owls and octopuses and edible fruit flowers using oranges and carrots!

We’ll learn about the ocean– its creatures and salt water. We’ll compare fresh water and salt water and challenge ourselves to identify and describe the differences.

We’ll talk about winter clothes that keep us warm and then play What’s missing? The children can take turns wearing boots, mittens, scarves and hats and they will close their eyes, I’ll take away a hat or scarf and see if they can identify what’s missing! This activity challenges visual discrimination and memory.

We’ll review numbers, letter shapes and colors!

We’ll use mini marshmallows in a counting game and to make tiny snowmen!

January is so much fun !  Our class trip to Candylicious was a huge success!  We had a great time with all the delicious candy crafts – making and eating them!!!

We have completed the letters L and M.

Next week, we will work on the letter N and continue practicing our numbers 1 through 6.

At circle time, we enjoy talking about the days, months, seasons, and weather.

We continue to practice our manners, taking turns, sharing, following directions, and being considerate to our friends.

Story time is fun with our stories about snowmen, letter and number recognition, and our new number poem – One, Two, Buckle Your Shoe.

At music time, we danced with bells and made our snowman help us with a silly song.

Our letter project for the letter M was such a cute mouse!

Next week, we will do letter projects for the letter N, including nests, night scenes, and numbers!

January is moving along so quickly, and of course, is so much fun!

Remember to wear your smile to school!!!
