Prek 3 ( Adele Leeds / Michele Zinicola)

This week is a short week; school is closed Thursday 11/7 and Friday 11/8 for New Jersey’s teachers’  convention.
This week’s letter is G. We’ll make giraffes ( learn some fun giraffe facts), sort and count (and snack on) with colorful goldfish crackers and use red and green grapes for counting and patterning and making our own grape juice!
We’ll work in our workbooks and do a letter G worksheet.
Please practice the G sounds ( hard and soft) and review G words! Thank you!
With food coloring, milk and dish detergent we’ll watch colors mix!
We’ll learn this poem

I know a Giraffe
I know a giraffe
With a neck that’s really high
She stretches and stretches
Til it reaches the sky
She lives on the plains
With the elephants too
You might also see her
When you visit the zoo!!
