U for Unicycle

uni

 

Prek 4 Class

We’ll review letters T and U and finish our U projects (unicycles and underwater scenes).

We’ll learn about volcanoes ( we’ll watch a volcano erupt!) and violins and make vegetable soup( talking also about healthy foods and healthy bodies and different  textures and tastes).

We’ll use several pasta shapes and muffin tins for a math counting and sorting activity.

Phonics lessons will include making rhyming puzzles and a small booklet of rhyming cards.

To practice beginning sounds, we’ll make a sound stew! I’ll put objects one at a time in the pot and encourage the children( taking turns) to add “ingredients” with the same beginning sound until we have a full pot!

Using cereal boxes as game boards we’ll play letter identification lotto/ bingo with the children identifying and marking the letters on their cereal box/ boards as I draw and display the letters. This activity ( one we will repeat) encourages the children to look for and find letters and numbers on all sorts of printed material!

Look for our V art projects: flower-filled vases and volcanoes!
