X for Xylophones

Prek 4 ( Adele Leeds ) 

This week’s letters are X and Y. Look for our X-ray pictures, miniature xylophones, yaks, wax paintings and yellow-yarn Ys!
We’ll practice letter formation, beginning sounds and identify X and Y words.

Weather permitting, we’ll walk outside and look for signs of Spring and play on the playground!
Playing letter matchup, we’ll review upper and lower case letters ( A-Z).
With Kix cereal, we’ll count and sort to review numbers 1-15.
Using water, food coloring, clear glass jars and paper towels we’ll watch water
“walk” from jar to jar and mix colors to create new ones ( yellow and red to orange and blue and yellow to green).

We’ll read A Gardener’s Alphabet (Mary Azarian) and It Looked Like Spilt Milk (Charles G. Shaw).
