Preschool Phonics Study: Letter Oo Constellations

January 25, 2015 Preschool No Comments
by Ms. Manda

We turned our eyes to the night sky on Friday and learned about constellations.  Many of the students were already familiar with the big and little dipper…we were impressed!  We used our newly learned knowledge of constellations to create our own in the shape of our focus letter:  Oo.  Using our small motor muscles in our hands, we punched holes in black paper with a toothpick, then held it up to the light to reveal our constellations!  Be sure to check out the night sky this week to see if you can spot the big dipper!  Send us some pics of your little one star gazing…we’d love to add it to our blog post!

This week we were moving our bodies during group time! Ms. Laurel read a story about circles, then the boys and girls were asked to stand on the circle on the floor. The children held hands and sang Ring A Round The Rosie while walking in a circle. It was so much fun!

I was so proud of these K Prep students.  They completed their sight word study work neatly and independently…they are truly on their way to being independent Kindergarteners!  It takes strong fine motor muscles to be able to complete this activity so neatly, way to go!

Our writer’s workshops this month focuses on reading to learn using a variety of resources.  We read the book, Polar Bears, by Gail Gibbons as well as information we found on the Nat Geo Kids website about polar bears.  We learned that polar bears have black skin under their fur, they are very good swimmers, their favorite meal is ringed seal, their outer fur (guard hair) is clear and hollow and much more!

Chalk fun!

The toddlers were giving their little fingers a workout with this activity! The boys and girls were given a piece of white chalk to draw lines up and down, circles or scribbles on a black piece of paper. This activity really had their fine motor skills and creativity working!
