The Kprep class has been learning about the parts of a plant, the plant life cycle, what a plant needs to survive and how to grow our very own plant! The students have made individual “Green house’s” and have planted their very own grass seed! We added some crazy faces to our cups so that when grass grows, it will look like our hair!
We are excited to see some results!
The KPrep class is going to be doing a daily journal entry for the rest of the year! Today we asked them to draw or write something they did over the weekend. A couple of our friends were able to share their entries with the class!
We have new centers for the month of April! They are based on our farm habitat theme. The students are having fun exploring them!
Our class has been reviewing number formation this month! We have been tracing, writing, and building the numbers 1 – 9. We did a fun activity of counting ladybug spots and writing the number! We are becoming quite the number writing experts!
We are continuing our work with building and writing our names! We are building our hand strength, learning to form our letters, and spelling our names all on our own! This was a fun activity we did making caterpillars to celebrate spring and warmer weather!
This activity is all about exploring their names to help the boys and girls begin to recognize them. Recognizing their names is the first step to early literacy. Their names have meaning and value to them…it’s personal. One of the best places to start early letter recognition is through name activities. Be sure to make it fun…write it with chalk when you’re playing outside…write it in the sandbox or even in the steam on the bathroom mirror after bath time. If you’re feeling adventurous use play dough to spell it! The great thing about play-based, name recognition activities is they won’t even know their learning…they’ll just know their spending time with you!
