Big Day for PreK Theme

Nature All Around Us

  

 Science Focus....

Walk outside and what do you see?

Do you see your shadow?

Make your shadow WIGGLE, jump, WALK, dance, and more.

What else can you make your shadow do?

 

Sprout a Sunflower (if you didn't already:)

Materials: sunflower seeds, plastic, soil, spray water bottle, plastic wrap

*Have your child scoop soil into a cup or small plant pot.

 *Then poke 2 holes into the top of the soil.

*Direct them to place a seed in each hole.

 *Then gently cover the seeds with soil and spray with water.

*Place plastic wrap on top of the cup to keep the soil moist and warm.

*Set the cup in a sunny window

*Have your child spray with water as needed and watch for growth.

With care, the sunflowers will sprout in about a week.

Our Writing Focus…. Letter Ww

 Writing Our Class Book

Rabbit, Rabbit What Do You See? 

I decided to tie this in with our Nature All Around Us Theme, since I am encouraging them to pretend they are the rabbits and write a descriptive sentence about something they see in nature. There is also an area for an illustration of what they see. Please have your child draw a picture of what they see, but NOT COLOR. This way, when each child gets a copy of the book, they will all have a chance to color in each others’ illustrations.

 (SS email)

 * Skill Sheets Letter “Ww” can be done throughout the week and according to your child’s ability and level of interest.

Dance like a Flower in the Sun and Wind
