100th day of school

                                                      100th day of school celebration.

Friday February 9th was our 100th day of school. We have learned and grew in 100 days. We counted to 100. During small group we worked together to come up with what we could build with 100 blocks. As a team we decided to build city with 100 blocks. Also, we  stacked a hundred solo red cups to see what 100 looked like. During morning meeting we answered the question I wish I could have 100 of...

Then we joined Kindergarten through third grade for a 100 dance party. We danced to various 100 day songs as well as dance moves from 1920's through today.  The classes dressed up like what they think they would wear in 100 years.

Here are some photos of our celebration.

Pre k was busy exploring our world

 Pre K was busy exploring our world.  We worked our our fine motor skills during Christmas by wrapping objects from the classroom. Pre k is  working  on using pattern blocks to create Christmas pictures, and learning shapes.  We are working on floor puzzles.  We worked on waiting our turn and following directions playing a game of musical chairs. Starting in the new year we introduced sight words. The first sight word is the word I. We used our fingers to draw in gel the sight word I.

Election day


Pre K was learning about election day and who we vote for and why we vote. We read the books Duck for President and Froggy for President. Then we talked about how when we vote we go into a booth and cast our vote. 

Pre K held an election for their favorite cookie they like to eat at snack time. We had ballots with a picture of chocolate chip cookie and an Oreo. Then we went behind a booth and checked off which cookie we liked the best. Then folded it an put it in the ballot box. After everyone voted we counted the ballots.  The results were 2 for Chocolate Chip cookies and 7 for Oreos.   

We enjoyed Oreos for our snack.  

Here are some pictures of us voting on Election day

All About Fall

 All about the season of Fall

We have been busy exploring the season of Fall. Created a chart where we shared what we know about the season of fall. Introduced the letters A and L. A for apple and L for leaves. During circle we talked about things we see in the season of Fall.  Listened to  stories about the season.  Explored and described an apple.  In our science area we have some leaves and acorns. In block area we have some pretend pumpkins to build farms.  We read the story How to make an apple pie and see the world. Then we  made an apple pie in a bowl. We crushed graham  crackers and added apple pie filling.  Pre K created a tree for our dramatic play area.  Then we used the pointer to point to the apple with our name on it. In our science area we explored popcorn kernels, leaves, acorns, and leaves.  We used our fine motor skills to measure and stir and feel the objects.
