In Language Arts, early preschoolers learned about the Letter U. They listened to the read aloud, “Umbrellabird’s Umbrella” by Heather Feldman. Students enjoyed looking at picture words that start with the Letter U: utensils, uniforms, ukulele, umpire,underwear, umbrella, and unicorn.
In Visual Arts, early preschoolers colored a beautiful picture of Umbrellabird and stuck 3 fancy feathers on her. They also made a Letter U Craft by pasting a purple umbrella on the Letter U with blue glitter glue for the raindrops.
The Nursery Rhymes early preschoolers danced and sang to last week were “Jack and Jill,” “Row, Row, Row Your Boat,” “Shoo Fly Don’t Bother Me,” and “Skip to My Lou.”
In Science Discovery, students listened to the read-aloud “Let’s Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day” by Peter Connie Roop. We talked about a shamrock and also learned how “bell peppers” are healthy vegetables! Students then created 3 green “Shamrock Prints” using bell peppers prints with green paint on card stock paper to continue developing their fine motor skills.
In Math, students worked on their Math Booklet and pasted the Numeral One and One Owl on a tree, counted 1 – 10, and learned about the colors of a rainbow.
The Virtue of the Month story last week was “Glad Monster, Sad Monster (A Book About Feelings)” by Ed Emberley and Anne Miranda. This book was a fun and interactive way to help early preschoolers identify the many different ways we feel, and understand our range of emotions.
