In Language Arts, early preschoolers last week learned about the Letter W. They listened to the humorous read-aloud, “Worm’s Wagon” by Samantha Berger about animals with names that start with the letter W. The walrus, wombat, weasel, woodpecker, and whale wanted to ride and all tried to fit into worm’s wagon, but worm had a hard time pulling the weight of all the animals. And in Writing, we started to practice writing the letter A and W.
In Visual Arts, students enjoyed having their hands painted blue to make a blue whale in the water. They also used “water colors” to paint a picture of a worm. Students did some q-tip painting as well and painted the upper case and lower case w with purple and yellow.
In Science, early preschoolers loved the sensory activity around making a “watermelon” sun catcher using gel, red glitter, and watermelon seeds in a ziplock. In Math, students made a number 3 craft on their Math journal.
In Movement and Coordination, students learned how to toss different colored balls inside a corresponding bucket at JumpBunch. They learned how to follow directions, take turns, and continued to develop their large motor skills while trying to shoot a small ball into a bucket from a distance.
