X-Ray Fish and the Hungry Caterpillar

In Language Arts, last week students learned about the Letter X as they listened to the read aloud, “A Xylophone for X-Ray Fish” by Liza Charlesworth. They also studied picture words that have the Letter X in them: x-ray fish, xylophone, fox, box, and ox.

In Visual Arts, early preschoolers made an “X-Ray Fish” craft using popsicle sticks and glitter. They also used multi-colored dot-a-dot paint on their xylophone picture. Some of them grasped the dot-a-dot marker with their hand using a tripod position while others held the marker with a fist position.

We sang some Nursery Rhymes too including “The Alphabet Song,” “10 Little Indians,” and “Where is Thumbkin?”

In Science, students listened to the all-time, classic picture book “The Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle. After the story, they pasted 5 green circles and one red circle to create a craft of the hungry caterpillar.

In Math, early preschools reviewed the shape of a circle with their teacher and counted up to 6 circles on the hungry caterpillar craft.

In Movement and Coordination, it was warm enough for all of us to go outside and play “shot put” during Jump Bunch! This was a track-and-field event involving “throwing” and “putting” (i.e., throwing in a pushing motion) a heavy spherical object – the shot – as far as possible. In this class, students used a small ball that was heavy enough for them to throw far.
