Dear Preschool Parents,
We began our week with the month of April and some sunshine. I loved pulling off an April Fools joke that I found on line. The "brown E" trick. I told the kids I made them some brownies and pretended to have some on a cookie sheet. When I took the napkin off to reveal the brown "E"s, some were not too happy but eventually let me off the hook.
We also worked on letter Xx. We talked about how it is hard to find words that begin with X so we focused on some words that ended in X. One game we played was "X marks the spot." On a poster board we lifted off a post it note. If the letter under the note was an X, we all said, "X marks the spot." We also played tic tac toe with two different colored markers and only X. We read some stories, learned the sound and the sign and how to make an X.
For Religion we finished up our senses that God gave us with the sense of taste. Though we didn't taste anything we talked about things we like to taste and some things we don't like tasting. We thank God for all of our wonderful senses that He has given to us. We are so lucky.
For Math we made a human number line of Easter eggs up to 20. We helped each other out find our place in the number line. We also traced numbers up to 12.
For Art we painted a bunny, made a bunny peeking out of the grass and X ray person.
Our Science project involved marshmallow peeps. We put two different colors together to see what would happen. We also soaked one in vinegar and one in baby oil. We all had a taste and decided that eating the ears first was the most popular way to eat a Peep.
This is our last week before our well deserved Easter break. Have a great rest of the weekend.
