During October …
We will be finding out how we use our five senses to explore, investigate and understand ourselves and our world.  It supports cognitive and language development by encouraging children to observe things in their immediate environment and begin to describe them in detail.  The children’s curiosity is sparked as they build on foundation inquiry skills such as making predictions, asking questions and drawing conclusions.

If you are interested in purchasing any books, you can return the form in a named envelope with a check for the amount or order online at Scholastic.com by using our class code HG9Z6.

Pre-K 2 Weekly Newsletter

Posted on October 11, 2019

This week we continued our theme on The Five Senses by focusing on our hearing.  We read Tap Tap Boom Boom by Elizabeth Gluemle and enjoyed acting out rain storm sounds from the story with our bodies and with instruments.  

We also went on a listening walk around the school to identify sounds using our sense of hearing.  We used new vocabulary such as loud, quiet, soft, silent and also learned about sign language.

We created instruments in the Art Center with recyclable materials to compare sounds with real instruments.  The children discovered many innovative ways to use familiar materials to create their instruments!

Next week we will be focusing on our senses of smell and taste.  We will be smelling and tasting different things to compare and describe them.

This week we began our new unit all about using our five senses to explore Fall!

We started by focusing on our sense of sight and discussed all of the things we can see with our eyes. We played the game “I Spy…” searching for all the things that can be seen with our eyes within our classroom. 

The children discussed how glasses and contact lenses are worn by some children and adults to help their vision. Additionally, we learned that people who are blind use walking sticks or guide dogs to help them. We explored the challenges of not being able to see through a special art activity!

We felt excited to go on our first nature walk and used our sense of sight to learn about the area around our school. We observed a variety of people, objects, colors and shapes on our walk. At the Science Center we recorded our observations using a combination of drawing and dictation.

This past week, we wrapped up our Welcome to Pre-K unit by reading the book I Like Myself written by Karen Beaumont. We discussed things that we like about ourselves (hair, eyes, hands, and so on).

The children were invited to come to the Art Center and draw a self-portrait.  The children noticed that we all have things in common, like hair, eyes, and other body parts.

The children were also asked what they like about Pre-K.  They enjoyed hearing each other’s answers, which included playing with the toys and new friends, as well as which center they liked the best.

Pre-K 2 Weekly Newsletter (September 20)

This past week we have continued to practice our routines in the classroom, as well as introduce new routines such as our classroom jobs.  We have been continuing discussions on how to be safe in our school (classroom, outside play, fire drills, stairs, etc).

We read On Monday When it Rained by Cherryl Kachenmeister. This book focused on different types of feelings.  The children had an opportunity to act out different feelings and have also been encouraged to talk about them, especially when something upsets them, such as not sharing toys.  We have been learning about how our actions can make others feel.  

We also introduced our class mood meter/feelings chart.  This is an area where the children can put their picture on the emotion that they are feeling.  They are welcome to move that picture to another feeling as the day progresses.
