We will move into our final unit “Transformation.” To transform means to make a thorough or dramatic change in form, appearance or character. In other words, a transformation is a big change!  Over the next few weeks we will be reviewing all of the changes we have seen this year.

Pre-K 2 Weekly Newsletter – 6.11

Posted on June 11, 2021

This week we read Joseph Had a Little Overcoat by Simms Taback.  The story talks about how Joseph starts out with an overcoat and ‘transforms’ it into a jacket, vest, etc.  This led us into a conversation about how we already reuse materials.  

We also began to discuss the changes we see around us. The children described some of the changes as plants growing, people growing, clouds changing shapes and colors, and ice melting into water.  In the Art Center, we mixed colors together to see what happened!

The children also learned that they are beginning to read using the sounds and letters they already know to create rhyming word lists like cat, hat, mat, rat …

Next week we will discuss more about what kinds of changes happen in nature.  We will focus on the lifecycle of butterflies and how they go through different stages. 

Pre-K 2 Weekly Newsletter – 6.4

This week, we read the book When I was Little and discussed the many ways the girl in the book changed as she grew from baby to child. As a class we brainstormed a list of vocabulary words and ideas related to the main idea of the read aloud. We also built text-to-self connections by discussing the ways each of us change as we grow.

At the Math Center children used string measured to their birth length to compare with objects around the classroom.  We really enjoyed seeing how small we were as babies and how tall we are now!

Pre-K 2 Weekly Newsletter – 5.28

Posted on May 28, 2021

 

This week, we began discussing what human babies need and ways we care for human babies.  We
read Everywhere Babies by Susan Meyers.  The children were thrilled to share some of their personal
experiences and loved guessing which classmate each baby picture belonged to!

We turned Dramatic Play into a baby nursery. The children were actively engaged in imaginative play,
taking care of the babies using some baby items, such as bottles, toys and diapers. Children even
bathed baby dolls in their own mini baths!

This week, we read the book Over in the Meadow by Ezra Jack Keats. We discovered that a meadow is a habitat with many different types homes where various living things can live. 

We also focused on what types of animals hatch from an egg. The children brainstormed a list of animals. Then in the Art Center they made eggs using paper maché around balloons. Once the eggs were dried, the children created various animals that could hatch from an egg, using clay or drawing.

In the Science Center the children continued their science journals by documenting animals that hatch from eggs, as well any other animals that interested them.
