Reading together as a family every night is an important event in a young child’s life. It helps to build listening skills, comprehension, vocabulary, and pure enjoyment for reading. What a wonderful gift that you as a parent can give your child!

For the month of November, we will be continuing our unit on My 5 Senses. The children will be having authentic fun experiences to learn about all of their senses. We will be learning about people who have a disability with some senses and how they cope with it. The children will be immersed in many hands on activities throughout the centers, including mixing colors, guessing smells from smelly cups, and creating art projects with various textures.

Remote Weekly Letter 11.20.20

This week we explored our sense of touch through several hands on activities! During our small group meeting we mixed ingredients to make our own play dough! We noticed that the flour felt soft, the salt was a little rough, and the oil was slippery. When we mixed all the ingredients together we had squishy play dough!

We went on a ‘touch’ scavenger hunt around our homes to find objects using our new vocabulary, including soft, hard, rough, smooth, bumpy. We recorded all the textures we found and counted which texture was the most common in our homes.

We are adding new self portraits to our Pre-K portrait gallery by using textured materials to create the parts of us, including hair, clothing, and accessories! It was so excited to see all of our friends’ creativity!

Next week we will discuss all of the wonderful things we are thankful for. Beginning November 30th, we will explore our newest unit “Where We Live!”

This week we read the book Press Here by Herve Tullet.  The children enjoyed an interactive experience with the book by using their sense of touch to make the book change as we read along. 

In the Science Center we made a collage using different texture materials and discussed how they felt (soft, rough, bumpy, and so on)

Remote Newsletter November 13

This past week we continued our unit on the five senses by focusing on our senses of smell and taste.  We read Stone Soup retold by Heather Forest and discussed what ingredients we would add to the soup.

The children had an opportunity to smell and comment on what they smelled in different scent containers in the Science Center.  We continued this discussion at circle by talking about what things have good smells versus bad smells.

The children discussed how certain foods at our meal times tasted (crunchy, sticky, juicy, salty, sweet, sour). They explained why they liked or disliked something that they ate.

We started to make signs and menus for our Dramatic Play Center in order to turn it into a restaurant where the children can pretend to experiment with the different “smells” and “tastes” of food.

We also started to sign-in by writing our names each morning when we come into school.

Next week we will continue our senses by focusing on our sense of touch.
