Goodbye Messages

Thank you to all Pre-K families for a wonderful year- even though the latter portion looked quite different!  I speak for the whole Pre-K team in letting you know we greatly appreciate all of your support and we genuinely loved the time we spent with your children this year in the classroom and online.  We wish you a wonderful summer and are sending huge virtual hugs to all of our Pre-K students!

Pre-K Activities- Thurs. June 11th

Good morning, Pre-K!  Today we are continuing with ocean activities and are going to begin by reading the story The Deep Blue Sea.  This is a repetitive book that I hope you will read along with me!

Mrs. Lawrence reads The Deep Blue Sea

This is a really silly song that I think you will enjoy!

Little Green Frog song

Movement: Join along for a fun frog themed yoga class!

Frank the Frog- Cosmic Kids Yoga

Craft: Celery Fish

I would love to see if you can draw a fish!  Miss Sam made a video of how you can draw a fish with shapes- see if you can follow along with her!  There is also a fish template if you would rather print it off.  When you are finished with your drawing see if you can paint it with a celery stick or decorate it with whatever supplies you have at home!

Pre-K Activities- Tues. June 9th

Good morning, Pre-K!  This week is all about ocean activities and we are going to begin by reading a story where we can practice our counting called Ten Little Fish.

Mrs. Lawrence reads Ten Little Fish

I have a song for you that we can also practice counting with!  Use your fingers to count the frogs in this song!

5 Green and Speckled Frogs

Craft: Jellyfish

I wonder if you can make a jellyfish puppet!  You can paint or colour a paper plate blue (for water) and cut pieces of string.  An adult will help cut a slit in the paper plate and cut out the jellyfish shape.  You can paint or colour your jellyfish and then draw on a face and glue on the strings and popsicle stick to the back.  You now have a jellyfish puppet that can swim in the water!

Sensory Play: Ocean Moon Sand

Moon sand is super fun and easy to make and allows your child to experience some messy play!  In a container combine 8 cups of flour and 1 cup of baby oil (could also half the recipe).  Add food colouring for fun- maybe blue for our ocean theme!  Put some cups and bowls in the moon sand and maybe some small toys and let your child be creative and have fun with what they can make!

Movement: Ocean Movements Freeze Dance

Open the link below to see ocean movement flashcards.  You could use these as a freeze dance game.  Tell or show your child(ren) the movement you would like them to do and then turn on some music.  When the music stops they have to freeze and then wait for you to call the next movement.

Ocean movements

I will share more ocean themed activities with you on Thursday!

Pre-K Activities- Thurs. June 4th

Hello, Pre-K!  Today we are going to continue with our transportation theme and start by reading Pete the Cat Construction Destruction.

Pete the Cat Construction Destruction story

I also have a fun, repetitive song for you to sing!

Driving In My Car song

Craft: Stoplight 

Create a stoplight using construction paper, glue and crayons!  First, draw or trace 3 circles onto  construction paper (one red, one yellow or orange and one green).  Then rip a bunch of red, yellow and green construction paper up into small pieces.  Finally, glue the red papers into the red circle, the yellow papers into the yellow circle and the green papers into the green circle.

Craft: Name Rocket Ship

This is a fun craft to develop our printing and letter recognition skills!  Cut out one square for every letter of your name (an adult could cut a strip of paper for you and draw lines for you to cut on) and one triangle.  Write one letter of your name on each square.  Glue your triangle to the top of your piece of paper and then your squares in order.  Decorate any way you wish!

Movement: Red light, green light song and game

You can use this song to do different movements with green light and then stop with red light.  You can dance, jog or hop with green light and then make sure to freeze when you hear read light!

Red light, green light song

Red light, green light can also be played as a game with your whole family!  It is a great game to play outside in your backyard or in an open field.

  • One person is chosen to be “It” (the traffic light) and he/she stands a good distance away from the other players with his back to them. The other players stand in a line facing the person who is “It”.
  • When whoever is “It” calls ‘Green Light,’ the other players move towards him until he spins around, calling ‘Red Light.’ When they hear the red light command the other players must freeze on the spot. Everyone remains frozen until the next ‘Green Light’ is called.
  • Play continues until someone reaches and tags whoever is “It”. The tagger becomes the new caller and the game begins again.

Reminders:

  • I am still doing one on one Google Meet’s with students next week.  If you have not done so already, you can still email me to sign up so that I can chat with your child and complete a Pre-K Questionnaire with them.  I will send back the Pre-K questionnaire the last week of Pre-K!
  • Wednesday, June 17th 10:00 am- M/W whole class Google Meet to view slideshow and say goodbye
  • Thursday, June 18th 10:00 am- T/TH whole class Google Meet to view slideshow and say goodbye

Have a great weekend!

Mrs. Lawrence
