This week we focused on winter animals. We made a penguin craft that is being displayed in our hallway. To go with our penguin craft, we read the book “Five Little Penguins Slipping on the Ice”. This book was fun for the students to follow along with because it is similar to “Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed”. They were able to join in on familiar phrases throughout the story and also practice their counting. We have also been singing and doing the actions to a penguin song. It is a fun, silly song to get us moving.
We also read the book “Polar Bear , Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?” All of the students are very familiar with the book “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” so it was neat to see them be able to follow along with this story because of its similarities and repetitiveness.
On Thursday we decided to go for a short winter walk around the school to see the fog and the frost on the trees. Everyone was excited to see a squirrel jumping through the trees!
Often at the end of the day, I like to wrap up class by asking everyone: “What was fun today?” Using this phrasing seems to get a great response, try using this phrase with your child after their morning at Pre-K and see what they tell you!
