Come see what we've been doing this week in TK.
We started music with Mr. Jim this week
It's finally started to cool down this week and our class has been able to spend more time outside. We have quite a few little monkeys that are climbing all over our play structure!
Come dance with us!
We got our wiggles out by Freeze Dancing.
Balance... Check out our new stilts.
Special Guest Teachers
We listened to a story with Mrs Hall and had Spanish with Ms. Nati. It was fun to learn from new people.
It's so hot... We decided to make our own paper popsicles to cool us down.
Alexis turned 5!
We had a great week!
See you next Friday.
We had our first Fire Drill this week and TK did awesome! They were great listeners and were able to follow all the directions given by Ms. Martha and myself.
Please ask your child about the fire drill. They will be able to tell you what we do at school if our alarm goes off. Talk about your home fire plan so they are prepared if there is an emergency.
We enjoy watching our students learn through creative play.
We did our first project with our study buddies this week. Since we have been working on "Little Red Riding Hood" our Kindergarten Buddy helped us make our own Little Red Riding Hood and a Bad Wolf. Our buddies helped guide us as we put this project together. It's proudly displayed in our hallway for all the parents to see. Make sure you stop and check it out and ask your child who their study buddy is. We will meet with them again in two weeks for our next project.
Friday we went to church. We learned about Abraham and his family.
Thanks for checking out our blog, visit us again next Friday!
Welcome to TK!!!!
We got off to a great start this week!
We continue to work on number recognition
and correspondence with our interactive whiteboard
We are so proud of what the children have
accomplished so far. Reinforce number recognition
and 1 to 1 correspondence at home, You can make
a game out of it and involve the entire family.
The children are seen here exercising to the number 100. We danced and had a movement activity counting to 100. This is one of the interactive ways we reinforce counting and memorization in an engaging manner. Try activities that encourage movement and learning at the same time.
In Language Arts we continue to work on our Storybook "Peter and the Wolf". In this lesson we worked on proper book handling, reinforced scissors skills and followed oral directions. We also worked on identifying same and different sounds in words.
We had a wonderful assembly today. We had an indoor field trip today. We had Mad Science visit our school. The children learned about, matter: solid, water and gas properties. The presentation was interactive and very engaging. "Jupiter Josh" was funny and captured the children's attention.
The children are seen here enjoying the wind presentation using toilet paper.
The children had a great time during our Mad Science presentation!
Thank You Parent Board for sponsoring our inhouse field trip.
We were invited by our friends from room 1 and 2 to join them for music with Fr. Riz.
We had a great week and had many learning opportunities. We are looking forward to end of the year activities. We will be sending out information on those activities next week.
We had a very busy and productive week.
We started our week by finishing up our storybook story, "The Tug Of War". The children truly enjoyed the story. They learned about a clever turtle and her jungle friends.
This week we celebrated "Mother's Day". The children worked so hard on different Mother's Day activities.
We had an invitation from our friends in room 2 to watch them release their butterflies.
Releasing of the butterflies. Ms. Chyanne helped the butterflies venture out into their new world.
In this picture we are seen here dancing and shaking our heavy cream into butter. The children enjoyed shaking and dancing.
Our Open House was a success. Children and parents alike enjoyed eating the fresh butter we made.
Thursday we had a wonderful " Mother's Day" celebration. The children sang and enjoyed some refreshments. Our moms work so hard, it was a honor to host an appreciation brunch for all of our moms.
The children gave a flower to Virgin Mary,as part of May Crowning. Thank You parents for your participation. Our 1st May Crowning was received with enthusiasm. We hope we can continue this tradition in the future.
On Friday we ended the week with our May Crowning. We recited the rosary and processed to the church as a whole group.
Thank You to all of our wonderful moms!
May God Bless You and Happy Mother's Day!!!
In Language Arts the children are enjoying the storybook, "The City Mouse and the Country Mouse". We have been talking about the differences between city life and and a life in the country.
We worked on proper letter formation with our names. At home, please reinforce proper letter formation whenever possible.
A newsletter was sent home to remind you of the proper process. Please refer to that for proper technique. Reminder....habits formed now (both good and bad) will persist for years to come.
We continue to introduce and reinforce the 5 senses.
On this day we focused on the sense of "touch".
We introduced a new sensory bin for the children to explore.
Playdough is a great job for little fingers!!!
Playdough helps refine small motor skills.
Developing fine motor skills is critical to developing writing skills.
We had study buddies this week!
The children danced to a bunny song and we made an Easter Bunny art project with help from our study buddies.
Preparing for Easter fun.
The children have had many different experiences and lessons this week. We continue to work on The 5 Senses. Talk with your child and review the 5 Senses with them. Next week we will be having a tasting experiment activity. As summer is quickly approaching, please encourage your children to play outside. The days are longer and it stays lighter later. Whenver possible, limit electronics and encourage activities as a family. Games and outdoor activities help children with their large motor skills. Puzzles, beading, tongs, art projects and coloring help your child with development of their fine motor skills.
Reminder: No School on Monday, Match 27, 2017 - Staff Development Day
