Brrrr! What a cold week!! I hope everyone stayed warm and safe. We did get to fit in a few ocean and beach activities this week. We enjoyed the books Commotion in the Ocean by Giles Andreae, a nonfiction book about ocean animals, and Way Down Deep in the Deep Blue Sea by Jan Peck. The children painted ocean animals with watercolors and made some starfish with colored sand. We created a class mural with all our animals. We also investigated real shells in the sand table and practiced counting with some fish.
In our reading lessons we continued practicing counting syllables and we talked about how we can label objects with words. In our math lessons we continued to practice making patterns. In our writing lessons we practiced writing our names.
Next week we will continue to talk about the beach and ocean. On Friday, February 8th we will be having Pre-K beach day! Watch for a note next week with more details.
