***********Preschool Plans for the rest of the day 😉
***Use materials you may have at home to practice working with numbers, alphabet letters, sounds and reading OR use any of the Internet resources listed below.
Our sound of the week is “v”. To decorate the v I used a violet color crayon. I happen to have violets in my garden so there is a picture for the children. They can see that the color they call purple can also be called violet. Have them tell you other words beginning with “v” sound.
I made a vampire bat that is quite easy to make. You will need an empty toilet paper roll, a brown paper bag,two small circle eyes and two fangs. Staple the roll flat at the top and the bottom. Cut a v at both ends. I folded a paper sack in half to cut wings out. You can trace your child’s handprint or cut wings free style. Glue to the back of the roll. Add eyes and fangs and staple a string to the back at the top. Since it’s a vampire bat I chose to make red fangs.
If you google Vampire Bats you’ll see some interesting pictures and videos. You can see them dining on their prey. It’s interesting but I can’t say I enjoyed it. I advise viewer discretion for your child. I found it a bit creepy to watch.
Hello everyone! Here it is the last week of April! Since today is the 100th day of school I know you will be counting to 100 with Mrs. Castillo and celebrating! So, for math this week I thought we could practice counting by twos the way we do at school. Parents, the way we do this is for you to say out loud “I say one and you say” (child says) 2. “I say 3,you say”(child says) 4 and so on. So, parents say the odd and children say the even numbers. Please assist your child if they need help. Count as far as they’d like. At school the kids really enjoy this and the practice is easy and fun! You can extend this work by showing the children what odd and even numbers are. Write small circles on paper. One dot label number 1. Two dots label 2 continue on. You can talk about and show them odd numbers don’t have partners but even numbers do. They can color odd dots green and even dots red. It makes a good visual.
I miss you all and wish you well! Mrs. White
