Preschool News Week of Sept. 13-16

What We've Been Learning:

Whole Group Learning:

We began our Read it Again Reading Series with the book Clifford Goes to Dog School.  Our objectives for this lesson were to recognize that print carries meaning and to distinguish print from pictures and to understand and use words for unfamiliar actions (verbs).  We discussed what the title of a story is and that the words tell us what is happening.  We also focused on the following vocabulary words: begging, heeling, walking, shaking and sitting.  We also will really be focusing on rhyming words such as dog, frog, hog and log and identifying characters and the setting in a story. 

Incredible Flexible You:  We will be reading the book Thinking With Your Eyes.  
We learned that eyes are like arrows and you can tell what someone is thinking about by looking at their eyes. 

Small Group Learning:

  • Read it Again activities:  We participate in activities in the following areas: Print Knowledge, Phonological Awareness, Vocabulary, and Narrative.  We discussed setting and characters and played a sorting game to separate outside and inside activities.  We also acted out actions for the story and played a rhyming game with the words with the -og rime.   
  • Incredible Flexible You activities: We played a "What am I looking at?" game and a "Think with your Eyes" music activity.
  • Jolly Phonics: Aa
