During our morning work time, the children found picture words that start with letter ‘G.’ They also tasted red, green, and yellow apples to record on our graph the color that they liked the best. During this time, they took turns cutting apples to make our applesauce. They did a wonderful job with this cooking activity, and they had so much fun!
During our Morning Meeting, we continued to focus on the letter ‘G’ and ‘H,’ and we discussed ‘tall’ and ‘short’ letters or letters that go only downstairs or upstairs and downstairs in words. We read and discussed the book “The Apple Tree,” and we totaled our apple tasting graph. Most of the children liked the granny smith apples the best!
Small group with me: I painted their hand to be a tree trunk, and they used their fingers to make red and green apples. They counted each apple amount, wrote about how many they have of each color, and they recorded this on their sheet. They also counted to find the total amount.
Literacy: The children completed a letter ‘H’ book.
Math: The children worked on number puzzles together.
Literacy: The children put the correct letters in tall and short boxes to complete words that start with “H.”
Literacy/Science: The children completed their own apple life cycle project, and they used sight words to write about each stage.
I am very sorry because we finished Learning Centers around 2:48, and I was not able to pass out the school newsletter that we received this afternoon. Next week is Homecoming Week, and we will have special dress up days. Please send in a canned food item for each day that your child participates. These can be celebrated as the following:
Monday: Mismatch Day
Tuesday: Pajama Day
Wednesday: Neon Day
Thursday: Dress up as your favorite character in a book, movie, or television show.
Friday: Show your APA pride with lots of blue!
Have a wonderful weekend!
