Week of June 1st! 

I cannot believe that it is June already! This week I will be posting all activities for the week.  I was talking to a few parents and with the last 2 weeks upon us, it seems that this was the best consensus for finishing up the school year.  I am post some packets and activities that you can do as your own pace. I will continue to post stories for each day as well as other things that I come upon! The BEST thing you can do at this time, is get the kids outside, let them play, run, ride bikes, and be active!!! 

Activities for Week that you can do at your own pace-

  1. Number Practice- Numbers110
  2. This activity is definitely more suited for the older kids heading to kindergarten- it focuses on sentence building and practicing with writing; ReaditTraceitPasteit
  3. Beach Lesson Plans- BeachthemedpreschoollessonplansFREEBIE
  4. June Lessons (there are 4 weeks here so you can pick and choose and use what you want over the next few weeks)     JuneLessons
  5. Technology Lesson Plans from Mrs. Grant for the older children who attended tech class with her-

I hope you are all well and I miss you very much! If you finished the alphabet, you can look around Starfall and choose any activity you would like. You might want to do the colors or numbers again!

  • They also have a community helpers mini reader that they can practice reading and recognizing community helper words.

Literacy-  Can you name some community helpers and have your grown up write a list of what you come up with? Write the words big and have your child practice tracing the letters in the words with a crayon or marker.

Use anything you have at home to make a pretend community helper work zone (build a hospital, a post office, a police station, whatever you can come up with).

 

Week of May 18th

This week, please refer to Packet #1 for activities.  I have posted the weekly pdf file but you also have a copy of it in packet #1.  Young 3 and 4 year old friends, please do not feel inclined to do all of what is on that schedule.  Most of the online learning that I am pulling is really geared towards older pre-k children. 

Click below for this week’s schedule- you also have a copy. Each day has a theme to it with additional learning activities in the packets to work on letters, sounds, numbers, and rhyming.  The packet activities are probably geared more towards are older pre-k friends while the actual schedule of at home learning can be used by all.  

REFER TO WEEK 8 SCHEDULE IN YOUR PACKET- Click link below and scroll through for Week 8.

Friday, May 15th- Read Aloud by Mrs. Lewis;Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

 

Some of our favorite letter videos that we watched at school-

 

Today’s feature activites are everything LETTERS! Build letters out of sticks, find letters, find the letters in your name around your house, write letters on paper and hop from letter to letter, saying the letters as you go. 

Older Pre-K friends, spell out small words like H O P ( one letter on each paper) and then jump from letter to letter, spelling the word and then saying it.  Spell out your name, jump from letter to letter saying and spelling your name. 

Something fun you can do with names- use tape (masking tape if you have it) to make your childs name on some white paper.  Have your child paint all around the tape letters.  Once the paint dries, carefully peel the tape off to see their names.  Water colors might work best but you can use regular paint or even bingo dabbers if you have them. Instead of all tape letters, you can also cut out block letters and just tape those onto paper and then do same- paint all around them and then peel off.  You can do whole name or even just initials.

Letter/Sounds Activity substitution for our younger friends– instead of the sound do-a-dot paper, can you come up with a list of things you might take camping with you? You can draw pictures or have your grown up write them for you and then you can trace the words.  How many things did you come up with to take camping? Can you write or trace the number?

Happy Friday!! My internet was done last night and just came back on. It is very difficult to update the website on my phone. It is not phone friendly. I will get the story YouTube link posted by 10:30! In the meantime, you can still access today’s activities. 

 

Friday’s Bo

Friday’s Book

Thursday- Book; How a Seed Grows by Helene Jordan

This isn’t the most exciting story but I wanted to read it to give you another fun option for maybe planting some beans with the kids.  Using eggshells can be a great way for the kids to be able to really see the way a seed grows and gets roots.  

YouTube Links-  I posted 2 links today.  One is me reading and the other is someone else.  I did this because I kind of summarized some parts when I read so if you want to try and do the egg shell planting with your child, you may need to watch the 2nd reading so you have all the instructions. 

This is just a fun video to watch about seeds becoming plants!

A fun activity, if you have the supplies! You could use rice or popcorn kernels for the seeds and spaghetti for the roots

Parts of a Flower from Growing in Pre K | Kindergarten science ...

Wednesday- Books- Growing Vegetable Soup and Flower Garden

2 books today, because they are both kind of short!

Additional Learning/Art- If you could make any kind of soup you wanted, what would you put in it? Write or draw about it.  Mrs. Lewis would make soup full of chocolate brownies, cookies, and pizza!!!
