Beach and Pool Day!

Today will be the last day of assignments! I am so sorry that we had to end on this note, but I feel confident that next year will be a smooth transition to Pr-k4! Things to work on this summer are just the basics. Social – emotional independence is key in preschool! Your child should be able to use the bathroom without assistance, clothe themselves, put on jackets, open their own snack, begin to problem solve without adult supervision, share, basic manners, and play cooperatively with others! Knowing how to write their name, number/ shape/ letter recognition, simple patterns, and counting 1-20 will help, but it is not needed in order to be successful for next year.

Thank you to all the parents/ grandparents/ caregivers who helped assist in learning during this stressful time. I have said this many times before, but the children in this years class are a great group of kids, and hold a special place in my heart. Good Luck next year and have fun this summer!

Zoom meeting tomorrow for our last class goodbye!

Writing: Draw a picture of something special from this year. Be prepared to share your picture during tomorrows zoom meeting.
Math: Make ocean animals out of different shapes using play-doh.
Science: Salt water experiment

“Camping Pokey”
Sung to: “Hokey Pokey”
You put your marshmallow in,
You take your marshmallow out,
You put your marshmallow in
and you shake it all about,
You do the campfire pokey,
and you turn yourself around,
And that’s what it’s all about, hey!

Substitute “marshmallow” with hot dog, apple, popcorn, and anything else that you can roast over the campfire.

Literacy: A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee

Fine motor: Create a forest animal, such as a bear, with play-doh.

Writing: Using your name card or writing your name on a piece of paper, collect leaves, flowers, or sticks and glue them to the letter in your name.

There is always something new to be discovered when you are exploring the outdoors. The majority of the time we spend outside together is unstructured playtime. This is a great activity to add into your outdoor time to teach you little learners about nature! #nature #craft #activity #preschool #kindergarten #nameactivity #kids #mrsjonescreationstation
Art: Marshmallow process art: Put a large marshmallow on a stick and use it as a paint brush. (You may want to leave a few marshmallows out over night so they harden).  Use red, yellow and orange paint to paint a  fire.  Optional- Add brown paper logs at the bottom to make it look like a campfire.
Science: Explore the dirt and mud around your yard. What lives in the dirt? What animals like the mud? What happens to dirt when you add water? What happens to mud when it stays in the sun light? What can you build with dirt? Can you make a mud pie?

Hello! I hope you all had a great weekend! This week I wanted to focus more on a camping theme since summer is right around the corner, and I have been hearing a lot of feedback that many are already pretending to camp!





Literacy: Pete the Cat Goes Camping

Play: Build a campsite! You will need a tent (or blanket fort), a fire, a flashlight, some food to eat, blankets, pillow, and a sleeping bag. Add other props that are appropriate. If you do not have something, have your child make it from things around the house.

Writing: Take a walk outside or explore your yard. Take paper and crayons with you and record observations of any wildlife, plants, bugs, or cloud that you see.

Art: Make various size fish out of construction paper. Make some that are large, and some that are small. Use different colored construction paper. Use this as one of your camping props.

 Math: Sort the fish you made. Sort by color, size, and shape.

Science: How to make DIY S’mores in a Solar Oven Pizza Box 

(This experiment is really fun!)
