As we gathered this morning we worked a little bit on our cutting designs It has been a week or so since we have done much cutting of fancy designs and I wanted to see just how they would do. Then it was time for opening activities, and we saluted the flag, put the numbers on the calendar and counted the days and then sang our song for "Days of the Week" Then we talked about the states that we have been learning so far. Because we are in Arizona, that is where we started and so today we looked at post cards from Arizona and I bought one for each of them. Then we moved on to California where we had been given post cards for China town, San Diego, San Francisco, the beach, Disneyland and the ocean with sail boats.
Next we talked about New Mexico and we also looked at post cards from there, moving on to Nevada. They wanted to look at all of the post cards for the states, but they have the learn the states first, then they get to see what is so important about them.
I wrote S O S on mine, next, and we talked about if we are in trouble we can write S O S and try to get help. They caught on to that concept quickly.
A good finish to a really great day at GranJan's prekinders. I enjoy these kids so much and we even had a puppet show to show their creativity.
