Practice, practice, practice

From now til the end of the school year, we will be practicing what we have learned Today, we worked on many things:

At centers today, each of the children were able to accomplish a different thing . Patterning,and  matching
with different things but accomplishing the same thing.
Then we worked with numbers and had to fill in the amount that was indicated at the beginning of the line.  They all did very well

We took this time to have our show and tell  Cooper brought his dart
 Brigham brought his fire truck and we talked about all of the things on the truck that help the firemen save lives and houses.
 One of the favorite things to do is the balance game where they have to balance and at the same time hit the colors that the little voice commands them.  They have REALLY made progress in this

When we went to the kitchen for snacks, I showed them something that they really squealed and laughed about.  I took hot water from the kettle  and poured it into the plastic bottles and then quickly removed the water and put on the cap.  First came the crackling then the big pops when the bottles started to curl up

 The pops got a little loud for the girls
 But the lack of oxygen sure collapsed the bottles
When we came back from free time, we worked on sight words, spelled a few, then read the books that we have been reading the past couple of days to learn the sight words.  One thing they really like is when we try to find the hidden pictures.

Another good day at preK.
