As we were waiting for every one to arrive, each of the children was given an egg carton in which each of the twelve sections was filled with something that they needed to find a match with. There were lady bugs, pom poms, little cars, dinosaurs, ninja soldiers, etc. One thing, these children can do is match things. When we do it again, we will discuss colors, numbers, differences, but for this time, just matching was good.
The picture below is the calendar. This is to help them learn the months, the days and the years. We sing the song with the tune of the Adamms family These are the words: Clap Clap--Days of the Week (clap, Clap) There's Sunday, and there's Monday, There's Tuesday and there's Wednesday, there's Thursday and there's Friday, and then there's Saturday (clap, clapp) Today Joey was in charge of the calendar and his job was to put the three on Tuesday, use the pointer to show the days, then the month.
Now, here are our little "monsters" who did not know the rules for preschool. The children helped with the rules and I wrote them , then had them colored, and put them on the wall. As you can see, most of them liked the color "blue"
I think that we accomplished what we needed to today. this will be a fun school year for me and I hope it will be for the children, But, I have to admit, I was just plain tired when the last child had his/her shoes and socks on, their backpacks collected, and their cookies for their moms or dads, in their hands.
Thanks for this chance to be with your children. I love teaching PreK!!
I would love to hear from you mom's about any suggestions that would make this blog more informative for you.
