Show and tell ususally comes first so that we can settle down. Here Sammy is showing us his Star Wars Angry Bird mat.
Angry birds!! AND Star Wars!! Are a big hit with Hyrum
We pasted the poem to the bottom of the page, first, because the kids tend to put everything very close to the bottom, on their own.
We talked about the short sound of vowels and worked on this sheet to see what they could do. The younger ones had a little trouble, but the older ones did very well
At the end of our day, Jo Dee read two books to the kids. These are pop out books that hold their interest and are not only entertaining but teach.
Today ( thursday) we started the day with a deck of playing cards. We divided the cards into suits, two red, two black. When that was done, I had them start one suit at a time with the King, Queen, all the way down to the ace. It was interesting to hear them talk about the King is higher than the ten, or jack, etc. It shows that some parents are playing with their children and helping them to recognize what numbers are higher are of more value than the others. Good going, parents!!
Today was May Day and although we do not typically celebrate it as in past years, our preK had a good time making their own version of the May Pole and dancing around the one holdingit. They liked wearing the May Day crown, too.
It was a busy day, as always and a Happy May Day was had by all. they got to dance and wave those ribbons around and have a good time.
On to the MONTH of MAY and graduation.
