We had so much fun in school today! We talked about how to have a healthy body by exercising, eating healthy, drinking water, and washing our hands. We practiced reading our letter K Amazing Action Alphabet book, naming our colors and our letter sounds.

We had a great day talking all about how germs make us sick and how we can get rid of them to stay healthy. We talked about washing hands, flushing the potty, coughing in our elbows, mopping the floor and putting leftover food in the fridge. We read lots of books today and had so much fun looking at the pictures of the silly looking germs. We learned the letter K today with karate kicks. We each got a sticker for our shirts and talked about healthy body exercise. The kids really loved making healthy "food" in our play kitchen. They cooked and sorted all the food and dishes. We also made 3D shapes out of paper (they have cute germ pictures on them, find them in the tot pack) and built with blocks (as 3D shape introduction). It was a fantastic day.

We had a great day in preschool today learning all about letter K. We were able to do some one-on-one reading time working on the skills each child specifically needed. We also played on Starfall.com, on the iPad with the teach me app and did the art project from the Amazing Action Alphabet for the letter K. Today was an introduction day to 3D shapes. We used the language: "flat shapes" and "block shapes".

We had such a blast learning all about Dr. Seuss today. One of the little girls immediately piped up about taking her younger brother to the doctor to get shots, it was so cute. We read quite a few Dr. Seuss books and CJ was even able to read them "The Cat in the Hat". We had a blast eating hard boiled green eggs and bacon for snack (that's like Green Eggs and Ham, right?). We also really enjoyed playing with Oobleck and coloring our Dr. Seuss pages. We learned some really important reading strategies today and you can check out the preschool pack to find them (this pack is free, so be sure to stop by and get it today!). Since Dr. Seuss is a great time to focus on readings skills, we talked all about what to do when we get to a word we don't know. There are fun reading strategy cards you can print and practice while reading. What a fantastic day of school!

We always have so much fun talking about Dr. Seuss around his birthday each year. We read oodles of stories by Dr. Seuss and played on Seussville.com on the SmartBoard. We started making Popsicle stick "Thing 1 and Thing 2" but ran out of time to complete the project.

We had so much fun learning letter R and all about vehicles. We played with all the road signs and made our own steering wheels. They loved driving around all the shapes on the floor (made of painters tape). While driving on each shape they walked the outline and said the name of the shape over and over again. We also got to "drive our race cars" by saying /r-r-r/ and running around the cones set up as a track. For art we enjoyed painting with cars!

We had a great day talking all about wheels again on Thursday. We've been reviewing all the letters we've learned so far and all the kids are doing so great! We sang the "Wheels on the Bus" what felt like 100 times and they loved it! We also played in the dirt with the construction trucks, worked on using shapes to draw different cars and played the piano on the SmartBoard practicing Hot Cross Buns. It was such a great day!
