Wow! Talk about a great day in school! How fun is playing with baby chicks for the "Animals in Spring" theme? With the bigger preschoolers we were able to sit in the kiddy pool and let the baby chicks explore.
"Animals in Spring" pack for more information. We also did a group reading of "Mouse's First Spring" a book with many little words that the preschoolers can already read. The bonus is that they each got to keep a copy of the book. In math we learned about the nickel. In preschool it's purely introduction and they love it. We sang our pocket song to "Shortning Bread". It goes like this: "Which coin is in my pocket, pocket? What's in my pocket worth __ cents? (then they guess what it is and we continue) It's a shiny ____, _____. It's a ____ worth ___ cent." The kids love it!
