I am behind on a few weeks of posts and since my lesson plan for next week I thought I would do a little catching up today.
So let's go a few weeks back and talk about one of my favorite Author/Illustrators Mr. Eric Carle. We started off our week by talking about why God made everything in the world different, why he made us different, and how boring the world would be if everything and everyone all looked the same. To help illustrate this t we watched a video of the book The Mixed-Up Chameleon. The poor chameleon wanted to be like the other animals, but in the end he got all mixed up and realized he was better off just looking like himself. After watching the story everyone created their own mixed up chameleon by placing colorful squares of tissue paper all over a piece of tracing paper and when the paper was covered they cut out the outline of a chameleon and put all of the different pieces together.
On Tuesday we started working on a brand new skill called ordinal counting or ordinal numbers. This includes first, second, third, etc. We read the story 10 Little Rubber Ducks and as a class we worked on coloring in fishies based on the ordinal position I gave.
On Wednesday we continued working on ordinal numbers and we colored in a choo choo train based on the ordinal position I gave.
Friday was a very special day for us because it just so happened to be the 100th Day of School.
Friday was another special day because we were celebrating Grandparent's Day! This day start off with 3K and 4K singing songs to their Grandparent's/Special Friends, then everyone gets to enjoy a special treat, followed up by a grand tour of the classrooms. I was so proud of my friends for singing so nice and for showing off our little classroom.
Since this week was full of 100th Day parties and Grandparent Musicals we did not do jobs as we typically do. Instead of each table completing a different task we all completed the same things at the same time.
So for jobs this week we made and Elephant E
And we continued working on finding the missing letters and placing them in the correct box
Even though this was a short yet fun week I can honestly say I was worn our from all of our partying!
