Pre-K Highlights | April 09, 2018


Weekly Theme: Space
Weekly Letter: Ss
Weekly Number: 16

We hope you enjoyed your spring break and we are so glad to be back!

This week we will learn all about Outer Space. We will learn the names of the 8 planets, facts about our moon, discuss the job of an astronaut, and watch videos of astronauts in space. We will also create a mini reader planet book, make a space craft, play a space matching game, and sing songs about the planets.

This week we will learn our last letter Ss. We have saved this letter for last because it is the hardest letter to properly form for most students. We will learn how to properly form this letter using different tools like play-doh, beads, sand, pencils and markers. We will create a list of words that start with S for our word wall. Students will also have fun “shaking their sillies out” during movement time.

Our number of the week is 16. Students will learn how to recognize what this number looks like as well as discover what a group of 16 things looks like. We will practice how to form this number and how to count up to 16.
