We wrapped up our unit on frogs today and then learned a little more about eggs. We read the story A Frog in the Bog by Jean Rankin and practiced recalling the beginning, middle and end of a story- students were super story experts yet again!
During centers, students explored hopping like a frog, eating like a frog, and feeling what it would be like living in a frog habitat. We also had a math center where students focused specifically on writing/identifying numbers 1-10.
During the afternoon we read In the Nest and talked more about what kinds of animals come from eggs. Then we practiced being scientists and made some hypotheses during inter-eggs-ting eggs-periments. Click here to learn how to do the experiments at home!
The Easter Bunny visited Kozy Heart today! Our preschoolers and toddlers made some eggstra special "Easter baskets" and were treated to a fun egg hunt in the backyard.
In the morning during our literacy lesson, we reviewed the three parts of a story: beginning, middle and end. We then read Max's Chocolate Chicken by Rosemary Wells, and drew pictures to show the parts of the story.
During stations, we did some fun Easter crafts- Easter cards with stamps, textured painting easter pictures, and egg carton bunnies. The egg carton bunnies were a big hit!
We hope you all have an eggciting three day weekend, and a nice holiday if you celebrate Easter. See you on Monday!
The rain couldn't keep our cel-egg-bration down today in the Kozy Heart preschool room! We started the morning with our circle time and read The Easter Egg, by Jan Brett. The story is about Hoppi the rabbit, who helps a bird in need by keeping her egg warm until it hatches. We then made our own hatching easter eggs, and even practiced keeping them warm!
Today we also opened the Kozy Heart beauty salon! It was time to give our friends the Grassheads a nice trim. Check out the students' handiwork... there were some very edgy 'dos!
In the afternoon we completed our Easter-themed math and science centers!
