Today we started our Superhero Week. We read Atomic Ace: He's Just My Dad by Jeff Weigel and talked about how there can be real life superheroes. Some of the real superheroes in our lives: mom, dad, doctors, police, firefighters, and paramedics. The students discussed how real life superheroes do things to help and sometimes even save other people.
For art we went outside to do some Spiderman "web" painting. We used cooked spaghetti noodles dipped in tempera paint to throw at our evil blank paper villain. In another station, students played with Ivan Ooze's ooze in a sensory tub. We used recycled crepe paper, water, and ivory soap to make our ooze.
This week's centers
This weeks literacy centers are:
ABC sort- students match lowercase letters to uppercase letters in a sorting tray.
Alphabet Soup- draw out letter tiles and put in ABC order.
Literacy Journal Entries-This will very day to day. We started with self-portraits.
Superhero Story-Each day we will add a new part to our stories.
Today on the Kozy Heart farm we are learning about sheep! We read the book From Lamb to Sheep, by Jillian Powell, to find out about the life cycle of sheep, and found some interesting vocabulary:
Ewe- girl sheep
Ram- boy sheep
Flock- a group of sheep
Did you know that lambs are born with long tails that are cut off after they are born? It's called docking.
We also read a book called Counting Sheep and made our own counting sheep craft to help us practice writing the numbers 1-5.
Today was a very exciting day for our March is Reading Month Book Graph! Today we reached our goal of reading 100 books during the month of March! We are so proud of all our preschoolers, and would like to thank the parents for helping all of our students be super readers! Keep up the reading at home, and see our Flickr group for a super cute picture of all the students in front of our completed graph :)
