Mrs. Kelli’s Preschool Classroom
This week, we focused on the letter R & had our Harvest Party!
Books we read:
Dear God, Why Did You Put the Rainbow in the Sky?
Walter’s Wonderful Web
We colored a letter R red for our ABC page
We matched ripped paper to the colors of the rainbow to form a rainbow picture
We used a salt tray to write shapes, letters, etc., to reveal a rainbow underneath
We made a robot out of legos
We worked on patterning
We used play doh & Halloween cookie cutters to make fun shapes
We navigated through a “spider web” to use our fine motor skills to fetch spiders
We sorted Halloween erasers
We threaded spiders on a post
We played an “eyeball” relay-holding a ping pong ball (eyeball) on a spoon and trying not to drop it
**Special things this week**
We did a walking rainbow experiment. We put red, yellow, & blue water in 3 jars, leaving one empty jar in between colors. Then we placed dry paper towels in each. We watched the paper towels absorb the colors, and eventually mix the red & yellow to make orange, the yellow and blue to make green, and the blue and red to make purple. It was really fun to watch our rainbow form throughout the week!
On Wednesday & Thursday, we had our Harvest parties! We did the fun Halloween themed centers mentioned above, had a blast doing “Trunk or Treat”, had a snack, and decorated our own little pumpkins. I loved seeing the kids all dressed up…they looked adorable!
Remember, there is no school on November 2 & 3 next week. We are on Fall Break!
Until Next Week,
