We had a great week with the letter Kk. Here’s a snapshot…
On Tuesday our theme was Knights and Kings. In morning centers, the kids made a king out of the letter K, they drew cards and traced the medieval words in a quick kit, and they finished the pattern by cutting and gluing. In afternoon centers the kids used pop its, put beads on the letter K, wrote on dry erase boards, and started a special project just for you for king and queen day! We ended the day by putting together puzzles and building with LEGO while we continued to work on our special projects.
On Wednesday our theme was Kites and Kindness. In morning centers, the kids made kites, counted and clipped clothes pins on kites with numbers on them, and cut ‘kite strings’ up to kites. In afternoon centers, the kids worked on counting and letter puzzles and finished up the special projects for king and queen day. We ended the day by doing a tulip write the room. Their paper had a 10 frame on it and the number, the kids had to find the tulip with that same 10 frame and then write the number 4 times.
On Thursday we celebrated Earth Day by Kicking recycling! In the morning the kids watched a Blippie video about garbage pickup and recycling and then we all went outside and kicked the recycling and cleaned up our earth. The kids always have fun learning about recycling and kicking that trash! In afternoon centers, the kids worked on an earth day look and find, they started an earth day color by letter, and they played a game where they had to match cards around the room that showed ways we can help our earth. We ended the day with art. The kids glued blue and green squares to make the earth and then glued a heart on top. Those turned out cute and came home in their folders.
We’ll be talking about the letter Qq next week. It’s our last letter before we spend the month of May reviewing all the letters. As always, let me know if you have any questions.
I’m really looking forward to seeing all of you at King and Queen Day on Tuesday!
