Activity 1- Connor and Lauren practiced writing the letters j and w. We used the worksheet Printing Practice - worksheet 6 from the website http://www.worksheetuniverse.com/
Activity 2- The 2nd activity used another worksheet from http://www.worksheetuniverse.com/ Connor and Lauren completed The Color Black worksheet. They colored the pictures and traced the word black. They also wrote the word black all by themselves today!
Activity 3- Connor and Lauren did a cut and paste activity. They colored a banana, pear, lemon, apple, and grapes and then cut the fruit out and glued it in the correct basket. (The baskets were labeled with color words - yellow, green and purple).
Project- Our theme this week is the Ocean. I am using the websites, www.prekinders.com/themes.htm
and www.pre-kpages.com/ocean.html These two websites have wonderful, rhymes, projects, and math and literacy enrichment activities. I found the idea for our project off of www.pre-kpages.com/ocean.html The project title is Coffee Filter Painted fish. I had Connor and Lauren paint a coffee filter with watercolor paint. After the coffee filter was dry I made a small fish template traced it onto the coffee filter and cut out fish templates ( I ended up with 4 fish/filter - you could make just one big fish too). I also cut triangles out of tin foil. Connor and Lauren glued their fish to a piece of blue construction paper and paste the triangle tin foil pieces onto their fish. Then they glued 1 googly eye onto each fish. The end product looked like fish swimming in the ocean.
