100th Day of School

The 100th day of school is ALWAYS an exciting milestone to cross, and yet lets face it! When you work with 4 years olds, the day is just crazy and full of chaos.  I have learned over the years to embrace the chaos and KEEP THEM BUSY! Yes, I planned so many fun things for the 100th day of school. I had options to fill their excitement. 

We made super Hero capes, Painted, wrote our names in the number 100, made 100 legs for our centipede, sang songs that counted to 100 and read many books. Oh, AND we made a 100 day snack. 

ENTER.....chaos....happy chaos! 

100 day crowns and super hero capes. Each cape said 100 and they each got 100 stickers. They spread out all over the room and LOVED decorating their capes. 



Our centipede. It had 100 legs. Each child helped decorate and make patterns on legs and glue them on. 



Writing our names, ANY practice we can get.

Alphabet Journals

Alphabet Journals

Learning about letters and more importantly, phonics;  is the foundation of Pre-K. We do so many fun hands on activities with letters and letter sounds on a daily basis in my class. 

My kids LOVE to write. I made these journals and have them in a few places. 
Some I leave out for them to sort through and grab any letter they want, and others I put into a folder like a journal. That way they can grab the journal and off they go to write! 

These are also great to use for small group. After the children practice writing and finding the letter on their page, you can talk about the pictures and the sound the letter makes. 

I laminated these and leave dry erase markers, or Expo Vis-A-Vis wet erase markers out for them to use.

All About Science!


Investigating WORMS

Spring is here in FULL force, and what a better what to learn and OBSERVE than with HANDS on Science. My kids LOVED this unit about worms. We used real worms to feel and observe using our senses. They could measure and weigh them and wanted to feel them for hours. 

We then used gummy bears, which were equally a BIG hit, to measure many classroom objects, as well as compare living and non-living.
 
 I got GREAT comments such as, "They are slimy, and slippery. One peed on me."
SO MANY... W...O...R...M...S



Taking a "Closer" look!


Circle Map for students to draw what they saw. Teacher dictated. SO GREAT! 

Observation Sheet. "I saw dirt and feel slime." What do you see and feel. CLASS BOOK! They LOVED looking at
this and talking about the worms.

All About Numbers-Pre-K

Number Sorts
My students had so much fun with these number sorts. I separated each number sort into a bag and labeled the bag. Some of my students could pick two numbers and sort them own their own. They wanted to quickly grab two more and see how many they could do. 
Other students, I could easily scaffold and I would start the sort by putting the numbers on each side of the file folder. The student then would mix all of the other cards up and we looked through them together. I would help her count as she would decide which side the cards went on, 1 or 2. 



Number Puzzles

The puzzles can be cut like a square and used as matching pieces, or you can cut the puzzle piece out on each side so that the pieces fit together like a puzzle. (I took the extra time to cut mine. My kids love making puzzles.)


They had so much fun matching the monsters to the numbers. Some kids could do this very quickly, and others were able to practice counting. They played over and over again.
