Letter W Week

Letter W Week!
Worms, Wild Things, Wishy Washy!
Wow!  What a week!

The literacy center featured Mrs. Wishy Washy.

We acted out the story....

over and over again!

The children had a blast putting the animals in the "mud".

Their favorite activity was making these "Mrs. Wishy Washy Masks".

Our literacy center also featured whales.

We constructed whales in art  

and estimated whales in math!

We also discussed worms.
This was really interesting and fun!

We read several books about worms.  
One of the books we read was a non fiction book titled, Wonderful Worms.

We wrote non fiction facts about worms 
and worked on worm observation science activities.

We gathered data.

The children worked on a worm seriation activity for homework.

Then, we ATE worms!

Not real worms Silly!

Worm dirt!

We also talked about the book, Where The Wild Things Are.

We acted out parts of the story

and discussed the book!

We made wild things in the art center!
"Let the wild rumpus begin!"

We graphed....
"Have you ever been sent to your room for being naughty?"

Nope!  Not me!  Never!
We also worked on fractions using watermelons!

On Friday we had our Pajama Party!
It was a great week.

Next week Letter X!

Letter N Week

Letter N Week
The literacy centered featured Nests
and the book, My Nest is Best.

We studied real bird nests and 

wrote non fiction facts about nests!

 We encourage developmental writing!  
Aren't they doing a great job with this skill!

We read number words and added eggs to the nests!

In our art center we created these amazing bird nests.  

Look at this cool block/nest structure!

"Chirp, chirp"

"Tweet, tweet."

We ate bird nests for snack!  Aren't they NIFTY?

We also discussed Newspapers!

We collaged with Newspapers!

We illustrated our own Newspapers!

We ate nachos for snack!

We investigated Newts!

We used our special embossing powder to give the newts a really cool texture!
(The children LOVE this stuff!  You should try it sometime!)

We wrote non fiction facts about newts!

In our math center we did several activities using nickels
including probability, counting and estimating!

We explored different types of noodles and constructed 
a tally graph to show how many we each had.

We finished off the week with Night Time stories and songs!

This week was awesome!  
Next week we will talk about Letter W 
wear our Pajamas to school for our Pajama Party!
Woo Hoo!
