Our theme this week was "The Week of The Young Child/Hop-a-thon" and we focused on the letter Z, number 23 and we revisited the color purple and the shape oval.
Our school is also getting ready for our Art Show. all the projects are completed I will take pictures and show you our super cool "Garden". It's getting exiting! This weeks little preview.... our Birdfeeders!
Our question of the week was "Why do you like to come to school?"
For the week of the young child, we painted with our color of the week, purple! To make it even more interesting, we didn't paint with a paintbrush, but with a piece of purple ribbon!
When we worked on our number activities, we practiced writing the number and word for the number 23.
I made these worksheets that reinforces the one to one concept. The kids practice writing the number and have to color a square for each picture that they see.For our letter activities, we used our handwriting sheet for the letter Zz from this book.
This book has great pages for helping the kids work on the letter recognition of both the capital and the lowercase versions of the letter, and they are always a little different, which is great!
We made Zip It Art! It's mess free for the kids, which is always a plus (not so mess free for me, as you can see by my arm. But we got to have fun shaking the bags and the discovering the colors that were created when our red, yellow and blue paint mixed. I chose those colors because i love color mixing, you could do this with any color paints and it would still be cool!
When I hung them up I left the cotton balls in and hung the whole thing up in the bag. I think it makes for a cool presentation.
The kids colored a zebra picture with a key. This worksheet came from education.com
Here are the words we came up with this week!
To celebrate getting to the end of the alphabet, we made our own class alphabet book!
