This week in 4k we talked about Easter, the things we do on Easter, and did a lot of fun activities related to the holiday.
On Monday we painted eggs using pom poms. This was a fine motor art project, that was a little challenging at times. We had to hold the clothes pin just right, so that our pom pom wouldn't fall off. The Easter eggs turned out really cute and were decorated nicely.
This week we opened up a new dramatic play area! We have turned it into a flower shop! We are enjoying making bouquets, talking about how much our flowers cost, and buying flowers for our friends.
This week we introduced new games. Our favorite game of the classroom right now is called Mr. Mouth. It is a fine motor frog game where you need to feed the frog by flinging flies into the frogs mouth. This game is challenging but all super fun at the same time.
In discovery this week we are pretending to plant a garden. We are having a lot of fun with this as well.
In writing center we have a new pocket chart activity this week. We are matching our uppercase letters and lowercase letters using a flower pot and a flower. We think this pocket chart is "pretty". :)
This week in gym we had a blast! We had relay races with hula hoops and balls. Each team had to transport their balls from one hoop to the next. The fun part about this was getting to use a scooter to do it! We learned about the different ways we can ride on these scooters. We had lots of laughs and smiles with these scooters, we will definitely be playing more fun games with these in the future.
In art on Tuesday we used brightly colored eggs to write our name! Each egg had a letter from our name on them. They turned out cute! In writing center on Tuesday, we also practiced our letters by matching them on an egg.
On Wednesday, we read "There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Chick". After we read this story, we talked about the order of events that happened. To show the order of events in the story we made "sequencing" necklaces to show what happened first, then next, and so on.
Today we also did a cute bunny project, that is proudly hanging in our classroom. :)
I hope everyone has a wonderful Spring break. Enjoy Easter and spending time with family and friends.
Just a reminder that school returns April 4th! :)
