The preschoolers started their Monday by coloring a picture of the letter M.
During circle time we talked about how we get/travel from here to there. Many answers were shared like driving cars, motorcycles, boats, airplanes, etc. We also talked about what we would have to do if there were no cars. How would we get around? We decided that we would have to walk and it would take us much longer to get from place to place if we did that. We also read a story called “The Car Book” and saw the many different kinds of cars that take us from place to place.
We also introduced our letter of the week, M. We looked at our ABC board and found words that start with M and practiced making the M sound.
Our project for the day was to use car tracks to do some painting. As we painted, we talked about the different tracks that were made by the cars and noticed that the cars had 4 wheels but only made 2 tracks.
Our centers of the day were:
-Car race to a letter (preschoolers used a ramp with their cars and saw what letter their car landed on)
-Driving cars through a maze
-Building the letter M with playdough and using cars to trace the letter M
-Writing center (letter M dobbing or free draw)
Our Jesus time for today was talking about Jesus journey into Jerusalem. We talked about the way Jesus entered and how the people celebrated his coming by a parade. We had our own parade (just like those in Jesus time) and used our voices to praise God! Ask your preschooler if they can tell you about our lesson!
Remember book orders are due on Friday, March 4!
See many of you tomorrow!
