Lessons and activities for the week:
Blocks- The student’s name cards will be available in block center. Students are invited to write their names using blocks, discussing the lines in each letter of their name (straight, curved, etc.).
Pretend Play- Pretend Play will be transformed into "circle time". Students can take turns being the teacher and leading their friends in circle time activities.
Art- Various size shapes from construction paper will be cut out and students are invited to use the shapes to create their bodies. After gluing the shapes together, or to a piece of paper, children can use writing utensils to add additional details (hair, patterns on clothes, etc.).
Science- Students are invited to use magnifying glasses to explore fingerprints, skin, hair, etc.
Math- Small figures will be added to the math center. Students can sort and then count the figures and then use them for imaginative play.
Library- Students are incouraged to read a book with a friend. One child could read to the other or they could look at a book together.
Writing- Students will be able to play a matching game where they match pictures of the students in the class with that students name.
Sensory- Sand and water, or play-doh.
