Jack-o’-lanterns

We mixed red and yellow paint to make orange pumpkins in the art center. Then we drew shapes to make eyes, noses, and mouths. We made lots of different kinds of faces on our jack-o’-lanterns!


Centers

Centers is one of our favorite times of the day! Here’s what we’ve been up to:


Centers

Valentine’s Day/Play Day

What a fun day doing Valentine activities and playing with our fifth grade buddies! We also had a Valentine’s Flower Shop in our Housekeeping Center this week, so we got to practice buying and selling flowers!  


100th Day of School

We enjoyed working with the number 100 in many ways on the 100th day of school! We did 100 board puzzles.   We counted by 10s to 100 using fruit pouch tops.   We painted 100 gumballs.   We put 100 dinosaurs and unicorns on a 100 board.   We worked together to write 100 words.   We brought in collections of 100 things!  


Building Numbers

We have been working on showing numbers in different ways. We used mini erasers to make different combinations of the same number. This is an important skill that gets us ready for addition!  


What Does Math Look Like?

Halloween Activities

We made words with candy corn letters and matched letters on a cauldron. We used Halloween stickers to inspire our writing. What a fun month!  


Dot Cards

In math, we have been counting dots and comparing quantities. Which has more? What does equal mean? We learned to play Match Up and Top It with dot cards. In Match Up, players had to find cards of equal quantities. In Top It, the player with the greater number of dots got to keep the cards. Math games are a great way to practice taking turns and being a good sport!
