This week in Preschool we focused on Spring and our letter of the week was letter “X”. Some of our letter “X” words included: xylophone, x-ray, x-ray fish, tux, fox, box, mix, six and fix. Throughout the week we read both fiction and non-fiction books about Spring time. We also discussed the different signs of spring and the changes we have seen in the weather. Children were able to build their vocabulary and early literacy skills with songs and games. We have been working on recognizing and writing both our numbers and letters.

Centers included:

  • X is for xylophone & x-ray
  • Art show projects
  • Lot of spring crafts
  • Spring bingo
  • Spring stack and count game
  • Self-portraits in the spring
  • Spring roll and cover game
  • Spring early reader booklets
  • Handwriting journals
  • Making patterns

Next week we will focus on the letter “Y” and our theme will be Zoo. Throughout the week we will read various books about the zoo and zoo animals. In centers we will create a variety of zoo art projects and play hands-on math games using zoo animals. The children will be working on completing their handwriting journals as well.
