On Tuesday, we were using our sense of touch! We looked at things that we can feel reading out book Our Five Senses. We then created our hand to represent our different textures that we can touch. The students did a great job listening to directions putting these hands together. We went piece by piece so they are showing their abilities to follow directions! :) We have the following on the hand: hard (gold plastic coin), soft (puff ball), sticky (tape) and smooth (a piece of a plastic dixie cup).
On Thursday, we had a busy but productive day. We did our final sense of hearing and played with some easter eggs and tried to guess what was in the easter eggs. Once we had a few guesses we counted to three and then opened it to faces that were surprised at what it was. The most common guess was jelly beans! :) Then we worked on our Five Senses Hearing sheet where we had to decide what things we could hear, and then color those things - crossing out the ones we cannot hear. Today we also learned that to make our coloring better and to make our pictures more colorful we need to use AT LEAST 5 colors when coloring. The kids before I could say anything were already starting to count out the crayons to make sure they had those FIVE different colors. I am so proud of all of my 4K students this year they are already growing so much!! Then I decided to have a little fun learning about the formation of our letter Cc. I made gak today to work on our formation of the letter Cc and work with our hands a bit -- (liquid starch and Elmer's glue). We worked on rolling it out with our hands and creating the letter Cc and then they got 1 minute of fun time with it in groups of four. Not everyone got to do today but know that they will on Monday if not today.
As well all week we have been working on our letter Cc! We have worked on forming our letter C, coloring things that begin with C, learning the sound of C and being able to identify the lower and uppercase letter Cc. The students are working very hard getting their work done and working on the formation of all of their letters. This week we created a letter C Cat - C is for Cat.
