Lots going on this week! 4th and 5th explored how trades have changed over time during their winter journey. Students learned about how architecture, blacksmithing and ranching have changed over time. Thanks to @clbarchitects @customirondesign and Meade Ranch for helping us connect our learning to our community!
Time to think Spring!! Shop this BRAND NEW rainbow bundle in my TpT shop. I had so much fun designing this pack and am so excited to share it with you! This specific group of activities is geared toward Pre-K kiddos and is perfect for any upcoming Spring/St. Patrick's Day literacy centers. TpT link in profile.
Friday is my double day with one PreK class so we do small group rotation to different fine art stations. Seeing these two draw the animals on their own brought me so much joy this morning! I love teaching PreK, they really just go all in and try! #HappyArtTeacher#preklife#prekindergarten
Repetition does not have to be Repetitious!
Another way to practice sight words, in a fun way.
I found watercolor paper and watercolor paint to work the best. Write your words using a white crayon on a small piece of paper (about 2" x 3"). This is so the word can easily be found without frustration. I used a pen to make a small dot on the upper left side, so I could easily identify which side had the writing. I chose only two words that were completely different, since my early learner is just starting with sight words. I also provided a starting pile where I wrote what the options would be and reviewed them prior to starting. I informed him the word would either be "of" or "play". This helped him focus on this particular words while hunting for them in the painting, and served as a prompt. *The same process with the early learner making the piles independently, once the word is visible. **This may be a good way for learners having difficulty distinguishing between similar words like (the, they), where they have to focus on the last letter to determine the correct word. ***Another adaptation to this is to focus a particular word or number, that your little learner is having difficulty with, and alternate it with a number (would, 18), so there is no confusion between similar words.
Shi’s teacher took this today at school and I couldn’t love it any more. She said “I want to be an artist when I grow up.” Who knew. She always tells me she wants to be a cheerleader when she grows up 🤦🏼♀️ 👩🏼🎨 🎨 #shilentbutdeadly#prekindergarten#artiste
