Week 18 - "M" Weeks (two 4-day weeks)
There were two weeks devoted to the letter M. We used the first week to make monkey puppets, read about mice, make moose using our footprint and hands, and brought out the menu for the kitchen center. We talked about movement and muscles, memories from the past and mixing colors.
Week 2 of M week was a whole week devoted to music. We made maracas, guitars and a xylophone using jars with varying amounts of water. We danced to jazz music, read about and listened to music played by an orchestra, and played with a variety of instruments during center time. EVERYONE in pre-k loves music!! We finished off the week with a graphing activity connected with our "cooking project" of milkshakes.
We also made it outside quite a few times this week and enjoyed the playground slides as well as sleds. If you have any extra sleds (even if they are not in perfect condition) please send them in. We are sharing 4; two of which are breaking quickly. .
