This week, we continued on celebrating Reading Month!
We read books and helped hand in hand in creating our face boards.
In Music, we read Pete the Cat books. These books come with catchy songs and the little ones loved it! We read Pete the Cat I Love My White Shoes and Pete the Cat and his Four Groovy Buttons.
In Art, we created Color Wheel Creatures and we painted our face boards. We chose our favorite Superhero Comic Book Character and we did our best to make them look awesome! Here are some of our photos.
In P.E., we continued to do our Chasing/Fleeing/Dodging Activities. The little ones really loved Cross the Ocean and Froggy Tag. They have certainly improved their fleeing and dodging skills. We will continue to work on this next week.
This week and the rest of the weeks on November, we will be reading books and doing fun art activities.
Also, Friday is the Book Character day so everybody dressed up in their favorite book characters, including the ECC teachers
In Music, we continue to practice our steady beat and rhythm. We also sang songs from books.
In Art, we finished creating our Fall Artworks. Kindergarten continued to learn about Primary and Secondary colors and started to create their color wheel creatures. Also, we brainstormed and planned for our Reading Month Face Boards. We will be working on it the whole week so better watch out for our awesome creations!
In P.E., we moved on to our next unit which is Chasing, Fleeing and Dodging. We did tag games such as Runner Tag and Froggy Tag. Also, we did Duck, Duck, Goose.
This week, we started singing and dancing Halloween songs, doing Halloween art projects and thinking about our Halloween costume for the Halloween Festival this October 31st.
In Music, we continued to do Steady Beat activities using rhythm sticks and by clapping our hands. Also, we sang Halloween songs such as Knock, Knock Trick or Treat, Five Little Pumpkins and Who Took the Candy?.
In Art, we started creating Halloween arts and crafts. We learned how to draw Jack-O-Lanterns with different facial expressions.
Also, we beautified our BEAN BAG TOSS BOARD. The Pre-K students helped a lot in making these boards look more amazing!
This week in P.E., we danced Halloween Stomp and Halloween Rules as our warm up activities. Also, we continued to Throw and Catch ball.
Moon Festival was a huge success! Thank you parents for coming and witnessing the performances of our students!
Here are some photos of our lanterns and performances:
This week in Music, we are exploring and performing rhythms! But first, we explored Steady Beat. We used our rhythm sticks to create beats. We also clapped our hands and stomped our feet to the beat. We sang songs and tried our hardest to make the beat steady.
Here are some of our photos:
BOUNCE SONG: Lyrics: “Bounce high, bounce low, bounce the ball to Shiloh.”
