|March Preschool Lessons|
|Goodyear AZ preschool|
|We started the month by celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday.|
|The Cat in the Hat
The Cat in the Hat project are the children's feet. We did some pipe cleaner contraptions and some cool hats.
|One Fish, Two Fish,
Red Fish, Blue Fish
was the perfect book for using descriptive words
|There's a Wocket in my Pocket
We did a lot of rhyming activities, counted the pockets on our clothes, made a pocket and drew something to fit in it, brought something in our pocket and had our friends guess by the clues, and experimented with liquids and solids as well as size and space.
|Green Eggs and Ham
We charted our likes and dislikes and then sang the song, "If All The Raindrops Were Lemondrops and Gumdrops" using their resposes. For the 'dislikes' they said "yuck, yuck, yuck..." And, of course, we sampled green eggs. It was a huge hit!
|We reviewed our colors this month. Every day at circle time we colored a batch of rice for our sensory table. But every night a very sneaky leprechaun took our rice away and left a fun present in its place. And on the final day he left us a colorful rice rainbow!|
|We made a rainbow of sensory bottles-each filled with a different substance so we could study their properties.|
|Literacy and Language Development|
|We used the shamrock number line to count by 2's, 5's, and 10's.
Below we sorted shamrocks according to the number of leaves on each and used cheese coins to divide the gold pieces between the two leprechauns. We went over "more than", "less than", and "equal to" or "the same as" as well as did some simple addition and subtraction.
|We practiced name recognition and breaking words into syllables.|
|If kindness had a monetary value, we would have been RICH! The children were encouraged to come tell me if they witnessed an act of kidness amongst their friends. Each act of kindness was written on a gold coin and added to our pot.|
|We finished off the month with some fun nursery rhyme activities.|
|Humpty Dumpty gave us the opportunity to go over positional words as well make theories, predictions, and experiement with cause and effect.|
|Mary, Mary Quite Contrary allowed
us to discuss good
what it means to
be a good friend
