Free play time. We enjoyed playing in the water table, painting with watercolors, and building with cups.

Water play fosters learning in all developmental areas. It provides opportunities for children to experiment with math and science concepts, strengthen their physical skills, advance their social and emotional skills, and enhance language development (Crosser, 1994; Hendrick, 1996).

 Large motor time in the Commons

Before small groups we looked at all the letters and practiced the sounds that they make. We also talked about how some of the letters are similar in looks

We also learned how to play a memory matching game. We will be working more on how to play games especially taking turns and being a gracious loser.

 In our small groups we worked with the letters again recording letters that we thought looked similar. It was good for us to try to identify the letters and look closely at them. Some of us even started to notice the lowercase letters.

We had a lot of fun with black paper, colored chalk, and stickers. We tried to make lots of circles like in our Press Here book we read earlier in the week.

Mrs. Schilling helped us play the matching game with partners.

We used the SMARTboard again to practice some Yoga poses.

We had fun in the gym playing with all of the other preschoolers.
