PRE-K NEWSLETTER

THINGS THAT FLY is our next theme for pre-k. Below are activities to accompany this theme.

Make a general list of things that fly. Break your list up into categories. (The in-class activity was going to consist of pictures of things that fly, cut from magazines, glued under different categories.)

Literature selections: “Wings” by: Nick Bantock, “Things that Fly” by Richard Northcott

Continue to practice sorting by color and size. Use any counters you have, Legos, bingo chips, etc.

Paper airplanes-create a paper airplane and practice flying. Have a race with someone in your house. Whose plane flew the farthest? How far did your plane fly? Use your feet to measure.

Kites: Create a kite. Use paper, markers, paint, etc. Whatever you have at home. COUNTING ACTIVITY: Using a large kite and small bows, roll the dice, add that many bows to the kite’s tail.

Birds: Take a walk and look for birds. Draw bird pictures. Look for birds in your books on your bookshelf. Make a bird feeder out of a pinecone or rice cake.

Pretend to fly like a plane and a bird. Move around your yard or house.

Music: Six Little Ducks, I'm a Little Airplane Song for Kids | Fun Songs for Children | The Kiboomers

YOU MAY PICK UP A PACKET OF WORK (BASIC SKILLS) AT CSOC. THE PACKETS ARE IN A PLASTIC BIN WITH A LID. LOOK FOR THE LABELED FOLDER FOR PREK


Can you make a picture using shapes? An ice cream cone using a triangle and a circle or a house using squares and triangles? You can draw or cut and glue shapes together. Have fun!!!

Shape Hunt: How many shapes are in your house? Walk around and look for shapes. Have someone help you keep track of how many triangles, circles, squares and rectangles you have in your house. Maybe you can do one room each day. Have fun!!!

ALPHABET FUN

To date, we have covered all sounds except for /Ii/, /Oo/, and /Uu/. Some review ideas include: an alphabet hunt using index cards or pieces of paper. Hide them around the house, or just a room, and when your child finds the letter, ask them to identify the letter and try to say the sound. While reading a story, ask your child to find a certain letter before turning the page.
