What are We Learning


We will start the new school year off with lots of name-recognition activities and writing. We will also review the letters A, B, and C with the Mystery Box, Letter Posters, and writing the letters. We will continue to review Zoophonics from last year as well.


The children will be graphing how many letters are in their names during the first week. We will match apple seeds with numbers and graph bears by color. The children will also compare cats to see which is different.


For fine motor, we will be making shapes with play dough, following lines by tracing them with mini erasers, and cutting out a bird. For gross motor, the children will play Clap A Friend’s Name with Me and play Acorn, Acorn on the Ground. We will also go on a Nature Walk.


This month we will talk about the Apple Life Cycle and do activities related to apples. We will balance bears, mix red and yellow to make “fire,” and we will build castles on the light table.


The children will go on a Color Hunt and play the Name Game. We will also talk about Fire Safety Tips.
