Five Senses Week 4

Just in case you missed our last post, here is our Five Senses Symphony Performance from last week. We created instruments and sang for the other preschool classrooms. The children were very proud of themselves.
Books This Week
Princess and the Pea (Will she feel the pea?)
Stone Soup

Small Groups For This Week:
1.Language Arts- We will use our sense of touch to identify lowercase letters in mystery bags.
2. Math- We will use 1:1 correspondence to count 10 different mattresses for a bed for the Princess and the Pea. Then we will put the mattresses in number order.
3. Math- Creating Staircase Patterns.- Patterns that go up and then back down. (ex-1step, 2 steps, 3 steps, 2 steps, 1 step)
 Science- Our class will go on a listening walk (inspired by our unit book Listening Walk). We will talk about all of the sounds we hear inside and compare them to outside sounds we hear.
