Pre-K 4 Students Learn Measurement and About Weather

After Dr. Seuss week in March, Pre-K4 worked on not only sight words, but early math skills in measuring by reading his famous story, “The Foot Book.”  We then traced our own feet and measured them with different objects around the room, including paper clips, pennies, and markers.

   

Pre-K4 learned all about weather in March.  We studied different things that fall from the sky, including hail, snow, and rain before charting our favorite.  We then worked on early literacy skills and learned about wacky things that may fall from the sky by reading Dr. Seuss’ “Bartholomew and the Oobleck”, a story in which a king decides he wants green goo to rain down on his kingdom. We made our own oobleck for science and used our senses to write what it looked, smelled and felt like.
