Ms. Dessie's PM Pre-K Classes:
We have been busy working our way through the letters of the alphabet this year and this week we have made it half-way, we got to the lovely letter L! Ladybugs, lions and lemons were are featured guests this L week.
Ask your child about the four stages of the ladybug life cycle (egg, larva, pupa and adult ladybug) and what symmetrical means (the same on both sides- like in ladybug wings). I think you
will be impressed.
They also learned a lesson from the story,"The Lion and the Mouse." Have them retell that story. We talked about telling a story with just using words and picturing it in our minds and then we also spoke about telling a story with just using pictures and making up our own words. A very good exercise to being good future readers.
Then we learned when life gives you lemons....make lemonade! They had fun trying to
find the right balance between the water, lemon juice and sugar and actually loved drinking their creation.
Besides the L focus, we have been moving right along on learning how to write our capital letters and our numbers. A, 8 and 9 were this week. With the number 8, we discussed about going around the race track, starting and finishing in the same place and not picking up our pencil. It takes lots of practice to get that number.
We love learning and look forward to more!
