Let's Find Out About It: Color Names Inspired by Objects

LFO: Color Names Inspired By Objects
Still playing around with PowerPoint and making activities for my Pre-K class. This is a simple activity designed to prompt discussion about color names and objects which inspire color names. After I introduce this activity during morning meeting tomorrow, these items will be placed in the writing center.

Laughter Is Good For The Soul

For about 3 and a half hours today I have been laughing at myself! Why you ask? Well I am attempting to make a rhyming game for my little ones and my computer skills are not as superb as I thought they were.... after looking at several tutorials on YouTube about designing printables with PowerPoint (http://www.youtube.com/user/MrsStanfordsClass?feature=watch) I think I am getting the hang of it.

  Three things I  learned today:
1.  I need to increase my repertoire of graphic art!
2.  I need to increase my repertoire of graphic art!
                        and
3.  I need to increase my repertoire of graphic art!

Since I had to use some clip art for this activity I will only post  pics tomorrow of the activity and not a link for downloading.

Rainbow bulletin board

My pre k bunnies and I had an awesome time making our rainbow hand print bulletin board. Each child took a turn making several hand prints of different colors. This was a great color, tactile, and St. Patricks Day activity.

100 days of school

We celebrated 100 days of school this week! My pre k kiddos were so excited. We used a teacher made counting mat to count the different collections the kiddos brought from home. The counting mat allowed the children to count to 100 using groups of 10. This number concept was easy for them to understand. At the end of the day I sent the counting mats home with the children so they could share them with their families. Enjoy the pictures

Winter activities

What better way to discuss winter and fun activities which can be done in the winter than to go ice skating! My pre-k class with parents in tow went ice skating (most of them for the first time). You can imagine some of the reservations the adults had about my little ones hitting the ice, but I can proudly say they did a GREAT Job! No tears, no boo-boos, and every child was skating in the middle of the rink by the end of the day!
