We are spending 2 weeks learning about apples! Here is some of our fun from math and literacy centers!
It was SO fun learning on our IWB! At this center, the children clicked on an apple and wrote the letter that was underneath. If there was a worm, they could write any letter they wanted!
At the listening center, we listened to a book about a field trip to the apple farm. The children drew in the Listening Center journals about something they might see at an apple farm.
At this center, the children are practicing beginning sounds and correct letter formation.
Here they are rolling a dice, reading the sight word, and writing it on their paper! The children already know so many sight words! Thank you for working with them at home on their sight words!
Here we are using apple scented play dough to stamp the beginning sounds of the picture on the card. Thank you to Hailee’s and Coral’s family for making the play dough for us!
At this center, the children pulled an apple from the basket, and found the apple on their page with the number of dots that matched the number.
At this center the children practiced measuring with non-standard units – in this case, apples! They even had fun measuring each other!
We work on patterns every day! Most children can easily make AB patterns now! Encourage your child to look for patterns in the “real world” and to make patterns at home!
At this counting center, the children chose an apple count the dots and write it on their paper. You’ll see counting pages like this throughout the year. The “novelty” or clip art will change through out the year, but the concepts and skills remain the same. We are working on 1:1 counting (saying one number for each object we touch), number writing, quantity, and number identification.
