Peek at the Week

  • Our story this week was, How I Became A Pirate, by Melinda Longs. Jeremy Jacob was sitting on the beach one fine day with his parents when he saw a pirate ship heading their way. He tried to warn his family, but it was already much too late. When the ship landed, the pirates welcomed Jeremy aboard. Jeremy thought that being a pirate would be fun, but it wasn’t nearly as nice as he thought it would be. Late one night at sea, a gigantic storm struck, and the pirate ship was wrecked. With nowhere else to go, Jeremy and the pirates go back to his house! We practiced the core words, I(Jeremy Jacob), he (Braid Beard), they (the crew) and we (the whole group of pirates). The children had a great time dressing up and playing the various parts using the recorder buttons. As pirates do, we went on a treasure hunt using our map. Cutiest little “scurvy dogs” I ever did see!
  • Our math focus this month is opposites. What’s Up Duck? is a great spring book to practice opposites.
  • The Unique Learning System topic for the month of April is Geography. We continue to focus on land and water forms.

Summer School

For the famiIies new to our program, another teacher will be teaching our class. I do not know who will be teaching summer school for our class yet.

This week we welcome Osman to our classroom. It took him no time at all to melt our hearts! He is so sweet.

Peek at the Week

  • We had a blast at LifeTown on Monday. Special thanks to my sister, Kristie, for helping us on this outing.
  • Our story this week was, Going on an Egg Hunt by Hands on Holiday Reading. We decided to wait until the weather was warmer so we could have our egg hunt outside. We have so much fun with this story as it uses rhythms and hand movements of the classroom favorite We’re going on a Bear Hunt. This time it is eggs we are hunting for. It’s an ideal story for focusing on colors and spatial concepts and lending itself to all kinds of springtime fun. What child can resist an egg hunt? Certainly none of ours. So many giggles and laughs.
  • Our math focus this month is opposites. What’s Up Duck? is a great spring book to practice opposites.
  • The Unique Learning System topic for the month of April is Geography. We continue to focus on land and water forms.
