Preschoolers I’m hoping you will do some patterning this week. Pattern by color, size or shape. If you have Legos they work well for all the pattern options. Or use blocks or other objects you have at home. Simple patterns, ababab, abcabcabc or abbabbabb. Try as many patterns as you please. If you would like, send us photos or drawings of patterns you’ve made.

 

One favorite part of my week is when I see photos and videos you send us and seeing all of you on our Zoom meetups. Hopefully we will see most of you at the preschool pick up day June 10th. Just a reminder, both A M classes are scheduled for 2:00-2:30 and PM is at 2:30-3:00. We will have a bag for each child with their spare clothes, report cards and memory books for you. Unfortunately, there will not be time to visit but it will be great to see everyone and be able to wish you all the best for the summer. Enjoy your week!

I think everyone knows the sound and can guess what animal we’re making. Yes, it is a zebra for z sound. I’m sending a picture of a z zebra as a sample for you to make. A few words or names that begin with z are Zoe, zoo and zipper. Try to think of others.

 

Parents, please be sure to continue practicing with your child letter and sound recognition over the summer. Please do the same with numbers and counting. Repetition is key for retaining what they have learned or are learning.

Hello Everyone! Here’s your lesson!

STEM LESSON ABOUT SPRING ANIMALS

Why Are Many Baby Animals Born in Spring?

Begin a discussion by asking the children a few questions to get them thinking. What animals do you see around your house or on a walk? Why do you think you see more animals in the spring and summer? What baby animals have you seen?

 

Many animals have babies in the spring since the warmer weather makes it easier for them to find food to feed them. Birds need the warm weather as they lay eggs which they need to sit on to keep warm so the babies can grow and hatch. Not all babies are born in spring. Polar bears and many other bears have their babies during the winter while they are hibernating. This makes it so the mother does not have to find food while looking after her young.

 

Do you know what the names of different baby animals are? Here are a few

  • A baby bear is called a cub.
  • A baby cow is called a calf.
  • A baby fish is called a fry or fingerling.
  • A baby goat is called a kid. A mother goat is a nanny.
  • A baby horse is called a foal.
  • A baby kangaroo is called a joey.
  • A baby sheep is called a lamb. A mother is a ewe.
  • A baby monkey is called an infant.
  • A baby pig is called a piglet. A mother pig is a sow.
  • A baby platypus is called a puggle.
  • A baby spider is called a spiderling.
  • A baby swan is called a cygnet.

Hello Everyone! Here is your lesson!

Religion Lesson: Where is Jesus Today?

 
Jesus said He would be with us always.  We believe He is with us today.  He is in our smiles and helping hands.  He is in our kind words.  We can always have Jesus with us!
 
We pray that the seeds we have sown this year about who Jesus is, be tended and nurtured by others so that the children will grow in friendship with Jesus and reach the fullness of their potential as children of God.
 
 
  1.  Enjoy saying the poem GOD IS THERE.
          When I run in the sun, God is there.
 
          When I fall playing ball, God cares.
 
          When I’m sad or I’m glad, God knows.
 
          When I mind or I’m kind, God sees.
 
          God is with me day and night,
 
          Helping me to do what’s right.
 
          I love you, God!
 
   
    2.  Fold a paper into 4 parts and draw a picture in each square of ways you know Jesus is with you…maybe in the love of your pet, or in a 
         special fruit God made for you.  Have someone in your family write your words!  Send a picture of your work to your teachers if you have time.

Our sound for this week is y. Can you think of words that begin with y? Yes, yarn and yellow are a few. If you or your parent trace and cut out a y letter you could glue yarn on it or guess what color you could color it? I cut out a y and other pieces of paper to make a yak. It’s not hard to do. You will see it in a picture I’m sending.

If you don’t know what a yak is here is a bit of information about them. Yaks are related to cattle. There are two types, wild and domesticated. Yaks live in icy, cold mountainous regions of Central Asia. You can find it on a world map. Yaks are large animals that have strong sturdy legs and thick long shaggy fur that keeps them warm in the bitter cold. They eat grasses, herbs and small shrubs. They crunch on ice or snow for water. You can find a lot of pictures and information about them online. Your family can help you with that.

For math this week I thought doing some work on before, between and after numbers would be fun to practice. What numbers you use will depend on your child’s number sense. I have sent an example for you to see. Parents, you can make the pages and your child can tell you and then write the number that fits the space. If your child doesn’t write numbers yet you can use a highlighter to write and they can trace. See if they can give you the answer first. Use more challenging numbers for those who are able. Counting and number tracing or writing  is always helpful. If you have any questions please email me. I like hearing from you. Thank you for the April and May pages I’ve been receiving. I’ll be putting the books together at the beginning of June so there is still time.

Have a wonderful week!

Hello! Here’s your video for the day!

Trustworthiness is essential to building positive relationships with others. A trustworthy person is honest, reliable, loyal and has integrity. 

Key Words

  • Integrity: Living with integrity means having the courage to do what is right, to speak out about what you think is wrong, and to try new things even when they are difficult or you might fail. Integrity often takes the willingness to do what is right, even if it is costly or risky.
  • Honesty: Honesty is being truthful and sincere in your actions and words, and accomplishing goals fairly, without cheating or stealing.
  • Reliability: Reliability means keeping your promises, honoring your word and commitments, doing what you say you will do, returning what you borrow, being on time and being dependable.
  • Loyalty: Loyalty means protecting and supporting your family, friends, school and country.
 

Signs of Trustworthiness

You will know that your child is using their character compass and integrating the concepts of trustworthiness into their behavior if they…

  • tell the truth, knowing that a consequence might result
  • are willing to try again even if they did not do as well as they would like the first time
  • return things that they borrow and in the proper condition as they received them
  • keep their promises and don’t tell secrets
  • are following through on their chores and responsibilities
  • are loyal to their friends, family, teams, etc.

When you see these behaviors, make sure to praise and encourage them. It will continue if they know it is being noticed and they will feel even better about themselves for doing the right thing.

 Modeling and Developing Trustworthiness at Home

  • Show reliability by promptly returning things that you borrow and arriving at appointments on time.
  • When paying the bills, explain that you are making good on your promise to pay.
  • Keep your promises and explain how it feels when someone doesn’t keep theirs. Explain that forgetting isn’t an excuse; trustworthy people find a way to remember
  • Show loyalty by keeping in contact with your friends and relatives, both near and far, encourage your child to do the same.
  • Talk about times in your life when it is/was hard to be honest, keep promises, and do the right thing.
  • Admit your own mistakes and shortcomings, they will be more likely to do the same when they know you make mistakes too
  • Try to avoid “The white lie” and please don’t have your children make excuses for you.

Good Morning Here’s Your Video!

STEM LESSON ABOUT ELEPHANT TOOTHPASTE

 

What is a Chemical Change?

Begin a discussion by asking the children a few questions to get them thinking. Have you ever made a cake? How does a cake look different before and after you cook it? Have you ever mixed foods together and seen them bubble? What do you think a chemical is?

 

Have you ever baked a cake? To make a cake you add things like sugar, flower, and eggs together to make something different, a cake. Can you take your cake and try and get just the sugar out of it? No, because the cake is not the same as the ingredients you used to make it. This is an example of a chemical change. During a chemical change, the original ingredients or substances are changed into a new substance. A few things that you can notice when you see a chemical change can include change in heat and smell, appearance of bubbling, and a color change.

The foam made in this classic Elephant’s Toothpaste reaction is extra-special because it goes through a chemical change. Hydrogen peroxide is used on cuts and is made of water and oxygen gas. Yeast is alive and used in bread to help it fluff up and rise in the oven. Yeast can be used as a catalyst, speeding up the release of oxygen. This means that if you mix yeast with hydrogen peroxide, the hydrogen peroxide will quickly break down into water and oxygen gas. The oxygen gas forms bubbles. These bubbles would usually escape from the liquid and pop quickly but adding a little dish soap traps the bubbles and creates lots of foam. This foam looks like a giant squeeze of toothpaste—almost big enough for an elephant, but don’t get the foam in your mouth because it will make you sick.

  1. Watch Ms. Halley make Elephant Toothpaste

Our sound for this week is y. Can you think of words that begin with y? Yes, yarn and yellow are a few. If you or your parent trace and cut out a y letter you could glue yarn on it or guess what color you could color it? I cut out a y and other pieces of paper to make a yak. It’s not hard to do. You will see it in a picture I’m sending.

If you don’t know what a yak is here is a bit of information about them. Yaks are related to cattle. There are two types, wild and domesticated. Yaks live in icy, cold mountainous regions of Central Asia. You can find it on a world map. Yaks are large animals that have strong sturdy legs and thick long shaggy fur that keeps them warm in the bitter cold. They eat grasses, herbs and small shrubs. They crunch on ice or snow for water. You can find a lot of pictures and information about them online. Your family can help you with that.

Here’s another fun project for the letter Yy:

Math

(20 minutes)

For math this week I thought doing some work on before, between and after numbers would be fun to practice. What numbers you use will depend on your child’s number sense. I have sent an example for you to see. Parents, you can make the pages and your child can tell you and then write the number that fits the space. If your child doesn’t write numbers yet you can use a highlighter to write and they can trace. See if they can give you the answer first. Use more challenging numbers for those who are able. Counting and number tracing or writing  is always helpful. If you have any questions please email me. I like hearing from you. Thank you for the April and May pages I’ve been receiving. I’ll be putting the books together at the beginning of June so there is still time.

Have a wonderful week!

Love, Mrs. White

Here is your lesson!

DAVID AND GOLIATH

Goliath is a giant in the Philistine army.  Every day he challenged the army of King Saul to select someone to fight him.  David was a young shepherd boy standing among the scared Israelite army.  He had a strong relationship with God.  He loved to pray and God protected him as David protected his sheep.   Very bravely, David, made a decision to trust God and fight the giant. With God’s protection David found the strength he needed to conquer Goliath.

*With your family’s help think of a time when you were brave.  See the David and Goliath pdf file and dictate and illustrate: I was brave when…  AND also dictate and illustrate all the things you can do well. I am good at…

*Make up a prayer thanking God for helping you do your best to learn new things and be brave!

*With help you might enjoy online coloring a picture of David and Goliath:

 

​*David was good at playing the harp.  Listen to a harpist play Moana
