Today we talked about the Letter B. One of our students is having a Birthday tomorrow, and he brought Brownies as a treat! The letter worked really well into everything we did today, and everyone (including me!) had a lot of fun. After we did some handwriting pages about the letter B, I got the milk out of the fridge and poured it into a clear glass. When I got the Nesquick down, the kids’ faces lit up.
We talked about the color Brown and how it starts with the letter B, and then we watched as the milk turned brown.
After I stirred it all up, we talked about what made the milk turn brown, and then I said, “okay, let me just dump this down the drain and we’ll do something else.” The kids didn’t protest, but their little faces were SO SAD! It was cute! Instead of dumping it like I had teased them I would, I got out cups and let them each make their own Brown milk. While they stirred it up, I rinsed the original cup out and made clear water turn BLUE.
Last time we had class, we talked about the letter G and gingerbread. I was so excited to find a worksheet about gingerbread men and colors! It had both the color BROWN and the color BLUE, so we were able to review the letter G a little and talk about something new.
After stretch/wiggle time, we played with patterns using the following:
button, bell, button, bell…
For reading time, one of the kids chose “Goodnight Gorilla.” After reading time was done, I sent them to the table for crafts and they all said “goodnight!” and “fell asleep.”
Finally, after we colored pictures of Christmas bells, we made Bracelets out of Bells, and then we shook them while we sang “Jingle Bells.”
After we sang, the kids gobbled up their brownies.
Today was a REALLY GREAT day at preschool!
