Welcome to another fun week of preschool!
This week we learned about giraffes. We also learned that giraffes have spots to help camouflage them from other animals that want to eat them. We also learned about the letter G, the number 7, and squares. Our Bible verse this week was, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to everyone." Mark 16:15.
Some of the books we looked at this week were, Giraffes Can't Dance by Giles Andreae, My Pet Giraffe by Mark Iacolina, Giraffes Aren't Half as Fat by Miriam Aroner. We also read about goats in Let's Count Goats by Mem Fox, What Floats in a Moat? by Lynne Berry, and Llama Llama and the Bully Goat by Anna Dewdney.
Since our theme was giraffes, The Little Princess made a giraffe with basic shapes and finger painted the spots.
The Little Princess also made a capital letter goat,
and a lower case goose.
She chose purple eyes since everything else was so "colorless."
The Little Princess also painted the letter g to add to her Learning Book
This week she made a gingerbread girl for her learning book.
Here are her finished projects.
She also worked on her number seven.
I am starting to have to get creative for her number pages. Today she hung seven pieces of clothes on the line.
She was excited about the clothes I made out of scrapes of fabric. I tried to make them similar to clothes she has. She really liked the "Dorothy" dress I made from the scrap of fabric left over from her Halloween costume.
This week we also learned all about squares. Did you know they have four corners and four sides that are all the same size?
This week The Little Princess made a robot out of squares of aluminum foil and construction paper.
She decided her robot needed four arms.
This week we also had a special snack of grapes.
I hope you are having as much fun as we are!
Until next time!
