This week we worked on Letter Tt. As I have been doing all year... we completed a Letter Tt Book. Here it is.
We began with page seven... seven snowflakes. We talked all about snow while creating this page.
We did a science experiment to simulate frost. We took a can and filled it in layers with rock salt and ice and observed the can. Here are a few pictures of our can.
We made a frost picture by coloring and pasting a snowman on purple paper and then using epsom salt and a water mixture (half and half) we painted over our picture. They turned out great but a photo didn't do it justice.
We also decided which things were needed to make the snowman.
Used the process of elimination to know which snowman Marty made.
And tried to draw the missing things on the snowman.
Page 8 was mittens. We talked about when we would wear mittens and the difference between mittens and gloves.
We did a mitten number recognition and counting paper.
A mitten match.
And things we'd wear in the winter.
We also found two things that are the same.
Page 9 was leaves.
We talked about how the wind can move leaves as we completed this page.
Leaves are floating sofly down
They make a carpet on the ground
When swish! The wind comes whirling by
And sends them dancing to the sky
And we experimented with air. I filled a balloon and let it go. Of course, it buzzed all over the room and the children screamed with glee! We had to do it numerous times and each time was like the first!
We tried to blow different toys in the room. We even called in buddies to help when we couldn't do it ourselves. We found that the heavier an object was the harder it was to get it to move.
And we made pinwheels. We couldn't get them to work very well while blowing so we brought out the hair dryer and put it on a cool setting and boy did they spin! The children really loved these!
And we finished our last page... the number 10 page with 10 kites.
We traced diamonds... the shape of some kites.
We pasted kite tails on kites and colored.
And we drew the missing things on the kites.
We also had a song that went with this book. It went to the tune... We Wish You A Merry Christmas
Oh, here on the number one page, oh here on the number one page, oh here on the number one page we see one big sun.
Oh, here on the number two page, oh here on the number two page, oh here on the number two page we see two sun hats.
And it continues with:
three fluffy clouds, four warm sweaters, five raindrops, six umbrella, seven snowflakes, eight mittens, nine floating leaves, and ten flying kites.
Lastly, we talked about near and far this week.
We moved objects near someone and far from someone. We moved objects near to an object and then far from an object.
We did an activity sheet on near and far.
Hope you enjoyed our week!
