Our focus this week will be on apples. We will learn why an apple a day keeps the doctor away. We will read many great books about apples and do some fun apple activities throughout the week. We will celebrate Johnny Appleseed on Wednesday and make applesauce on Friday. We will read Ten Apples Up on Top and review numbers one to ten. We will be given the challenge to build the tallest structure to hold an apple. We will graph our favorite ways to eat an apple.
We will complete Theme One in our Literacy Series this week. We have read many wonderful books. Our Message Time is coming along nicely and we are doing an awesome job identifying letters. We look for these letters in our names. We are listening for rhyming words in all the books we read. This week in Religion we will learn that God made our friends. We will talk about ways to be a good friend and we will become aware that Jesus is our friend. We will also learn about some of Jesus' special friends. We are working hard to get to know all the names of our Pre-K`4 friends.
