Wednesday: Suitcase

Feb 1, 2012   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar: Discussed calendar in English and Spanish.  Max added the number to the new calendar, discussed the weather and found the day of the week in Spanish.  We discussed the new month and discussed how to spell it.  Max told us the Spanish and Sign language words

Brainstorm/Fun Facts: We said bye to January and Hello to February.  Discussed that this month’s theme is called, “It’s a Small World”.  Today we will be talking about Suitcases.  The children told me what they know about a suitcase and what they might put in it.  Fun Facts:  A suitcase is a general term for a distinguishable form of luggage. It is often somewhat flat, rectangular-shaped bag with round/square corners, either metal, hard plastic or made of cloth, vinyl or leather that more or less keeps its shape.  It has a carrying handle on one side and is used mainly for transporting clothes or other possessions during trips.  It opens on hinges like a door. Suitcases can lock with keys or a combination.  A study found that a person on a week-long holiday trip needs to pack 34 items, but the average woman on such a trip will pack 60, “just in case”.  Originally, suitcases were made of wool or linen.

Visual Art:  Discussed:  What do you think a passport is? We looked at Miss Kim’s passports.  It is a little book that has your name and address in it.  When you travel to other countries, you get stamps in the book when you enter and leave the country.  We looked at a suitcase pattern that they will be making in afternoon centers along with a passport.

Speaking:  Discussed:  What do you see in the suitcase on the Poster?  We discussed what else they saw on the poster.

Visual Art:   Discussed:  What is too big to fit in a suitcase?  We looked at the Color Bird and discussed the color, “red”.  Show and Tell–  The children all were to wear red today.  They each stood up one at a time and showed us all the red in their clothes.

Social Skills:   Discussed:  What wool you pack if you went to a friend’s house for the night?  We then pretended that we were flying to grandma’s house in Florida.  I had the children’s name tags that we pretended were plane tickets.  If they recognized their name then they could come get their name tag and read their name and board the plane.  Only 4 children recognized their names so they were the ones that got to fly to Grandma’s house.  All the children had to tell me their full names.

Tumble Bus Day:  See form by the front door.

Afternoon Centers: Center 1: Outside Play  Center 2: They will make their own suitcase.  They can color it and then use the yarn to attach it to the other pattern.  They will also make their own passport.  Center 3:  Name tags- The  children will practice writing their names on the name tag.
