Monday: Actor

Nov 25, 2013   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar:  Discussed the date in English and Spanish and wrote it in number form.  Lucas is the calendar and meteorologist for this week.  He was not here yet so we did the calendar together.  The children put the numbers on the calendar and discussed the pattern.  They found the day of the week in Spanish.  We reviewed our colors, shapes, Spanish, Sign Language and Sight words.

Fun Facts/Brainstorming:  Reviewed what we learned about Musicians.  Today the children told me what they know about an actor.  They did not know what an actor was until we explained it. Discussed: Who they like to pretend to be?  Fun facts:  An actor is a person whose profession is acting on the stage, in movies or on television.  Actors and actresses normally have to audition to receive the role they want to act as.  Some actors and actresses have to be able to sit in a chair for up to 4 hours or more to get their makeup done to make them look like the characters they’re acting as.  Actors must be in good physical shape as many parts require the ability to move quickly and specifically under a lot of pressure, often enduring heat from stage or studio lights and weight of heavy costumes.

Science: Discussed: Where have you seen bright lights?  We used a flashlight to sign on a child to watch them dance and perform like an actor.  Predicted if objects would look different in the spotlight.  We had a shoe box with holes in it.  We placed an object in the box.  The children took turns shining the flashlight over the different holes until they  lit up the object.  They observed how the object looks in a spotlight.  

Mathematics and Reasoning: Discussed:If you could pretend to be anyone who would that be?  We looked at the Charades cards and named the community helper.  I placed them face down and picked one child to come up and pick a card.  They could not show the card to their friends.  They then acted like that person on the card and the children had to guess by his/her actions which community helper it was.

Language and Literacy: Discussed: How do you get to the places you want to go?  We looked at the /ar/ word family.  Wrote /ar/ on the board and discussed what would happen if we added different letters to the beginning of “ar”.  The children read all the new words that we made.  Words:  jar, par, bar, car, far, etc.  We also added an “s” to the end of the /ar/ to make the words plural and discussed.

Creative Development: Discussed: Who would you pretend to be that wears a crown? We looked at the crowns they will be making in afternoon centers.

Afternoon Centers:  Center 1:Wooden Blocks Center 2: Crown Art- the children will decorate the crown.  They will then glue the jewels on the crown.

Fun Facts/Brainstorming:  Reviewed what the children learned about shopkeepers.  Today the children told me everything they know about Musicians.  Discussed what kind of music do you like.  Fun facts:  A musician is a person who composes and/or performs music, usually as an occupation but often as a hobby.  He or she may play a musical instrument or several musical instruments like drums, piano, guitar, violin or he or she may be a vocalist instead.

Creative Development: Discussed: What have you blown into to make music?  Instruments known as woodwinds make sounds when they are blown into.  Some examples are horns, flutes and pipes.  We looked at the Musical notes that the children did in centers this week.  Discussed how they blew through a straw to blow the paint around on the Music Note.  We looked at everyone’s art!

Language and Literacy:  Discussed: What sounds do you hear around the room? Outside? The children made different sounds using their bodies or toys in the room.  I then read the title to the Little Theatre Script, “Musical Soup”.  The children predicted what they thought the story would be about.  We read the story acting it out as we read. I had a pot to beat on, water in a bottle, beans in a plate.  We discussed what a Chef is and what a masterpiece is.  The children all got to play the musical soup after we read the story.  They had fun!  They had to beat the pot, rub hands together to sound like they were making a fire, shake the water bottle and shake the plate with the beans inside. They all made music.

Mathematics and Reasoning:  Discussed: What is your special talent or what do you like to do best?  The children told me about all their talents. Each child then came up to fill in the Design Mat.  They had to place the correct size of  star in the blank shape area on the mat.  

Physical Development:Discussed: Do you like slow or fast music? Why?  We looked at the keyboard that the children cut out the notes for.  I had each child come up one at a time to play the piano.  I placed out several notes and they had to find the matching key on the piano and play that only those keys that matched the colored notes.

The children reviewed the colors, shapes, Spanish, Sign Language, and Sight words.

Fun Facts/Brainstorming:  Reviewed what the children learned about Hair Dressers.  Today the children told me what they know about shopkeepers. Fun facts:  A shopkeeper owns and runs one independent shop or a number of shops.  A major part of the work is serving and selling to customers, either at a counter or self-service checkout.  Shopkeepers work long hours, including evenings and weekends.  The work involves standing for long periods, and there is some lifting and carrying of stock.

Creative Development: Discussed: What designs are on your shirt?  We looked at the shirts they will create during centers.

Social Studies:  Discussed: Where do you shop?  We found Australia  on the World Map.  Explained that many people like to wear clothes that have the flag of their country on it.  Australia is famous for its sheep.  There are roughly 10 sheep for each person in Australia.  Tasmania is located in Australia and has some of the purest rainwater in the world. Most of the world’s opals come from Australia.  The children will make an Australian flag in centers.

Wednesday: Hair Dresser

Nov 21, 2013   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar:  Discussed the date in English and Spanish and wrote it in number form. Samuel put the number on the calendar, discussed the pattern, found the day of the week in Spanish and discussed the weather.  He reviewed our colors, shapes, Spanish, Sign Language and Sight words

Fun Facts/Brainstorming:  Reviewed what we learned about bankers. Today the children told us everything they know about Hair Dressers.  How do you like your hair to be styled? Fun facts:  A hair dresser is a person who cuts and styles hair as an occupation.  Hairdressing as an occupation dates back thousands of years.  It was in France where men began styling women’s hair for the first time. 

Creative Development: Discussed: Who helps you do your hair?  Explained that a hairdresser is someone that cuts and styles hair.  I showed the children how to wrap a paper strip around a pencil.  The children got to see it curl.  I then showed the children the mask they will be making during center time.

Mathematics and Reasoning:  Discussed:What tools have you seen a hairdresser? We had 4 hair style signs: straight, curly, long, short.  I placed a cup behind each sign and the cups had soapy water in it.  Explained that the soapy water cleans the comb.  A hairdresser has to clean his tools, too.  I had each child come up one at a time to place a comb in the cup behind the hair style they would like to have.  We then counted how many combs were in each cup and discussed more and less.  We had 3 cups with 2 combs in each which resulted in a tie.

Science: Discussed: What have you used to dry your hair?  Explained that a hairdresser often uses a blow dryer to speed up the hair drying process so she can style the hair.  I had the children blow on their hands and tell me what they feel and hear.  I had a variety of items for them to blow and see if they could move them.  I had each child come up one at a time to try  to blow the items.  I then used the blow dryer to blow the same item.  They discovered that the blow dryer blew the items faster than their mouths did. 

Language and Literacy: Discussed: Who do you know with long hair? Very short hair?  We discussed the letter V.  I showed the children how to make the Letter V on the wipe off board.  Each child come up one at a time to practice writing the capital and lowercase Vv.  

Tumble Bus Day:  Please see the form by the front door to see the activities they did on the bus!

Afternoon Centers:  Center 1:Wooden Blocks/Outside Play Center 2: Cut and Curl Mask- The children dipped a comb into paint to paint on hair to the mask.  They then curled, cut and styled the strips of paper and put those on the mask as the hair.  They attached a stick so they could hold their mask on their face.  Center 3:  My Little Journal-The children practiced writing their capital and lowercase V’s on the journal page.  They took a large V and gave it a haircut by cutting a little off the top of the V  and glued the V on the top of the page. Center 4: Keyboard Cutting-The children will cut out the notes for the keyboard. They can then pretend to play the piano. This is part of Friday’s lesson.

 

Tuesday:Banker

Nov 19, 2013   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar:  Discussed the date in English and Spanish and wrote it in number form.  Samuel wasn’t here today so we did calendar together.  The children told me the pattern, found the number, discussed the weather and found the day of the week in Spanish.  We reviewed our colors, shapes, Spanish, Sign Language and Sight words.  

Fun Facts/Brainstorming:  Reviewed what we learned about waiters/waitresses.  Today the children told me everything they know about a banker.  Have you been to a bank?  Fun facts:  A banker is an officer or owner of a bank or group of banks.  Bankers wear suits that are black or navy colored.  Money looks different in different countries. 

Creative Development: Discussed: What do you like to order at a restaurant?  We looked at the order cards and discussed the food items on the plate. I placed a plate on the tray on the floor.  I had one child come up and gave them an order card to use.  They had to find the matching food that was on the order card.  They then had to place it on the plate and tray exactly the way they saw it placed on the order card.  Each child got a turn to pick an order card and make the matching plate.  

Physical Development: Discussed: What is your favorite cereal?  Whole grains help us digest food and give us energy.   These grains can be found in bread, rice, crackers, cereal and pasta.  Yum!  We discussed two side dishes: rice and bread.  Discussed that these are grains.  I told the children to pretend that I was making them dinner and they will have a choice of having rice or bread as their side.  The children that wanted Bread stood by the rocking chair.  The children that wanted rice as their side item stood by the gate.  We then counted to see how many chose bread and how many chose rice.  We discussed more and less.

Mathematics and Reasoning:  Discussed: How do you help after dinner?  Explained that some waiters and waitresses have to help clear the tables and wash dishes in their jobs.  I had dishes scattered on our pretend table.  The picked one child to be the waitress/waiter and they came up and gathered a couple dishes and put them onto the tray.  They put them in the bowl full of soapy water and got to wash the dishes.  They then rinsed the dishes with clean water and set them on the towel to dry.  Each child had a turn to pick some dishes, put them on their tray and and wash them.  They loved washing the dishes.

Science:  Discussed: What is your favorite fruit? We looked at their journal pages and discussed the fruit that is orange. 

Language and Literacy: Discussed:Where do you keep money? We looked at the letter V and discussed its sound.  Vault begins with V.  We discussed what a Vault is.  We went through the dictionary to find more V words.  A bank has a vault with a big lock on it.  Money and valuables are stored in the vault.  

Social Studies: Discussed: Where do you save your coins?  We discussed the number 13.  We then looked in their journals and I put 13 coins on the page.  We took my big piggy bank and the children helped count out 13 coins. They then came up one at a time putting the coins back into the bank.  

Mathematical Reasoning: How do you get money? Bankers help keep your money safe until you decide to take it out of the bank.  They keep track of how much money you have in the bank.  We looked at bank books that they would get in afternoon centers where they could keep track of the money they have.  

Social Studies: How do you keep track of money you have?  We used dollars to pretend that we put them in the bank and had that amount in the bank. Example: Thomas wanted to buy a toy so he had to take so many dollars out of the bank and discuss what money was left in the bank.

Mathematical Reasoning: Where do you keep your money?  Explained that some big safes, called vaults, use special locks that open with numbers instead of a key.  We attached a dial on a shoe box and put money in it.  The children read all the number cards 1-15.  I had each child come up one at a time and pick 3 number cards on the floor.  They had to tell me the numbers and then turn the dial on the box to the matching numbers they picked.  This would unlock the safe and they could get their money out.  

Show and Tell:   The children were to all bring a V item.  They came up one at a time to show us their item and discuss why they brought it!  

Afternoon Centers:  Center 1: Little People/Outside play Center 2: My Little Journal- The children went to the page with 13 on it.  The dipped their finger in paint and made 13 coins on the page.  The then practiced writing the number 13.   Center 3:  Bank Book-The children will practice their cutting skills by cutting out the money.  They worked with Miss Ashlie on pretending to put money in their account by writing in their bank books.   Center 4: Music Note Art-The children used a straw to blow paint around the music note.  We will be discussing Musicians on Friday.

Fun Facts/Brainstorming:  Reviewed what we learned about Office Managers.  Today the children told me what a waiter was.  We discussed their favorite places  to eat.  Fun facts:  Traditionally most waiters were male, but this has changed significantly, leading to the term waitress.  A waiter’s job in a restaurant includes greeting people once they are seated at a table.  The waiter takes orders of guests, informs guests of specials, and answers questions regarding ingredients or preparation methods.  We discussed how much a waiter makes and what tips are.  

Language and Literacy: Discussed: What do you like to eat on a burger? We had burger pieces where the children got to build a hamburger using the pieces.  We Then read the participation story, “Cheese Please”.  The children added what they wanted on their Burger by using the picture cards.  After we read the story we discussed and answered questions.  Discussion Questions:  What is missing on the hamburger? (cheese)  Where is cheese made?  (A cow produces milk and we make cheese from milk)  Do you think the child eats the sandwich without the cheese?  Where did the boy take his mom to find cheese? (grocery store but the store had no cheese so they went to a dairy farm)

Afternoon Centers:  Center 1: Legos Center 2: Fill the Order Art- The children took a tray and used a fork to dip into paint and make prints on the tray.The children then cut apart the order cards and decorated the plate.  They looked at the the order card and put their foods in order on the plate.  They then practiced carrying their trays with their plates on it.      Center 3:  My Little Journal- The children went to the orange page.  They drew a circle and turned it into an orange fruit.  They then told us their favorite fruit and drew a picture of that fruit also on the page.

Language and Literacy:  Discussed: What kind of supplies have you seen in an office?   We looked at the illustrated story sequence cards. Each child was asked what he/she saw in the illustrations.  The children put  the illustration cards in the correct order of what happened in the pictures.

Mathematics and Reasoning:  Discussed: How would you keep an office neat and clean?    We discussed how an office manager helps keep the office organized and sometimes will organize papers or files by color. Show and Tell: Each child was asked to stand up and show what they were wearing that was orange.  We looked at the different shades of orange in their clothing and found the darkest shade.  We then put the shades of orange in order from darkest to lightest.  We discussed how many people wore orange and how many did not.  The children one at a time took the color wand and found something in the room orange and zapped it.

Social Studies:  Discussed: Have you ever been in an elevator?   We learned how to say “up” in sign language  ( using your index finger, point upwards).  The children then pretended to ride an elevator up to a certain floor level ( 1-16) . The children pushed a number on the elevator pad and told us that number.  They then signed the word “up” for each floor level the elevator had to go up.  So if the child pushed the number 6 they signed “up” ,6 times.  They waited for the elevator doors to open and found the number that matched the floor they were on.   

Afternoon Centers:  Center 1: Outside Play Center 2: Computer Art- The children colored and added pictures to their computer screens.  They then put the computer together.

Fun Facts/Brainstorming:  The children reviewed what they learned about Garbage Collectors.  Today the children told us what they know about Plumbers.  They did not know what a plumber was so we had to discuss this.  Fun facts:  A plumber is a trades-person who specializes in installing and maintaining stems used for potable (drinking) water, sewage, and drainage in plumbing systems. Years of training and/or experience are needed to become a skilled plumber; some jurisdictions also require that plumber to be licensed.  Plumbers use pliers, pipe wrenches, screw drivers, basin wrenches and other tools.  

Creative Development: Discussed: What would you do if the toilet was plugged?  A plumber helps find out why toilets, sinks and other pipes are plugged then tries to fix them.  Explained that when a toilet is working properly, the water swirls around the toilet clockwise.  

Language and Literacy: Discussed: What tools would you keep in a tool box?  Explained that a plumber needs to carry many tools to a job so he can fix many problems.  Plumbers often use toolboxes to carry the tools.  We looked at the postcards they will be making in afternoon centers.

Physical Development: Discussed: How do you keep food from going down the drain? Discussed what would happen if you put the potatoes in the sink. We then mixed Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs in a bowl.  We washed and cut the potatoes into slices.  I dipped the potato in olive oil and then dipped in the cheese mixture and put on a pan to bake in oven for lunch.  These were called Crispy Potatoes.

Mathematics and Reasoning:  Discussed: Where have you seen pipes? We looked at their journal pages to discuss what they would be doing in afternoon centers.

Science:  Discussed: Have you used any tools?   We had 2 Treasure chest with clues on them.  Miss Shana read the clues one at a time and the children tried to guess what was in the chest.  We read all 3 clues and tried to narrow the choices down by the clues given.  We picked one child to come up and pick the key they thought would open the chest.  If the chest opened then they correctly guessed what was in the chest.  Treasure Chest 1:  You can find me in a toolbox.  I am used to fix things.  You pound on me.  What am I? (Hammer).  Treasure Chest 2:  You can find me in a toolbox.  I am used to fix things.  You twist and turn me.  What am I?  (Wrench)

Afternoon Centers:  Center 1:Outside play Center 2: Post card-The children will draw tools to put in their toolbox and then write about those tools.    Center 3:  My Little Journal- The children will go to the star page and then draw a star. They will then use pieces of straws to make a star.

 

Wednesday: Garbage Collector

Nov 13, 2013   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar:  Discussed the date in English and Spanish and wrote it in number form.  Thomas put the number on the calendar, discussed the weather and found the day of the week in Spanish.  He reviewed the colors, shapes, Spanish, Sign Language and Sight words.

Fun Facts/Brainstorming:  Reviewed what we learned about  teachers.  Today the children told us everything they know about Garbage collectors.  Fun facts:  In the United States  in 2009, garbage men collected 243 million tons of trash.  That’s 4.3 pounds of  trash per person per day.  China developed methods of Composting/Recycling, and recycling bronze for later use.  Garbage isn’t  just the smelly rotting fruits, vegetables or meat that we throw away in our homes.  That’s only a small part of all the stuff we throw away.  We create more waste that we never see; for example, construction, mining, or factory waste.  

Mathematics and Reasoning:  Discussed: What equipment do you use to help collect garbage? We worked on making patterns with the pattern strip.  The children helped continue the pattern by adding the pictures.  We then changed the pattern to make new ones.  

Creative Development: Discussed: What animals have you seen trying to get in the garbage? Explained that many small animals such as squirrels and raccoons search through the garbage to find food.  We  had one child hide in the room while the other children tried to find them.  We counted to 13 as we searched and had them pop up and yell “surprise!”.  

Science:   Discussed: Who do you know that recycles? Explained that there are mountains of trash on Earth now.  We brainstormed ways to reuse items or recycle them to make less trash.  We had trash that we made a small trash mountain out of.  We then used those items to make a trash sculpture.  They used them to decorate their trash badges.  

Physical Development:  Discussed: Where do you put your garbage can for the garbage collector to pick up? We looked at the letter Z and discussed how to write the letter.  I wrote the capital and lowercase on the board.  The children practiced writing the capital and lowercase Z on the wipe-off boards.  We looked at the Z page in the Journals.

Language and Literacy: Discussed: What kinds of things can you recycle? The children helped me read the Rebus Reader.  They predicted what they thought the story would be about by looking at the title.  We discussed as we read the story and the children answered questions at the end of the story.  

Tumble Bus Day:  Please see the form by the sign in and out book to see what activity they did today.  Mr. Mik was dressed up like a clown and had a squeaking nose.  

Show and Tell:  The children came up one at a time to count out their 2 items.  They did not need any help counting to 2.  Maggie then sat on Miss Peyton’s lap and we read all her birthday cards from yesterday.  

Afternoon Centers:  Center 1: Variety of Toys Center 2: My Little Journal- The children practiced writing their capital and lowercase Z.  They then drew a large Z at the top of the page to pretend it was a road.  They drew garbage cans along the road for the garbage truck to pick up.  Center 3:  Eco Kids Badge- The children colored and used trash to decorate their badge.  We reminded them how we can reuse our trash for different things.Center 4: Trashcan Surprise Puppet-The children will color a small cup and then glue on trash pictures. They will attach the raccoon to a craft stick and make a slit in the cup so it can pop up and surprise you.

 

Tuesday: Teacher

Nov 12, 2013   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar:  Discussed the date in English and Spanish and wrote it in number form.  Thomas told us the pattern on the calendar, put the numbers on the calendar and discussed the weather.  He found the day of the week in Spanish.  Thomas reviewed our colors, shapes, Spanish, Sign Language,  and Sight words.  

Fun Facts/Brainstorming:  Reviewed what we learned about Bus Drivers.  Today the children told me everything they know about a teacher.  Discussed:  Who helps you learn things?  Fun facts:  During an average school day, teachers are spending an average of almost 5 hours on instruction a day.  More than half of Indonesia’s primary school teachers are under 30 years of age.  

Language and Literacy: Discussed: Who helps you learn your alphabet?  We looked at the Hands-on Letter Z.  Discussed the sound of this letter and words that begin with this letter.  We made zigzags with our hands.  We looked at the letter Z and noticed how it looks like a zigzag line. We discussed why it was important to learn our letters.  Discussed how words are made up of letters and things that we would need to read to help us in life.  

Social and Emotional Development: Discussed: What rules would you have if you were a teacher? Explained that a teacher uses rules to keep children safe and happy.  Discussed what it means to be respectful.  (Respect means you use your actions and words to show another person that you see him as valuable and important.)  We discussed ways the children could be respectful or are disrespectful.  Discussed why it is so important to respect our parents and why rules are so important and how they keep us safe.

Mathematics and Reasoning:  Discussed: What can you teach others to do?  We looked at the hands-on number 1 and 3.  We discussed each number.  The children then taught me how to make a 13 with these two numbers.   We counted to 13 in English and Spanish.  We counted the 13 stars.  We then did exercises to 13.  Jump 13 times, touch our toes 13 times, spank our bottoms 13 times, etc.  

Social Studies:  Discussed: What do you want to be when you grow up? Explained that no matter what you want to do or be when you grow up a teacher helps you learn what you need to get there.  We learned 3 new sight words: you, can, to.  I passed out the characters to each child that would be read about in the I Can Read book.  When we read about that character, the child that had the picture would hold it up and help read that page.   We read the book together because the children helped read all the new sight words in the book.  

Show and Tell:  The children were to bring 13 items, a birthday card for Miss Kim and Maggie!  The children came up one at a time to count out their 13 items.  We discussed if they needed more or less objects.  Miss Kim read all her birthday cards and loved them all.  Maggie will get to read hers tomorrow because she was not here today.

Afternoon Centers:  Center 1:Bowling Pins and Waffle Blocks Center 2: I Can Read Book- The children will go through and underline or circle the sight words.  They can also color the book.
