Songs:  Sang morning gathering song, days of the week and months of the year. 

Brainstorm/Fun Facts:  Reviewed what they learned about hats.  Today they will be discussing coats.  Discussed:  When do you wear a coat?  Fun Facts:  A coat is a long garment worn by both men and women, and children for warmth or fashion.  Long cloaks were popular with both boys and girls through the 16th and 17th centuries.  From about 1750 every British village woman owned a hooded cloak which was the usual outdoor wear.

Emergent Reader:Discussed:  How big is your coat?  Your mom’s coat?  We looked at the capital and lowercase letter C.  We discussed the sounds that it makes.  They set the two sizes of letters on an adult coat and a child had to come up and find the big letter.  They then placed the little letter on the small coat. 

Numbers:  Discussed:  How does your coat fasten? Compare and try on different types of coats.  Explain that coats have a variety of fasteners; some examples include zippers, buckles, buttons and snaps.  They counted out one and two buttons. 

Social Skills:  Discussed:  What do you like to wear?  Looked at magazine pictures of clothing.  Miss Mikie picked out one in her head on what she would wear.  The children had to guess which one she was thinking about.  Miss Mikie gave clues if needed.

Life Science: Discussed:  What types of coats do animals wear?  Animals wear scales, fur or feathers. They looked at pictures of different animal coats. 

Afternoon Centers: Center 1: Outside Play  Center 2:  The children will assemble their pocket counters by folding the paper on the dotted line.  Cut the two pockets apart.  Tape the edges.  They will also cut out the two buttons.   Center 3:  The children got to draw a coat and make an animal pattern on it.
