Friday: Be a Winner

Feb 22, 2013   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

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

Brainstorm/Fun Facts:  Reviewed what we learned about throwing and catching.  Today the children told me everything they know about being a winner.  When you win a race or tournament you receive a medal or a trophy.  In the Olympics the winner receives a gold medal.  A winner is also a good leader.

Science:  Discussed:  What would be a good prize to win? We had an object in a bag and each child came up one at a time to feel it without looking.  After every child had a turn to feel, they guessed what it was.  Mallory guessed a necklace which was close and then Gretchen guessed that it was a Medal.  We discussed ways they could be winners or good leaders here at school and at home.  

Mathematics and Reasoning:  Discussed:  What would you do if you were running a race and didn’t know which way to go?  We reviewed the letter G and discussed the sound.  We discussed words that begin with that letter. I had the Alphabet Strip and each child came up one at a time to take the G pointer and find the letter G g on the Alphabet strip.  They were a winner if they could find it.  

Physical Development:  Discussed:  What can you do to be a winner today?  Explained that many times a winner is also a leader.  A good leader shows others how to follow the rules.  We discussed how they could be winners at home and at school by following the rules.  We looked at their I Can Write Project that they did yesterday in afternoon center.

Language and Literacy:  Discussed:  What number do you think represents a winner?  We discussed how normally the number 1 represents a winner but you can also come in 13th place and still be a winner if you did your best and had good sportsmanship.  We looked at our journals and counted the 13 baseballs.  

Afternoon Centers:   Center 1: Puzzles, coloring  and lacing toys
