Friday: Pet Groomer

May 17, 2013   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar:  Discussed the date in English and Spanish and wrote it in number form.  Gretchen put the number on the calendar and told us the pattern.  She found the day of the week in Spanish and discussed the weather.  Gretchen reviewed the colors, shapes, Spanish and Sign language words. 

Fun Facts/Brainstorming:  Reviewed what the kids learned about rocks.  Today the children told me what they know about a Pet Groomer.  They were not sure of what this was.  How can pets get dirty?   Fun facts:  grooming is any activity–whether on your part or his– that contributes to your pet’s physical appearance and makes him cleaner or more hygienic.  For dogs, brushing and bathing should be done regularly, as most dog breeds don’t lick themselves clean like cats.  Dogs nails need trimmed and dogs and cats teeth need brushed. 

Language and Literacy:  Discussed:  What supplies do you need to wash? We looked at the word family “ub”.  We made all kinds of words by putting new letter(s) at the beginning of “ub”. Examples; tub, rub, scrub, club, dub, etc. 

Mathematics and Reasoning: Discussed:  How could you dress up your pet?  Explained that when a pet visits the pet groomer, sometimes he comes home with bows, collars, bandannas or other decorations.  We looked at our foam shapes and made designs with them.

Social and Emotional Development:  Discussed:  Which kind of pet do you wish you had?  How often would you wash your pretend pet? The children pretended to roll in the mud and get all dirty.  I then helped them wash and scrubbed them clean.  

Language and Literacy:  We looked at their My Little Journal’s and reviewed the letter D.  Each child came up one at a time to practice writing the capital and lowercase D on the wipe off board again.  

Afternoon Centers:  Center 1: Legos Center 2: I Can Write Project- The children practiced tracing the lines and writing their capital and lowercase Dd.  Center 3:  My Little Journal-  The children practiced writing their Capital and lowercase Dd.  They also drew a giant capital and lowercase D on the page.  They tried to turn the D into a dirty dog.
