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

Calendar:  Discussed the date in English and Spanish and wrote it in number form. Thomas was not here today so we did calendar together.  We put the number on the calendar, discussed the weather and found the day of the week in Spanish. We reviewed the Sign Language, color, and shape.  

Fun Facts/Brainstorming:  Reviewed what we learned about what we are scared of?  Today the children told us what makes them feel sad?  

Social and Emotional Development:  Discussed:  What makes you feel better when you are sad? We read the word printed on the Gosling “Loving”.  Discussed what it means to be a loving friend.  For example, when you help others feel better, that is a loving thing to do.  The children then made some sad faces.  One child gently tapped or hugged each child.  After that the children made happy faces.  We did this until all the children were smiling.  

Language and Literacy:  Discussed:  How do animals show they are sad?    We read the I Can Read book.  We learned new sight words: a, it, is!  We discussed our sight words and practiced reading them.  We then read the story again and all the children made sad faces.  When they heard a sight word they would make a happy face.  Each child came up one at a time to circle the sight words in the book.  

Creative Development: Discussed:  What makes a baby sad?  We held a baby doll and pretended it was crying.  Explained that sometimes a baby cries when he is tired.  We discussed what letter “tired” starts with.  We repeated, “Tip toe T, baby is asleep”.  The children moved around the room on their tip toes.  We discussed other words that begin with the letter T.  We also looked in the dictionary for more T words. 

Mathematics and Reasoning:  Discussed:  How do you feel when you lose something?  We looked at the two Hands-on Number 1.  The children then counted as high as they could count.  The children told us how to make 11 using the two hands-on Number 1’s. We then counted to 11. We then looked at the Hands-on Number 1 and 0.  The children told me how to make a 10.  We counted to 10.  We counted 10 blocks and then 11 blocks.  Discussed how they were one number apart.  

Physical Development: Discussed:  What happens when you are sad?  We placed the Counting Cards on the floor.  The children took turns putting the Foam Shapes on the Counting Cards until they are both full.  We then counted the shapes to find the total.  The children learned how to write the number 11 and 10. They came up one at a time to practice writing the numbers on the wipe off board.

Show and Tell:  Each child brought in 11 items.  They came up one at a time and counted their objects to ten and then to eleven.  We discussed if they had the correct amount or if they needed more or less.  

Afternoon Centers:  Center 1:Outside Play Center 2: My Little Journal-  The children went to the  page with 11 on it.  They dipped their finger in paint and let it drip, like a tear drop on the paper.  They counted the drips and got to 10.  They then drew the last tear drop with a crayon.    Center 3:  I Can Read book-  The children went through and circled the sight words: a, it, is.  They then colored the pages.
