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

Fun Facts/Brainstorming:  Reviewed what we learned about a plumber.  Today the children told us about what an Office Manager is.  Discussed if the kids have ever been in an office.  Fun facts:  Office Managers are people that hold office management positions conduct special studies, develop reports, provide input, and much more.  They use a range of office software, including email, spreadsheets and databases. 

Creative Development: Discussed: Where do you use a computer?   We looked over the computer and mouse activity the children completed. 

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.
