Nov 21, 2013   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar:  Discussed the date in English and Spanish and wrote it in number form.  Samuel was not here yet for calendar so we did it together.  We discussed the pattern, found the number, discussed the weather and found the day of the week in Spanish. The children reviewed the colors, shapes, Spanish, Sign Language, and Sight words.

Fun Facts/Brainstorming:  Reviewed what the children learned about Hair Dressers.  Today the children told me what they know about shopkeepers. Fun facts:  A shopkeeper owns and runs one independent shop or a number of shops.  A major part of the work is serving and selling to customers, either at a counter or self-service checkout.  Shopkeepers work long hours, including evenings and weekends.  The work involves standing for long periods, and there is some lifting and carrying of stock.

Creative Development: Discussed: What designs are on your shirt?  We looked at the shirts they will create during centers.

Social Studies:  Discussed: Where do you shop?  We found Australia  on the World Map.  Explained that many people like to wear clothes that have the flag of their country on it.  Australia is famous for its sheep.  There are roughly 10 sheep for each person in Australia.  Tasmania is located in Australia and has some of the purest rainwater in the world. Most of the world’s opals come from Australia.  The children will make an Australian flag in centers.

Physical Development: Discussed: What do you buy that helps keep you safe?  Discussed what might happen if they fall off a bike and hit their head, knee, or elbow.  Discussed what you could buy and wear to help keep you safe.  

Mathematical Reasoning: What uniforms do you see each day?   We played a folder game.  We had to match the hat and pants to the correct job.  The children had to name the jobs and the letters they saw on the pieces.  

Afternoon Centers:  Center 1:Variety of toys  Center 2: Styling Shirt Art-The children will decorate the shirt and dip a star sponge into paint and then make prints on their shirts.  After the paint dried they sewed buttons on the shirt with yarn.   Center 3:  Australian Pride- The children made the Australian flag.  The children had strips of red paper to put in the corner of the blue paper  to look like a star.  They then made star prints on the flag.
