Wenesday: Blue Bird

Mar 16, 2011   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  No Comments

Calendar:  Discussed calendar  in English and Spanish. Mallory was the calendar and weather girl for this week.  She found the day of the week in Spanish, added the number to the calendar and discussed the weather.  She reviewed her colors in English, Spanish and Sign Language:  green, red, yellow, brown, orange, black, white, pink, purple.  She told us the words in Sign language and Spanish:  eat, snow, thank you, please, more, friend, bug, milk, smile, up, love, all done.

Songs: Discussed: What makes you happy? How do you show it? The children told me that when they are happy they smile. I explained that the bluebird is often a symbol of happiness because the bluebird flies and sings when its happy. I demonstrated and practiced the sign for “bird” by opening and closing my thumb and my index finer in front of my mouth/nose twice.

Afternoon Centers: Center 1: Blocks!Center 2: I children made bluebird shakers by gluing one plug into the tube, placing shaker mix inside the tube and gluing the remaining plug. Next the children cut a beak from scrap paper and glued it to the tube, stuck the eyes on, and glued the feathers on for wings.
