We are thankful at Jackson Elementary!
Before STAAR week, Pre-K had fun guessing Whose Feet? in the Jackson Library. After reading My Eyes are Big and Red, the kids guessed what animal on which the story was based. Then they had to guess what animals were on the poster just based on the feet. At the tables, they played the Whose Feet? game on the app, colored the feet of Jan Brett animals, and listened to the fun Maple Leaf songs.
Last week in the Jackson Library, Pre-K read farm animal stories. After singing Hap Palmer’s Big Red Hen song, we read Barnyard Banter and the kids identified the animals by their sounds. They explored the Canticos Chickies/Pollitos app to create their own song, listened to the Chick song (featured also in different languages), and decorated an egg. During check out, we enjoyed Alina Celeste‘s Pollitos song video.
Pre-K had fun today exploring what animals and insects are hiding inside the tall, tall grass. At the end of the lesson, the kids were introduced to Jack Hartmann’s version of the Tooty-Ta Dance.
Pre-K had fun today in the Jackson Library with sequencing during the story, The Hug Machine by Scott Campbell. At the tables, they listened to Valentine songs and created a card for their teachers! Before they left, they practiced an alphabet dance for the video, “What Do the Letters Say?”
Before the break, Pre-K had fun with a classic tale in the Jackson Library. As we read There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, the kids put beanbag animals into the old lady’s mouth. She sure can eat!
