"Do you want to build a snowman?" PreK sure did! The first day back after Christmas break, the children decorated their very own snowboy and snowgirl. We discussed how God made each snowflake unique, as well as making them unique. Psalm 139:14, "I am fearfully and wonderfully made."
We counted snowballs up to 13, our number of the week. The boys and girls also played a fun roll the dice, draw a snowman game. The number they rolled determined what part of the snowman they drew. The game sure helped to sharpen our counting skills.
I also tested the children's gross motor skills by playing snowball toss with them. Upon hearing the initial letter sound in their name, they had to stand and catch the snowball.
The boys and girls are still loving our music study. Vocabulary words such as pitch, audience, and applause were discussed and demonstrated. All kinds of instruments were explored and played by the children at different tempos. Our room even has a recording studio complete with instruments and a karaoke machine!
One of the highlights of the week was the "Christmas Show and Tell." The students practiced their public speaking skills by sharing their favorite Christmas gift with the class. Santa was certainly good to all of them!
Our class wishes everyone a happy New Year and looks forward to sharing more exciting 2019 adventures!
