Week two of preschool was a success! This is a fun group of kids. Here they are during playtime, the girls in the kitchen and the boys putting cars in the "castle jail".
Our story for the week was Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. This story focuses on letter identification so we did a lot of playing with letters.
Each child had a plate of letter crackers with the letters in their names and they had to match and glue them. They did pretty well with this activity.
Then we went outside to hunt for letters buried in sand. You can't see the letters here because the kiddos had already snatched them up as I grabbed my camera! It was fun to see how many they could find.
After snack and outside time, we painted our own coconut trees.
On the second day of preschool, we explored a coconut. We felt the outside, noted its color and shook to hear the liquid inside.
Then we cracked it open. We saw the color inside and felt it was smooth. Some tasted it. For snack we had a Pina Colada Pop so they could taste something with coconut milk in it.
We came inside and found those missing letters again! This time they were hiding under the cracked coconut halves. The kiddos enjoyed seeing what letters they found under the coconut they picked.
Then we took our coconut tree paintings and turned them into Chicka Chicka Boom Boom trees by adding letter stickers.
