November 8, 2019 – PK3 Teacher’s Notes
It was a busy week after all the excitement of Halloween! We are continuing to study some of the Old Testament classics in Jesus time. Daniel and the Lion’s Den was a hit this week. We learned Daniel was thrown into the lion’s den for doing what was right (praying to God and not king Darius), and God protected him! We continued our theme of Safe and Healthy Me. This week we focused on healthy choices. We continued using our pretzel breathing technique this week.
Here are a few highlights from the week:
- Experimented with “Germs” to see how clean we can get our hands
- Talked about going to the doctor and learned about all their tools
- Made our H is for Horse and continued learning our alphabet sounds
- Played “Tape the Lion’s Mouth Shut” while blindfolded
- Learned that a lion’s roar is very loud and experimented with dropping different things to see what would be louder and what would be softer (pictured below)
- Practiced our cutting and name writing
- Painted a Lion Mask and Cut their hair
Stay warm this weekend!
I hope you have had as great a week as we have in our three year old classroom. This week in Jesus time we have been learning about Daniel and the lions’ den and how God protected his faithful servant. We have had fun playing in the gym and getting exercise playing with hula hoops and balls since the rain has kept us inside. This has actually gone right along with our theme of Safe and Healthy Me. Here are some highlights of our week:
- painting and fine motor practice cutting manes on extremely cute lions (look for them next week in the hall!)
- rehearsing AB patterns using all kinds of objects
- pretending to be lions as we roared and exercised to the song “The Lion Sleeps Tonight”
- listening to sounds and determining which is louder 😛
- reading and discussing safety rules
- practicing how to properly wash our hands, keep our germs away from our friends and staying healthy
Next week we will be learning about Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, ABC patterns, eating healthy foods, and the letters I and H.
