  • We are:• Beginning to determine if two shapes arethe same size• Building an understanding ofdirectionality and positions such as:inside, outside, on, over etc.• Developing our ability to take turns andcooperate
  • We are:• Beginning to recognize, describe,compare, and name common shapes• Demonstrating an increased ability toset goals and follow through on plans• Remaining persistent and concentratingon a task over a period of time
  • The students are looking through books about buildings to find information.We are:• Using pictures and illustrations toaid comprehension• Using a variety of resources togather information• Learning how to handle books—one page at a time; front to back
  • We asked the students to findletters, numbers and shapes on our building plans. We are: • Progressing in hand-eye coordination to recreate shapes and fine motor skills to use writing tools • Identify, name, and create common two dimensional shapes in play situations
  • We are:• Approaching taskswith increasedimagination andinventiveness• Demonstrating abilityto set goals anddevelop and followthrough on plans• Exploring ways thatnatural resources areused in ourenvironment• Gaining informationthrough books, mediaand conversations withpeers
  • We asked the students to compare weights of different building materials—nuts, bolts and washers etc.We are:• Investigating unfamiliar objects withsimple equipment• Making predictions• Investigating natural laws such asgravity• Recording observations
  • We are:• Gaining ability to use different art media in a variety of ways for creativeexpression and representation• Beginning to understand and share opinions about artistic products andexperiences• Demonstrating an increased capacity to use materials purposefully
  • We are:• Developing a growing awareness ofjobs and what it takes to perform them• Developing dexterity to use writingand drawing tools• Identifying and creating shapes• Using terms to compare—bigger,smaller, etc.
  • During the buildings project, westudied the story of “The ThreeLittle Pigs” We read differentversions, voted on our favorite andtalked about what makes buildingsstrong/weak. We also added thefelt board pieces for the story toour Library center for the childrento retell the story.We are:•  Identifying characters in favorite books• Retelling events from a story through a variety of media and play events• Using an increasingly complex spoken vocabulary• Increasing our ability to sustain interactions with peers by helping, sharingand discussion
  • We are:•  Solving problems through trial and error• Developing increasing ability to find more than onesolution to a problem• Maintaining concentration on task for increasingamount of time• Progressing in ability to put together and take apartshapes
  • We are:• “Reading familiar words of‘Environmental Print’ (Pizza Hut,McDonalds etc.• Understanding that print has meaningand a function• Demonstrating cooperative behaviors• Beginning to recognize that coins andmoney have value• Distributingobjects into equalsets (passing outpizza slices)• Play writing—fromtop to bottom andin horizontal rows
  • We are:• Building an understanding ofdirectionality words (on, next to, etc)• Beginning to use a variety of tools tomeasure and gain information• Beginning to use terms to compare(longer, taller, shorter, more, less)
  • We are:• Developing increasingability to count insequence to 10• Beginning to use one-to-one correspondencewhen counting objects• Showing growth inmatching and sorting• Using terms thatcompare: more, less
