  2. 2. 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
  3. 3. 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
  4. 4. 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
  5. 5. 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
  6. 6. 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
  7. 7. 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
  8. 8. 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.
  9. 9. 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
  10. 10. 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
  11. 11. 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
  12. 12. 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)
  13. 13. 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
