Today we read another silly Pete the Cat book about about his yellow shirt with 4 groovy buttons!! Baylor brought snacks today to go along with our story! Everyone had fun counting the m&m buttons on the rice krispy shirts!! Thanks for the GROOVY snacks today Baylor!! :) We decided to use Pete's head and button from Baylor's snack to make a project. I think they turned out super cute!
Listen to the story with your child so they can show you what they learned today!! I think you will be pretty impressed! We talked about subtraction!! Preschoolers subtracting??!! Pretty smart, huh??!! Seriously though they really did a great job with the concept of starting with a number and then taking one or more away. We played a button counting game today at circle time so they could have some hands on counting, adding and subtracting practice.

We made our letter Bb book to keep at school. We are adding Buzz words that we see in our little readers. We will continue to practice these words everyday at school and add to our list when we make our new books. You might want to make flashcards at home for your child to practice these words. I know it seems early but I promise your kids are ready for this!! Some of the words we are learning are called sight words which means they can not be phonetically sounded out.....therefore they are just memorized by sight. That's is why the more they are exposed to these sight words the better!! They love reading their little books to their reading buddies!! We ran out of time and they made me promise that we would read them on Wednesday!! I love it!! :)
We played the name game to find out who has a letter Bb in their name. I opened up a new center this morning and you should have heard the girls squeal!! And the boys were mad that they didn't get a turn....I had to make another promise for Wednesday!! You would have thought I bought them a pony!! It is a writing center!!! It is a teacher's dream for students to be this excited to write words and letters!!!! There were color books available as well but most of the girls were looking at all of the charts and writing color words and making shapes and writing what they were drawing!!! My heart just skipped a beat thinking about it!! ;)
There you have it.....Another GROOVY day at Busy Bee Preschool!!
