This was certainly a week fit for a prince or princess! This week was Audrey’s choice week and she wanted to learn about Princesses and Queens. It was a royal week filled with fairy tale stories and plenty of outside play thanks to the early beautiful weather!
We started the week talking about the Queen of England, where she lives and how we have a president instead of a queen or king. The children made crowns and pink princess play dough. The math graph had the children choosing whether they would want to be a prince, princess, or knight.
Tuesday was our Letter-of-the-Week day. We made Q’s into queens. Music and movement with Jeanne Bassis followed outside play. There was a lot of singing, moving, and grooving!
Wednesday was our Prince/Princess Ball! There were plenty of sparkly dresses and crowns! The children made princess wands and knight shields. Miss Rebecca came to read stories and the day ended by using boxes to build a castle in the classroom.
Thursday’s story was “The Princess and the Pizza” by Mary Jane and Herm Auch. It was our cooking day and the children made their own pizzas. They enjoyed being able to shape the dough and put on their own toppings. This week’s kindergarten readiness friends learned about the Pledge of Allegience.
