Thursday, May 7, 2015


Theme:  Letter Y/y
Letter Y is fun to make and fun to say its sound.  It is kind of hard to write.  Some of our focus words included yellow, yak, yogurt, and yes.  We read the book, Yes Day!  We talked about what we would want our parents to say "Yes" to if we had a "Yes Day".  We wrote Yes and practiced identifying it.

Show & Tell:  We had fun seeing a yak, a yellow star, a yellow hummer, and some yellow super heros.  Everyone was able to answer a Yes or No question by identifying the correct word on the board.

  • Yogurt & Yellow Crackers
  • Yellow Crackers, Cheese, & Gushers
  • Strawberries & Pretzels
  • Mother's Day Gifts--Each child did such a good job and is very excited to honor you this Mother's Day :)
  • Yoda for May the 4th
  •  Yarn Scraps
Writing:  Practiced Y/y and Yes

Science:  We felt some wool, alpaca, and buffalo fur.  We learned a little about how it becomes yarn.  We also learned what kinds of clothing come from animal yarn while other clothing comes from plant yarn.
