Students have been analyzing books from the perspectives of both a reader and a writer. On the first read of a book, students think about the book as a reader and on the second read, they think about the book as a writer. You can try this work at home, too! On the first read, ask your child questions about the plot of the story. On the second read, ask your child questions about the way the author wrote the book. Here's a writing example! In a story that shows persuasion like, A Pet for Petunia by Paul Schmid, you might ask: What are some of the reasons Paul gives to convince his reader? Where does Paul use sparkly words to convince his reader?

In Miss Porter's Preschool class we have started our unit on transportation. We started the lesson by brainstorming types of vehicles. Students thought of everything from a car to a jet to a wagon! During learning centers, some students used magnetic letters and letter cubes to spell out different vehicle names. Other students used pattern blocks to design vehicles, while others matched vehicles with letters on them to a letter board. For science, students used trains to make ramps and roads to observe and discuss what happened when trains rolled, spinned, slid, or even collided! Students are very excited for this new area of exploration!

The students in Mrs. Peterson’s preschool class are working on following multi step directions. The students participated in a directed drawing activity to go along with their hibernation unit. They were given a piece of paper and a marker and had to follow along the step by step directions to create a picture of a polar bear. Each picture turned out different and personal to that student’s interpretation of the directions! Such a fun activity to show the importance of the process not just the product!
