We looked at the painting Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh and then used finger paint and paper to create our own!



Our Finished Masterpieces


Welcome to Pre-K Unit

We started out our year learning our friends names. We used tiles to help spell our names and our friends names.  We counted how many letters everyone had and then compared the amounts to see who had the most and and who had the least amount of letters. 


We also made self portraits! We used mirrors to look at the features we need to add to our art piece. Then we used a variety of items to make each feature.


In our Math center we counted out hearts for Chester raccoon from our story-The Kissing Hand.

We learned all about feelings. We matched certain feelings to situations on cards.  Then we made different feeling faces ourselves. Can you guess which feeling we are showing.


We also created different feeling faces using playdough on head cards.

Light Unit- February 2020

We studied a painting by Vincent van Gogh- The Starry Night. We then made our own paintings using finger paint! It was so much fun to swirl all the paint!

In the block center we built letters and then made their shadows using a flashlight.

In Dramatic Play we made a camp site. We packed food and items to we would need and we used flashlights to create stars on top of our tent.

At the Science Center we explored light with mirrors, prisms, colored paddles and flashlights. We made rainbows with the prisms and saw how the size changed when we moved the flashlight!

We used the smartboard to make shadow puppets. We even made up our own shadow puppets and told stories with them.
