The month of October is fire safety month so we have been learning what to do if there is ever a fire, as well things that we shouldn’t play with.  We started on Monday with fire safety related literacy & math centers from Having Fun in Primary.  There were also a few centers from Home School Creations.

We discussed how there are things that are not safe for kids to touch or play with, we then sorted pictures into two categories ‘safe to touch‘ and ‘not safe to touch‘.  During free choice centers students got to sort the pictures on their own, working with a partner.

Finally today we read the story Stop Drop and Roll by Margery Cuyler and made a firetruck craft courtesy of Miss-Kindergarten.

This week is color week and we are having lots of fun with different colors!  We read the story Brown Bear, Brown Bear by Bill Martin Jr & Eric Carle.  We retold the story by creating paper bag puppets of the brown bear with the other animal characters in the story.  You can get the paper bag puppets from Mrs. Ricca’s Kindergarten.

During math workshop there were activities that help students our to read color words, number words, and help students with their number recognition.  Most of these activities come from the Moffatt Girls October No Prep packet.

Finally for our science experiment; students learned the word hypothesis and how to make a guess on what might happen as a result of an experiment.  We took drops of a couple of colors in whole milk.  Then we dipped Q-Tips in dish soap and then dipped the Q-Tips in the milk with the food coloring.  The dish soap pushed the colors away and turned the colors tie die.  The lesson plan can be found here.
