Today we had soccer with Zach. First we warmed up by running in place and walking around the gym backwards. Next, Coach Zach asked Pre-K if we could help him do his stinky laundry! He threw shirts all over the gym, and students had to pick them up with their feet, and then throw them into the goal/washing machine. Next, we pretended that cones were socks and hats, and we cleaned those up with our feet. Finally, we added the soap/soccer balls to the washing machines. After the laundry was clean, we helped put it all away.

  • We worked on our assignment from Isabella from last Friday. We listened to "Kangaroos" by Camille Saint-Saens, and we drew how we felt and what we heard, including dots for short sounds and lines for long sounds. Some students said they were "scared," "happy," or "surprised."
