Pre-K Highlights

March 4th – March 8th

Weekly Theme: Construction/Buildings

Weekly Letter: Yy

Weekly Number: 18


Hello Pre-K Families!


This week we will be learning about construction and buildings. We will use different building materials to make different structures such as a house, a skyscraper, a castle, a school, or any building of choice. Materials we will use are blocks, power clicks, color connectors, bristle blocks, Lincoln logs, legos and more. We will also be learning about different tools that construction workers use. Students will learn that our structures have to be strong on the bottom to support the top.


We are also learning about the letter Y this week. Students will learn how to properly form this letter as well as brainstorm words that start with Y. We will create a letter Y yo-yo craft, a yellow collage, and a silly craft using yarn. We will also color a construction tool book, create a structure with with paper shapes, and complete a construction pattern worksheet.


Our number of the week is 18. Students will learn how to properly form this number as well as recognize what a group of 18 things looks like. We will learn that the one in an 18 stands for one group of ten with the 8 representing 8 “ones” left over.
