This week was filled with ZAINY fun with Mr. Z!

The children in the 5 Day Pre-K class started a unit on Clothing.  They were given a huge bag of clothes and they had to describe and sort them various ways.  They learned about SMALL, MEDIUM, and LARGE and why knowing the size of a piece of clothing is important.  The children read a book about washing and drying clothes and they were able to load washing machines after sorting the clothes into lights, colors, and darks.  We talked about what you would wear if you went to different places.  The children were then given material and cloth and had to dress a paper doll to match where they were going.  We can’t have party dresses at the beach!!!! Many girls created beautiful dresses for weddings and dances.  They even made high heal shoes for the paper doll to wear!  The children also spent the week with our letter person, Mr. Z.  They enjoyed many Z activities but I think the most favorite had to be taking a school-wide survey on who was wearing zippers, buttons, snaps and velcro.  They kept track by using tally marks.  They were so proud of themselves when they asked each class!  We all agree that this week was filled with ZAINY fun!!!!!

We had so much fun celebrating birthdays together!

The children loved sorting laundry. They even matched socks and folded their "clean" loads!  Hanging clothes on a clothing line kept their interest.
