Class experience

US Grade Pre-Kindergarten
Students will listen to stories and look at pictures and ask and answer questions throughout, practice taking turns talking, listening and sharing observations about squirrels.  We will also work on our fine motor, number and listening skills working on the included printables.

Learners will find out fun facts about squirrels, strengthen fundamental PreK skills like literacy, listening and sharing, predicting, problem solving, observation and speaking in turn while we talk about squirrels and practice fine motor work engaging with the in-class squirrel projects.  

**In order to promote class discussions and participation I do not mute learners' microphones. This also helps learners practice their social skills such as active listening and taking turns. In order for this to work, students need to be in a quiet setting away from background noises (loud conversations, telephone calls, t.v, etc.). **

Please print out the I Spy count and write pages and the squirrel puzzle page. BEFORE CLASS, please cut apart the 10 squirrel puzzle pieces and mix them up so we can put our squirrel puzzle back together as a class. Please bring your favorite writing tool to class! ** It's not mandatory that your learner participate in each activity. If they prefer to observe and complete the projects after class, that's OK too!
