Learning about Animals in PreK

The friends in PreK 103 have spent the last month exploring all things ANIMALS! We even went on a fun field trip to the Shedd Aquarium. We participated in interactive read alouds using Picture Exchange Communication Systems and felt story boards. Our stories included: “Goodnight, Gorilla,” “”I’m the Biggest Thing in the Ocean,” “Brown Bear, Brown Bear,” and “The Three Little Pigs.” We explored all things sensory in our sensory bin which had animals, hay and/or water each week. The students marble painted animals and created their own jelly fish as well. To top off the unit, Mr. Ben came for music and played animal-themed songs!
