“Letter Q is for Quack Week” Blog Recap!

Hello all,

“Letter Q is for Quack (Ducks) Week” went by – well, Quickly!  Read on below to learn about all the learning that took place and fun that was had!

Compared to Letter P last week, Letter Q’s share box was Quite light.  The letter Q share box contained quails, Q-Tips, “quicksand”, Queen Elsa and of course many non-letter Q items that move Quickly!  These items included motorcycles, planes, trains, race cars, tigers, and more!  While many of the transportation vehicles did not start with the letter Q, there was one that stood out, the most famous race car of all – Lightning McQueen!

Throughout the mornings at the beginning of the week, the students worked on their letter Q identification activities.  The students worked diligently while some of the younger students worked Quickly.  Either way, the students did Quality work!  The hard work continued into the afternoons where the students created a surprisingly long letter Q list.  Some words were “inventive” like the word Quencil (a letter Q pencil) while others were just silly like the word Quetzal!  The students all chuckled when someone suggested “Quetzal” for the list, thinking that the student was mispronouncing the word pretzel.  Fortunately, the teachers were there to affirm the student’s addition to the list and show a picture of a Quetzal!  Here is the letter Q bird known as a Quetzal!

 

 

Here is their list for letter Q week which also proved to be Quite wacky.  Words like “Cucumber” (Q-cumber) and “Cute” (Q-ute) did not make the list!  Wow, the English language sure is tricky!  Here is what they came up with and also some shares!

 

 

On Friday morning, the students were visited by two very special guests – Ms. Lesley and Donnie the Dragon – from True Dental Care!  Seeing that February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, Ms. Lesley thought she would come in to discuss the importance of taking good care of the teeth in our mouth!  The students warmly welcomed Ms. Lesley and Donnie to PPA and the learning and fun quickly began!  First, Ms. Lesley read a great story called Sugar Bugs which explained the importance of brushing your teeth twice a day, for two minutes at a time!  She also explained that it is important for everyone with teeth in their mouth to visit the dentist two times a year.  Ms. Lesley explained that TWO is the magic number when it comes to taking good care of our teeth/mouth.  The students had a blast learning all about oral health care.  A special PPA Thank You to Ms. Lesley and Donnie the Dragon for visiting!  Take a peek below to see some of the highlights from Ms. Lesley’s visit to PPA!

 

 

Well, that is all for “Letter Q is for Quack Week”.  As always, thank you for reading.  Have a fun and safe weekend.  See you next week!
