“Letter V is for (Vehicles that) Vroom Week” Blog Recap!

Hello all,

“Letter V is for Vehicles that Vroom Week” was ViVid, Vigorous,  and ViVacious!  Although the letter V is not the most common letter in the alphabet, the students were quite Victorious when it came to bringing in great letter V/Vehicle shares.  As was to be expected, Various Vehicles that Vroom made their way into the share box throughout the week!  There were also some great Letter V/Vroom books that were sent in each day!  Well, “Letter V is for Vehicles that Vroom Week” has come and gone.  Read on below to discover the learning that took place and fun that was had throughout the week!

The students spent Monday and Tuesday morning working one on one with the teachers to complete their Letter V identification/fine motor activity pages. The teachers were so impressed with how easily the younger students recognized the letter V and also how well the older students remembered all things “V” during their morning work!  In the afternoon on Monday and Tuesday, the students created the twenty-second letter list of the year! As a whole group, the students took turns brainstorming and contributing words that begin with the letter V and also hunted around the classroom for letter V items!  Take a look at the list that Monday’s group came up with!  As you can see, the list was quite Voluminous!

 

How many V shares do YOU see?

Answer:  Vest, Visor, V Alphabot, Vegetables, and Vehicles!

 

 

Also on Monday, the students celebrated April Fool’s Day with a particularly interesting note!  Take a look at the station grouping section of the Park Prep “Daily Note” that was sent home on Monday.  Regardless of which station group the students were in, it was certainly was a busy day!

 

 

The fun continued on Thursday as the students began the art and musical exploration of the theme of the week – vehicles that Vroom!  For their morning work, the students created the following Vroom, Vroom Vehicle art project!

 

 

On Thursday, they created the following Vroom, Vroom Vehicle art project by pushing Various Vehicles through paint and “racing” them on the road!

 

 

During the afternoon, the students enjoyed singing along to the following song and also finalizing their study of La Música (Music) in Spanish class.

VROOM-VROOM

by Leanne Guenther
tune of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Vroom-vroom!  Zoom-zoom little car,
How I wonder where you are.

Driving down the streets all day,
Stop, then go — you never stay.

Vroom-vroom!  Zoom-zoom little car,
How I wonder where you are.

 

On Friday, the students began their day with a reading of the classic Mo Willem’s book, Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus!  In the story, we meet the Bus Driver who needs to leave for a while.  Before leaving, he asks the readers to do him a very important favor – Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive The Bus!  Shortly after, the Pigeon makes his very loud and very persistent debut.  From the title, you can probably tell that the Pigeon really wants to Vroom around all over town!  Thankfully the readers are there to remind him that he cannot drive the bus and before long the bus driver returns.  After enjoying the story, the students created the following silly craft with a vehicle of their choosing!

 

 

Friday afternoon wrapped up with a technology presentation all about – you guessed it, Vehicles that Vroom!  The students particularly loved observing and learning about the Various Vehicles that Vroom around in our neighborhood including:  police chasers, ambulances, fire engines, and even garbage trucks!  They also loved the catchy tune below.

 

Well, that is all for “Letter V is for Vehicles that VROOM Week”.  As always, we hope you enjoyed reading this week’s posting.  Thank you and have a wonderful weekend!
