“Number Review Week” Blog Recap!

Hello all,

With the entire alphabet investigation complete, the students of PPA spent this past week reviewing another preschool favorite theme – NUMBERS!  After presenting a wide assortment of number-themed shares at morning meeting each day, the students headed to their morning activity stations.  Naturally, Number Review was infused into their stations.  Whether they were counting and digging for dinosaur bones at the sand table, unlocking the number locks, or playing Number Bingo with pals, the students sure had a blast!  Be sure to click below to learn all about what the students were up to during “Number Review Week”.

The students participated in NuMeRoUs Number Review activities this past week!  Here the students are working together to play Number Bingo on Tuesday!

 

 

On Wednesday morning, the students practiced their number recognition by completing some fun Connect-the-Number-Dot activities!  The students were so excited to see the fish, octopus, flower, dog and birds come to life!

 

 

On Thursday, the students poured salt into a tray and then began some sensory play to help practice writing their numbers!  They also loved creating “charts” like the ones we do each morning at our meetings!  What fun!

 

 

The students enjoyed getting super silly with numbers at the STOMP game on Friday!  As the name of the game says… STOMP is all about stomping and sending numbers FLYING!  It’s a race against time to reassemble the numbers in their correct position!  🙂  What a fun way to wrap up the week!

 

 

During the afternoons of “Number Review Week”, the students enjoyed participating in a fun game called, “Number Motion”.  Would you like to play it at home now?

 

Jump up and down – SEVEN times!

Flap your arms like a bird – TEN times!

Blink your TWO eyes – THREE times!

Clap your TWO hands – TEN times!

Hop on ONE leg – FIVE times!

 

They also loved “Classroom Counting” during the afternoons!  What is “Classroom Counting” you say?  Well, did you know that there are FIVE bathrooms in the PPA classroom?  Did you know that there are TWELVE tables in the PPA classroom?  The students had a blast finding and counting all the various materials around the classroom!  They started small with fixtures – ONE piano, TWO Kitchens, THREE Rugs, etc.  Quickly, the numbers/”Classroom Counting” began to grow and grow!  One student suggested that we find out how many books are in the PPA classroom… we stopped at 100 since the PPA Library is EXPLODING with books!  What a fun activity it was!

Well, that is all for “Number Review Week” but you can always continue the number fun at home! 🙂  As always, thank you for reading and have a wonderful weekend!
