2K Little Learners — Mrs. Schumacher

Week of Sept. 22


Welcome to the 2K Ranch!

2K learners have a farm E-I-E-I-O..." We will of course have to sing that again for    Farm/Rodeo    week, along with a farm animal version of   "wheels on the bus":    The cows on the farm go moo moo ... down on the farm. The farm theme continues with a focus on horses and the work of a cowboy/cowgirl  We will read   Mrs. Wishy Washy's Farm, and use the smart board to watch a clip about horses.  We will learn about taking care of horses and cows. The block area will be set up with cows to corral in a block fence and we'll create a special horse handprint. Watch for a color sorting barn activity in folders that students can continue to have fun with at home. 

In Jesus time, we will finish our creation art project and celebrate and thank God for all he has made.  We will sample apples from our "aplpe tree" . 2K will  listen to & sing "God made the Earth"  & "God made food" by Karyn Henley and the "Butterfly song"  All can be found on youtube if you wish to enjoy at home too. 

* We will begin having Library time with Mrs. Willman ( We got to say hi to her last week) and check out a book beginning this Thursday, Sept. 24!  We have a board book collection for them to pick from. Please return the book on the following Thursday. Thank you!
