Today we combined two of Ms. Jessica’s favorite topics, Music and Math! Did you know that the a longer bar creates a lower note? Ask you preschoolers for all the specifics, because they picked up on this relationship quickly!
We talked more about how length is measured. Distance, time, height are all things that you can talk to your kids about to reinforce the idea of length.
This book from Scholastic’s Math Counts Series has amazing pictures and helped me illustrate some of the things that we were talking about. I love a books that can give the kids a visual and a way for closure at the end of a session.
Lastly, we said a short poem, sang a medium length song, and a really long song. Can you guess which is which?
One, two, buckle my shoe.
Three, four, shut the door.
Five, six pick up sticks.
Seven, eight lay them straight.
Nine, ten do it again.
The ants go marching one by one....
Five green Speckled frogs
Happy 100th Day of Preschool!
