Week 5

This week has been all about sorting! Sorting our maths materials, sorting shapes and even sorting letters! We have learnt that we always need a rule when sorting and that we can change the rule and sort again! One of our favourite games this week has been when our teachers sorted us and we needed to work out how they sorted us. This game is called ‘what’s my rule?’. Some of the ways we have sorted our maths tools is by: colour, shape, size and object. We love sorting!

Another busy week for the Preps at MPPS. This week, we have been learning all about the letter Ll. We made L leaves in our Alphabet Scrapbook, we drew pictures of things starting with L and we even wrote down some L words! In writing, we discussed what we like to do on our birthday and then we drew pictures and wrote about it. We learnt about graphs this week in numeracy and we even made a birthday graph where we sorted and ordered all our birthdays. We are trying very hard to remember when our own birthdays are! We have been talking about calendars, the days of the week and the date each day. Of course, we had some great developmental play during Friday Fun and some of us have even been doing a Finger Gym on Friday afternoons to help get our hands strong so writing is easier!

It’s been a short but busy week for the preps at MPPS. In literacy this week, we have been learning all about the letter Ss! We have started using our handwriting books and we’ve done some fantastic writing and drawing about our favourite toy! In numeracy, we discussed the difference between maths tools and toys and we’ve started to record our maths thinking in our maths books. A great week in Prep A, B, C and D.

Welcome to Prep 2017!

Welcome to the MPPS Prep blog for 2017!

The Prep blog is a great way to keep up to date with our learning. We will regularly post updates from our classrooms, so please check in and feel free to leave comments.

Wow, the term is flying by! It’s already Week 3! While our main goals this term are focused around our Establishment Program, including the routines and procedures of school, we are also beginning to have more structured lessons in both numeracy and literacy. In numeracy, we are learning to recognise and count collections and to write the digits 0-9. While in literacy, we are learning about letters, sounds and words. Starting from Week 3, we will have a weekly letter focus in all the Prep classes. Our first letter will be… Ss!

As well as all our learning in the last couple of weeks, we have also been participating in developmental play with our friends, as you can see below. We have been so busy, each day is flying by!
