Y week: plans

Here are the plans for Y week:

We're getting a late start with Y week because of Memorial Day and a busy Tuesday. But here are the plans for the rest of the week (which also happens to be potty-training week).

word cards: yellow, you, yes, yawn, young
poem:

The Yak
by Jack Prelutsky

Yickity-yackity, yickity-yak,
the yak has a scriffily, scraffily back;
some yaks are brown yaks and some yaks are black,
yickity-yackity, yickity-yak.

Sniggildy-snaggildy, sniggildy-snag,
the yak is all covered with shiggildy-shag;
he walks with a ziggildy-zaggildy-zag,
sniggildy-snaggildy, sniggildy-snag.

Yickity-yackity, yickity-yak,
the yak has a scriffily, scraffily back;
some yaks are brown yaks and some yaks are black,
yickity-yackity, yickity-yak.


Wednesday (math): yesterday. Connor (as with most children his age) gets confused by time words like yesterday, tomorrow, week, month, day, year. We'll discuss what these mean while looking at our calendar to help out. When we do our calendar each day we'll say, "Today is..." as we usually do, but we'll add "Yesterday was..." and "Tomorrow is..." as well.

Thursday (movement/music): yodel. We're going to learn to yodel. There's a lesson online and you can listen to the guy yodel and then copy him. I'm going to have the only yodeling 3-year-old around!

Friday (art project): yarn art.
(Yarn Art, using yellow construction paper, scissors, glue, crayons, yarn. 1. Prepare by cutting various colored pieces of yarn into different lengths. 2. Draw/color a shape or picture, such as a yo-yo or yak, onto a piece of yellow construction paper. 3. Glue the yarn onto the outline of the shape or picture.)
