I Can Do It

Have a short discussion about the things that Pre K children can do. As they tell you, make a list on big paper.  Pre K children are very proud of their capabilities!   Next, have children spread out, and explain that now they are going to show you how to do the activities on the list. You may want to add a few of your own.  See the following list of beginning solo pantomimes.
