Preschool.... "At a Glance"

It was raining  and dreary outside, but busy and exciting inside preschool!

During the morning, the children made letters (including the letter “V”, our letter of the week) out of playdough.
The children also built a lego creation as a table group to “plan” where they were going to play/work today.
Dancing with scarves finished off our morning!

During the afternoon, the children discussed how they were all feeling today and why.  They then made  their “faces” out of paper plates to show their emotions.
They played “telephone” with the teachers to “plan” where they were going to work/play today.
We finished the day off by playing games of “duck, duck, goose” and  “red light, green light”!

Preschool... "At a Glance"

We had another great day!

During the morning, the children played/worked hard today.  They poured and sifted at the water and sand tables.  They played “house” and “cook” at the pretend play area.  They made their own music  with a keyboard (new to the classroom this week).   We read books and painted pictures as well.
The children recalled the activities that they did, today, by telling their teachers through a “microphone”.
Before it was time to go home we danced and “froze” to music!!

During the P.M. class, the children used musical instruments while singing songs with their teachers.
During small group time, the children counted,sorted and made patterns with multi-colored bears.
The children drew pictures to “plan” what they were going to do during work/play time.`
We finished the day with outdoor play and doing “hopscotch”.

Preschool "At a glance"

In our A.m class,  during small group time, the children were encouraged to make patterns, shapes, and letters in playdough.  
The children decided where in the room they wanted to play/work by seeking it out  (planning) with a flashlight.
We recalled what the children played with, during work time, by walking to the area and counting how many steps it took to get there.
Our gross motor activity today was to “groove” like an animal moves. Some of the movements were “slither like a snake” , “waddle like a duck” and “ fly like a bird”.  The children loved this!

In our P.m class, the students listened to a story during small group time.  After the story was finished, they were encouraged  to draw a picture that  predicted what could happen next.
The children recalled what they played with today by filling a purse with what they played with today.
The gross motor activity today, was dancing with pom poms to music.  When the music stopped, the children stopped. We had lots of fun with this!

Reminder:  There will be no preschool on Thursday, December 8th.

Welcome back

This week:

Letter: Z
Color: Pink
Number: 14
Shape: Heart

Thanks for being so patient with us as we get things switched around and figured out now that Mrs. Amanda is gone. The transition has seemed to be pretty seamless except for the occasional "I miss Mrs. Amanda!" haha (we all do!)

Today we had the chance to go outside. We thought we better get it before we get yucky weather again.

Please see the sign-up sheet in the parent waiting room for the Valentine's party we are having next week. If you have any questions please let us know! :)

Have a great week!

Wednesday January 20th 2016

Letter: N n
Number: 11
Color: Brown
Shape: Oval

AM: This morning we worked on what starts with N and sounds that N makes. We also created greeting cards and chose who we wanted to give them to. During large group time we shut off all the lights and use flashlights to light our way around the room.

PM: This afternoon we counted to 11 and named words that start with N. We made pictures with ovals and numbers on them and practiced writing our names. We also made large and small shapes with tape all over the room and jumped in them to music. When the music stopped we have to name the shape we were in. We had tons of fun and worked off some energy.

Reminder: Please be checking your parent mail boxes. Mid-January Newsletters went out today!!

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!!
