Have a Terrific Weekend!
We'd like to welcome our new friend Alex to our class.
This week, we've continued our unit on balls. We tested rolling different types of balls and even tested a cotton ball. Your preschooler learned a new word: sphere and tried to roll a toy pancake, which is a flat circle. They really seem to enjoy experimenting.
Also, this week, we are learning to count in Spanish along with English. We love learning other languages. It helps us all communicate with each other.
Please take note of the below messages:
- Remember your preschooler loves getting out for a little fresh air, so please be sure to send your child in with a warm jacket and any other items necessary, such as, mittens and a hat. Weather permitting, we try to go outside for stroll or some playground activities.
- Thank you to everyone for sending in a warmer set of emergency change of clothes.
- Note for full day Preschool: This Friday, your child's sheet and blanket was sent home to launder. Please be sure to send them back in fresh and clean for your preschooler. Also, ask your child if they need a snuggie for nap/rest time. Most of our preschoolers love to snuggle with a small stuffed animal or pillow when resting. If so, please send in this item to add to their comfort.
- Reminder: Our class needs smocks for various projects, such as, when we work with paint. Yes, the paint we use is washable. Yet, I'd like them to have that extra barrier to keep their clothes protected. Please send your child in with something that they may put over their clothes. An old t-shirt that has been laundered, but you were thinking about getting rid of, would be ideal. Let's recycle those old t-shirts and have your children use them as smocks.
- LETTER OF THE WEEK
This week's letter of the week: Mm M is at the beginning of our friend Michael's name and for the sound we might make when something tastes really yummy, "Mmmmmm." We sky write " M" by sliding, sliding, sliding, and sliding (4 slides from the top). We Sky write "m" by sliding, climbing (back up), sliding(back down), climbing (back up), and sliding.
