Hello families!

Next week we will be exploring the alphabet using stamps, measuring the circumference of balls with string, and practicing rhyming pairs with the song “Down by the Bay.” Next week we will also be reading the classic tale of “The Three Billy Goats Gruff.” Our shape of the week is a rectangle, and our focus question is “Do all balls bounce?”

Our Second Steps lesson next week is on “Following Directions.” Practice and repetition are necessary for children to remember and use skills correctly. This week children learn how to follow directions by practicing the learned skills of self-talk, listening, and focusing attention. The ability to listen and follow directions accurately will help children learn.

Thank you for providing a variety of balls for us to study in Preschool! We have got quite the collection going! If you haven’t already, it’s not too late to send one in.

A friendly reminder there is no school Tuesday, September 26th due to PLC.

Have a great weekend!

Allison
