Literacy Night is tonight! We hope to see you all there in you PJ’s and with your favorite book. It is from 5-6pm in our preschool classroom. We will have a small snack a Dr. Seuss photo booth and a video to share. Please come in the front doors. The whole family is welcome to come!
We have had fun this week celebrating Dr. Seuss birthday as well. We read several books, made green eggs and ham/turkey and graphed colored goldfish. Both classes have now had Pat the Cat come visit as well. She came dresses in her Cat in the Hat costume and shared her stuffed animals with us. Make sure to check out the pictures on the photos page.
We really got in to our Tubes and Tunnels study this week. We defined what a tub and a tunnel are and what the difference is. A tube is anything that is round, long and hallow that can be open or closed on both ends. A tunnel is a large tube that you can travel through. We went on a walk in the school to look for different tube and tunnels. We saw a lot of cool things. We have also been using our toy tunnel in the classroom during all these indoor recess days to have some fun traveling through. The students asked some very great questions about tubes that we hope to find all the answers to during our study. We hope that your student is starting to recognize some tubes and tunnels with you as well!
In Second Steps this week we talked about joining in play. We practiced watching what a person was doing, telling them we like something about what they are doing and then come up with a play idea and ask to join in. Below is the home link for this lesson. Practicing these skills at home will help your child become more familiar with them and easier to use and retrieve from their memory bank in the moment. Thanks for taking the time to look at these each week!
It has recently come to our attention that there are some scary videos going around on the the internet. We would like to take this time to remind you that supervision is important when your child is using technology, wether it’s your phone, a tablet or the computer. We have had a couple families report that their child has seen these videos and have been frightened. This is also a good time to remind you all that for our students ages research states that no more than 2 hours of technology should be accessed each day. This is important because the first five years is when their little brains are making the most growth and connections. Please let us know if you have any questions about this!
REMINDER: PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES NEXT WEEK!
As always, thank you for all you do to support your students learning.
Mrs. Losey and Ms. Jamie
