So sorry to get this post up late! We had a lot of fun learning about tubes and tunnels last week. We finished talking about where we can find them and started talking about how do we make and use them. We learned that we can find tubes and tunnels in so many different places. We took a virtual tour of a pet store and found some tubes and tunnels, talked about animals that burrow in tunnels underground, felt our pulse and talked about how our veins and arteries are tubes, and watched a video on barrel waves and surfing them. Students really showed an interest in our veins being tubes. We watched a short video clip on how our blood moves through these tubes to and from our heart. They loved being able to see the blue veins on their wrists.
In second steps last week we spent time reviewing the rules at Pyrtle school. We reviewed our rules on the rug, during choice time, in the bathroom, the hallway and on the playground. Students were able to recall and tell us what the rules are. We then practiced and handed out lots of “paws” when students were following the expectations.
If you have not done so already, please take the time to sign up for April home visits. You can follow the link above to your class sign ups. If your child is going to kindergarten next year please use the kindergarten visit sign up sheet, if you child is returning to preschool next year please use the April home visit sign up sheet. You only need to sign up for one slot. We are looking forward to these visits, as they are our last of the year and the kiddos have made so much growth!
This is also a good time to let you know we will be having a bus evacuation this Thursday the 27th. The AM class will practice after school at 11:30. The PM class will practice before school at 12:15. All students participate in these drills even if they do not ride the bus normally. We will stay at the school and practice getting on and off in a safe manner then meeting at a safe spot.
For those attending Kindergarten next year please come to the Orientation!
