Hello Preschool Families!
The first week of school is coming to a close and we would love to give you an update on what your students have been learning about the past few days. We loved seeing you all at home visits and discussing safety with your children. This week we have reviewed the car and pedestrian safety lessons from our child protection unit and helped your student learn more about being safe. We have been exploring our classroom during our small group time. This week students were able to explore three different centers; the blocks, toys and puzzle, and the dramatic play. They also learned about how to play safely with their friends in each center, and about some of our rules that we follow in the classroom. We covered how to use safe hands, what to do with the tays and how to clean them up when we are finished playing. We have loved being able to sit and talk with your students during our family style meals and having great conversations while getting to know them.
We love seeing all of the family pictures that our students have brought back to hang on our wall and look froward to seeing the rest of them in the next few days. Students are able to bring water bottles with them to school. We ask that these bottles only contain water, and are easy for the children to open and close on their own. These bottles will remain in their backpacks, but they are free to drink from them throughout the day. If you haven’t done so already, please send a change of clothes in case of accidents or spills in a gallon bag marked with their name.
The sign up sheets for September home visits is up on the website. You can find it under the “Home Visits and Conferences” on the preschool website. This is password protected. Please use the Password sent in the email reminder about this update. You can also go to the photos page for your class and see some great pictures of our first few days.
We are looking forward to working with you and your students this year and if you have any questions please let us know.
