This week was jammed pack full of fun! We learned more about trees and what animals live in trees. We learned about the two types of trees; deciduous and evergreen. Students loved talking about the deciduous trees and how they were “naked” when the leaves fall off. We looked for clues on trees to help us decide if an animal lived there. We also talked about how some creatures that live in trees can be helpful (ladybugs) and some can be harmful (aphids).
We had the fire fighters from Engine 12 come join us on Wednesday. They told us all about how they help keep us safe and how they keep themselves safe while fighting fires. The fire fighters showed us different tools they use and have on their rigs. They put on their gear so we could see how they look and sound different if they ever come into a building looking for us. We want to prevent students from being afraid of them if they ever need help. We also learned the difference between a fire engine and a fire truck. Fire engines have water and fire trucks have a ladder! Thanks Engine 12!!! Check out the pictures on the photos page.
In our Child Protection Unit (Safety curriculum) this week we learned some ways to stay safe (stop and think is it safe, what’s the rule, say words that mean no, tell a grown up). We learned about the always ask first rule, gun safety, fire safety, sharp object safety, dog safety, and what to do if the get lost. You can access the home link below to see how you can support these skills at home. We had a blast practicing asking first before we pet a stuffed dog on a leash.
Thank you to all the families who came out and joined us to paint pumpkins. We had a blast seeing all their creative work. We took some great pictures of this event. Make sure to check out the photos page. Our next home visits will be starting in November. Please take some time to sign up through the link above for your students class.
Thank you for all you do and partnering with us to give your student the best preschool experience we can! Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
