Weekly Update 9/7-9/10

This week we talked about our rules at preschool and Kloefkorn. We talked about safe ways to move our bodies in the classroom, safe ways to use our hands, and we practiced using rhythm sticks.

During small groups this week the students cut and glued pictures, practiced balancing, and practiced throwing bean bags into different shaped containers.

Our social emotional curriculum focused on how to listen at school and how to focus your attention. We learned about our atten-to-scopes and how to use them. Ask your child if they can show you their atten-to-scopes!
