This week we began our Signs Study! We have been discussing that signs give us information and have identified lots of different signs around the building, in our classroom, and in books. We talked about what we already know about signs and things that we want to find out. The preschoolers have done a great job of noticing where signs are and asking different questions about them. See how many different signs you can see while driving to school or to the store!
Our small groups this week focused on comparing, making shapes, and predicting. The students had the opportunity to compare small quantities of objects using ice cube trays, use geoboards and rubber bands to create shapes and lines, and use their scientific inquiry skills to predict how many pom poms were in each scoop that they took.
Our social emotional curriculum focused on following directions. We talked about how the students could use self-talk to remind themselves about what the directions are or who they could ask if they forget. We also talked about how adults feel when they follow directions the first time. This is a skill that we practice numerous times every single day in preschool! You can practice at home by reminding your child to use self-talk after you give a direction and talking about how you feel when they complete the task.
Don’t forget! Our first family socialization will occur on October 5 from 5:30-6:30 at Fun Night! You can register and pre-pay at: https://kloefkornpto.org/fun-night/
