This week we focused on what happens inside buildings. The students got to predict what they thought happened inside buildings based on pictures and practiced using buildings signs as clues. We had two special visitors come to our classroom this week! Our new custodian, Mr Craig, visited and told us all about his house, what it was made of, and who lived inside. The preschoolers had lots of questions about his dog and the pond in his backyard. The other visitor was a retired construction worker who brought tools, wood, and special materials that he used on the job. The students were able to practice using a screw driver, a wrench, a chalk box, and tape measures.
During small groups this week the students got to walk a letter in different ways (walking, hopping, shuffling, etc.), play a memory game using their pictures and name cards, and make a crunchy snack by following a recipe. Letting kids cook with you is a great learning experience! They get exposure to math, reading, and reasoning skills all while making a delicious treat or meal.
Our social emotional curriculum continued to focus on our touching rule. We also practiced how to use our safety steps which are: 1. Say words that mean “no” 2. Get away and 3. Tell a grown-up
