This week we talked about different types of tubes and got to explore PVC pipes, water hoses, and rain gutters. We talked about what we noticed about the different types and what was the same and different about them. We introduced the concept of a Venn diagram and filled it out while talking about the similarities and differences.
This week we also had a special visitor! Pat the Cat in the Hat came to visit the preschoolers and read Dr. Seuss books! Each child got to hold a stuffed animal character from a Dr. Seuss book and use them to act out The Foot Book. The students had a great time listening to the stories and interacting with their animals.
Our small groups this week consisted of making bird feeders with tubes, going on a color hunt through Kloefkorn, and using our predicting and counting skills. Our social emotional curriculum focused on reviewing our friendship and problem solving skills. The students had multiple opportunities to practice these skills throughout the week.
If your family is going on a vacation or doing something fun over spring break, bring in a picture or two! I am going to create a preschool travel book so that students can share where they have been and what they did. This will help foster recall, conversation, and public speaking skills. Feel free to bring in or email me pictures from previous trips if you think your child would be able to recall some details about it. It might be helpful to write something on the back of the picture so I can assist if needed when your child is telling their friends.
