This week we talked about what makes balls move and who uses balls. We got to experiment with water and got to go to the gym to practice how to use a variety of balls (basketball, volleyball, soccer ball, etc.).
In our small groups this week students practiced making their name with magnets, used straws to try to blow different balls on the table and carpet, and worked on their recall skills by playing the game What’s Missing? This game is easy to play at home and can be done very quickly. You find 3-5 items, show them to your child, put a blanket on top, take 1-3 items away and see if they can tell you what’s missing! It’s a great way to practice memory and recall skills.
Our social emotional curriculum focused on how to invite friends to play and how to join friends in their play. We talked about how students could give a play idea to a group of friends or ask to join or help them with what they are already playing. We also talked about how to be kind to all friends all of the time in the classroom. Take some time to talk to your child about kind words and actions that they can display in the preschool classroom.
