Weekly Update 4/5-4/9

This week we focused on how to reuse recycled materials. We used materials to make instruments and decorated grocery bags for vests! We even had a fashion walk around the school to show off our new looks 🙂

We had a special visitor this week. Ms Shari zoomed with us and read a story! We are all missing Ms Shari, who had shoulder surgery in March, and at this point are not sure when she will return. She is anxious to get back and misses everyone! Some other preschool news, Ms Peggy welcomed a new baby girl, Eliana Margaret, to their family on April 1!

In small groups this week we practiced retelling a familiar story (The Gingerbread Man), making letters in new ways, and experimented with how to make new shapes using magnatiles.

Our social emotional curriculum focused on ways to solve problems. This group of kiddos is great at coming up with solutions to all sorts of problems that might occur. Try to challenge your child at home and see what kind of solutions they can come up with!

Weekly Update 3/29-4/1

This week we talked about how we can recycle materials to make new things. We recycled paper towel tubes to make binoculars and old grocery sacks to make kites!

During small group this week we played a memory game, recycled paper to make books, and sorted through various recycled materials to find the recycling symbol. Do you recycle at your house? Talk to your child about things that you can and cannot recycle. Let them help you sort your recycling into different bins.

Our 2nd step lessons went over how to stay safe at school. We practiced our shelter drill and our evacuation drill and talked about the other drills (lockdown, hold, secure) and what they mean.
