We had a lot of fun at preschool during our short week at school! The students discovered that we brought out a firefighter prop box and they enjoyed putting out fires around the classroom. We also had a visit from the fire truck! The preschoolers had the opportunity to examine the truck, see the ladder, hose, hear the sirens, and see what the firefighters look like when they are in their pants, jackets, and helmets. We talked about how they might look scary but they are there to help you and it is never safe to hide from a firefighter. The firefighters also talked about how important it is to have a family safety plan in case of an emergency at home. What’s yours?
During small groups this week the students were able to practice their tape skills, predict if they could blow certain objects across the table, and measure and compare block structures. Our social emotional curriculum focused on feelings and how to identify when someone is feeling a certain way. We practiced labeling our own feelings and looking at friends faces to identify how they are feeling. This is an easy “game” to practice at home! See if your child can identify how you’re feeling based on your facial expression/body language or if you can identify how they are feeling.
During our second round home visit you will be making a family sign! This sign can include family pictures, 3-d items, quotes, mottos, etc. I will be bringing out the paper and some materials to complete this sign and you and your child will do the rest! These signs will be brought to school to be hung up in the hallway and returned at a later date.
