GET READY! END OF YEAR PROGRAM! May 16 5:30-6:30 pm

Please put May 16 in your calendars! We will be celebrating our preschool year and sending some of our friends off to Kindergarten. This is a celebration for our ENTIRE class! We have started practicing our songs that we will be singing and the kids are getting excited. We will meet in the hallway that leads to the cafeteria, parents will take a seat and enjoy the show! The show is in the Adams Cafeteria from 5:30 pm – 6:30 p.m. See you there!

Insects!

We have started a new Insect Study that we will work on until the end of the school year. The students have already gained so much knowledge on the characteristics of insects. They know insects have six legs, three body parts and sometimes have wings. They also have learned about how insects use their proboscis (tubular mouthpart used for eating) and mandible (mouth parts that pinch together.)

VALENTINE’S DAY PARTY

Our class Valentine’s Day party will be held next Wednesday from 1:00 – 2:00. Parents are welcome to join if they have filled out the volunteer forms with LPS and have been cleared to be in the classroom. 

The district is asking that we refrain from bringing edible treats this year. You may send small items like erasers, pencils, stickers, or just cards. Thank you for your understanding.

 

Clothes Study

Welcome back Adams Preschoolers! We are excited to see all of you at school today! For the next quarter, we will be studying clothes. We will learn what kinds of clothes people wear, how they are made, and where we get clothes. Tomorrow, Tuesday the 9th, I would like your child to wear a piece of clothing that is special to them. It could be a shirt they love, a dress or even fun socks. We will be discussing what makes these items special to us. 

Trees!

For the last few weeks, we have been learning all about trees! We have learned the parts of trees, what grows on trees, and who lives in trees. We learned that a deciduous tree loses its leaves and an evergreen stays green all year long. Next week we will learn about arborist and how they keep trees healthy. If any of our families knows an expert on trees, please contact me! We would love to have a visitor to our class. Today we made applesauce because we know that apples grow on trees!

Fire Engine Visit

Our class has been learning some very important safety lessons the past few weeks. We learned how to ask for help when we are lost, street safety, car safety, gun safety and fire safety.  We had a visit from Engine 6 to show us what the firefighters do in a fire to keep us safe. We got to see the fire engine and even spray the hose! Click the link below to see all the photos.
