It was such a busy week in Preschool 1, even with our shorter week last week, we learned a lot in just three days. We worked on forming the letter L and discussed words that begin with L. In continuing with our winter/snow theme, we played in shaving cream “snow”, made snowkids (in various shapes and sizes) with white paint and a toilet paper roll, and made homemade play-doh. By adding glitter it gave the play-doh that “snow” look! The children enjoyed our science lesson, and were so excited as they watched flour, water, and oil turn into play-doh! We read winter and snow related books and played games that related to our stories. Our class also played “colors and shapes” Bingo for the first time. I was thrilled at how excited the children were to play this game! They did an amazing job listening to the directions and had so much fun. On Thursday morning, the children enjoyed music class with Mr. Williams. (Mr. Williams is the music teacher at RMAE, and on Thursdays he comes to the preschool to work with our children). Music is such a great time. Class is very interactive as the children are learning movement words such as: slow, fast, jump up and down, turn around, etc. The children especially enjoy dancing to the beat. You all will get to hear the songs they are learning when we have our end of the year program. The warmer weather has allowed us to stay outside for a longer recess! Recess is a favorite time of the day for everyone! Remember to send snow pants, snow boots, winter coats, waterproof mittens, and a hat to help keep your child dry and warm. We go outside every day! Our playground is covered mostly by shade in the winter, so it stays cool and snow covered until spring. You can also send a pair of slippers that your child can change into, and a couple of extra pair of socks!
Remember to stop by for our OPEN HOUSE this Thursday, January 26th from 3-4:30pm.
