Preschool News Week of December 12-16

What We've Been Learning:

Whole Group Learning:

Books we've been reading:  The Gingerbread Baby and The Jacket I Wear in the Snow.  For these stories, we are focusing on rhyming words, syllables, learning new vocabulary words, concepts of print (where I start reading and the direction that I need to go), and story retelling.

Read it Again: We are reading The Mitten.  Our goals for this week are: To learn some uppercase letter names, including those in own name and those of some friends or family members, to understand and use the words for unfamiliar objects (nouns: mole, hedgehog, and badger), to identify when two words share the same first sound (mole/mitten/mouse, fox/find), and to order three or more major events in a story to include first, then, next and last.  

Small Group Learning:

  • Snowball Math
  • Cooking: Dipped Pretzel Sticks
  • Playdoh
  • Puff ball party
  • RIA: The Mitten story retelling activity.  
  • Jolly Phonics:  Dd

Center Time Learning:

Blocks:  Linking Tubes
Dramatic Play: Bakery
Sensory:  Green sand
Science:  Prisms
Art:  Gifts
Math: Elephant Linking Chains Counting Game 
Writing:  Christmas words
Library: Five Little Monkeys Flannel Board/ Holiday Books 


Thursday, December 22 there will be an early out schedule.  It will be a PJ Day!!
AM Preschool will be in session from 8:15-10:15
PM Preschool will be in session from 11:15-1:00 (PM Class needs to bring a sack lunch please).

Please send shoes for your child to wear in the classroom and boots to wear outside in order to keep our carpets clean and dry.  Please also remember snow pants, boots, warm coats, gloves and hats for these cold winter days.  We will go outside if the feel like temperature is 10 degrees.  If you are in need of any of these items, please send me an email and let me know as there have been donations made to our school.  

Please enjoy pictures of our learning:

Here are pictures of small groups Tuesday.  We made pretzel sticks dipped in almond bark, we did a story retelling activity for The Mitten, and we did playdoh as an independent group.

Thanks for reading and for sharing your children with us!
