May is Here…

The month of May came so quickly, and we are still waiting for warm, sunny weather.  We have been learning all about eating good food, like fruits and vegetables.  Our puppet friend, Reggie Rainbow has been great.  He helps us learn all about eating healthy food and how it makes our body stronger.  Thanks to Reggie Rainbow, they have tried many different fruits and vegetables.  They love hearing from Reggie Rainbow.

Bowling at Mercury Lanes was so much fun.  Our great Dearborn Police Officers kept us safe, as we walked across Schaefer to  Mercury Lanes.  All the children had so  much fun.  Our scores ranged from 25 to 77.  WOW… we all had fun bowling!

Remember, our trike-a-thon is on Thursday, May 18, starting at 9:00 am.  Meet outside on the back parking lot, near the playground.  Bring your child’s bike, scooter or trike, and remember to bring their helmet.  You can buy one at any store, including Walmart, Target, ToyR Us, or any sporting goods store,  Helmets are very important to wear.  After riding their bikes around the parking lot, we will have a picnic.  Remember to bring food and drinks for your family.

Home Visits will be the week of May 22-25.  We will also be registering new preschool students for the fall 2017 preschool.  If you have a relative, neighbor or friend who has a child that will be four years old by September 1, they can register for preschool. Applications are in the school office.

April is Here and Gone…

April was a really fast month with spring break and the teacher conference we were able to attend in Detroit.  It was a great international conference and we learned many new ideas and met many teachers from all over the world.
You should be attending your school, that your preschooler will attend kindergarten.  Kindergarten round up is a time when you go to your preschoolers elementary school, to learn about kindergarten and the necessary papers you will need to complete.

Our preschoolers are getting ready for kindergarten!

March and Spring is on the Way…

The month of March went by so fast.  We had parent teacher conferences, and were able to share the progress of the children, with the parents.  The preschoolers are busy getting ready for kindergarten.

We had the Critter Guy do a classroom field trip.  He showed us many different animals, such as a giant turtle, a snake, a frog (that felt like jelly), a chinchilla, a lizard and the softest bunny we ever saw.  The students’ had so much fun touching the animals and learning new information.

We even had a snow day in March!

February Fun…

We had so much fun on our field trip to the Health Exploration Center, located in Canton.  The students’ learned about the body.  They  saw a skeleton and had fun playing in the fun play area, while exploring how  the different parts of the body sound and look.  The bus ride is always a fun adventure for all of us!

Valentine’s Day was so fun.  The children wrote their names on Valentine cards, and passed them out to their friends.  They made a treasure box, which turned out so fancy and unique.  They were so excited to be able to put their treasures inside.  Some “treasures” included candy, toys, dinosaurs, jewelry, hair accessories and money.

Everyone is  doing a great job on writing their first and last name.  The students’ are working hard and getting ready for kindergarten.

It sounds like everyone enjoyed the break in February too.

It is January… Happy New Year 2017

It is hard to believe that it is 2017!  With the start of the new year, we wish all of you a year of good health and prosperity.  We hope everyone enjoyed the break, and time with family and friends.

January is the halfway point of the school year.  Please remember to work with your children at home to prepare them for the next level of learning.  The children are learning so much.  We have been learning about shapes.  We walked in the halls on a treasure hunt looking for circles and triangles.  The children made tally marks for each shape they found.  We found so many shapes and they had so much fun!

Our parent meeting was a huge success!  So many parents had fun with their children, playing math games and learning at the same time.

The children are so excited to go on the bus field trip on Wednesday, February 1st.  They will learn all about the human body and get to explore many things.  The center is located in Canton, and is only a 30 minute bus ride.

Tuesday, February 14, is Valentine’s Day and we are planning to have a fun day!  The children can wear pink, red, purple or their favorite color.

December…

It is hard to believe that December is here and the end of 2016 is almost here.  Soon, we will be saying Happy New Year!

We have been busy making some special family projects and having some literacy special events.  We visited the Henry Ford Centennial Library and had a great field trip with parents too.

Our parent meeting was a huge success, as we talked about literacy and technology.  We shared some exciting websites which promote learning for preschoolers.  We love using our promethean board and the children love it too.  Our winter theme parent fair,  will be another successful event, as we are all able to participate in many fun learning activities.  Will we have a special visitor?  Hope to see everyone at the Parent Fair on Thursday.

November News…

November was a busy month.  We talked about our families, and drew the best pictures and told stories about our families. We learned about being thankful, and the many reasons we should all be thankful at this time of the year.

Our journal stories were full of details and the stories were interesting to read.  We learned all about turkeys, and then we traced our hands to make a colorful turkey.

We had our first picture day in preschool…SMILES, SMILES AND MORE SMILES.  The pictures turned out so cute!

October Fun!

We had so much fun while learning all about fall time.  We walked and collected leaves  and learned new things about them.  We decorated our pumpkins, and made so many different looking pumpkins.  Our pumpkins were  silly, scary, funny, monsters, babies, and princesses too.  We looked at a real pumpkin and learned all about it.  When we carved out the inside, we could look and feel the inside and all the pumpkin seeds.  Our pumpkin had a happy face today!
