December Fun

December was such a fun and festive month, as we really got into winter weather.  We learned about the different kinds of clothes we need to wear in the cold winter weather, and learned about the difference between mittens and gloves. We learned about germs too!   We looked on the big map of the United States and found our state of Michigan.  We talked about the shape of Michigan, and that it is shaped like a mitten!

We really had a great turn out for our winter fair, which is held at Cotter.  The families were able to explore and do some fun activities with their children, and had fun too.

November News…

It is hard to believe that November is already here and the cold weather is too!  We have been so busy since starting the year.  We have been learning about fall time, how trees and leaves change, and the beautiful colors, pine cones and acorns.  We went for a walk and collected so many things.  We came back in the room and sorted all of our things- we had so much fun learning.

Picture day went so well and everyone brought their smiles.  We should get our pictures soon.  November is also time for parent teacher conferences.  This is a time we meet together,  by appointment to share your child’s progress.

We had the Critter Guy visit our preschoolers and he brought so many animals.  Ask your child about the snake, the chinchilla, the dove birds (Mr. Dove and Mrs. Dove), the opossum, the tree frog and the lizard with the blue tongue.  It was exciting to see the students explore and learn about these animals.

We had so much fun learning all about turkeys.  We made turkey headbands, with feathers, and made turkey hands in our journal and cards.  We had a fun turkey walk through the red hall, on our way to the office.  We wished everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, with some gobble, gobbles, and even took a picture with Mr. Farhat-our awesome principal!

The preschoolers learned about being thankful, and had fun making their special books to take home.  We hope everyone enjoys the weekend with family and friends.

It’s October Fun…

October was a busy month.  We had so much fun learning about our preschool class.  So many new things!   We had school pictures and celebrated fall harvest time.  WOW…it was a fun month.   Our October parent meeting was a huge success.  We learned about what a typical day in preschool is really like.  The students’ are learning as they play, and their language is increasing too.

We carved a big pumpkin and learned about the pumpkin seeds, the pulp and the orange skin.  Everyone had some good guesses about how many pumpkin seeds we found.   We learned so much about pumpkins.  We decorated our own pumpkins too.  They were silly, scary and funny pumpkins.  We had so much fun at our fall harvest!

Our First Month in Preschool

We started preschool in September, and it is already October.  Our preschoolers are getting into the routine of the day and having fun in school.  They have adjusted so well, and are already learning so many new things and meeting new friends.

Remember, our parent meeting is October 17, and it starts at 9:00 am, parent with preschooler arrive at the same time, 8:55 am.  Our parent meeting will show you what a “Typical Day in Preschool” is all about.  We have been busy with fun projects in the room and are so excited to show you everything.  Be sure to look at the hallway outside our room.  You can see your child learning to write his/her name from September through the end of the school year.  You will be so proud of them!

Our Fall Harvest is on Thursday, October 31, children can wear orange, black or their favorite color.  It will be a fun filled day.

Be sure to check the blog, because we will have pictures on here too.
