The students are finally starting to settle into their routines, most of them have stopped crying at drop off, and the questions about when school will be over have gotten fewer and fewer. We have completed their beginning of year assessments and are very excited to share with you what we have learned at parent teacher conferences in November. We will use the test results to set goals for your children, so please come to your conference prepared to discuss what you want most for your child to learn from pre- school.
October was a month full of fall fun and activities some of the fun things we have done in class are:
Blowing bubbles with straws in trays of water
Making cookies and playing “Who took the cookie from the cookie jar?”
Painting our names with clothes pins and cotton balls
Starting to write in our writing journals
Ice Skating on blocks
