The children have been learning a lot about what makes up a letter…straight lines, curved lines or both. Here are a few pictures of them using the different types of lines to build letters.
This past week the children were introduced to the water table. This is where they washed their pumpkins!! They also used unifix cubes and chains to measure the height of their pumpkins as well as the circumference. Lastly, we explored the inside of our pumpkins!!

This week the children worked on building their fine motor skills by doing different activities such as cutting and tearing pieces of paper to make art! Activities such as these are easy to do at home and will help your child build their hand muscles which in turn will help them later with holding a pencil and writing!
We also went on a nature walk around the neighborhood!
This week were were very busy !!! The firefighters came and visited the classroom. They talked to the children about fire safety as well as showed them all the parts of a fire truck. As a follow up to this activity, please talk to your children about fire safety, 911, and stop drop and roll. Also, please check all your smoke detectors to make sure they are working properly. Lastly, make a plan with your family on where to meet outside of the home in case of a fire.
Because of the rainy weather, the children were able to experience going to the gym rather than outside!
The children were also introduced to the playdoh this week! Playdoh is a great way to help build your child’s hand muscles which in turn will benefit them later in writing and many other areas.
Lastly, the children started Daily 5. This is a part of our daily routine where the children are being introduced to a variety of ways to read. They were each given a reading bag containing two books. These bags should be brought back to school everyday.

As this last week approaches us I just wanted to give you a few reminders….
- Monday, June 10th at 12:30 is our end of the year party. It is a regular day of school for your child. However, at 12:30 you can bring a non-motorized bike or scooter along with a helmet to school for your child to ride. Please check the weather, if it is raining at that time, we will not do the bikes and just meet in the classroom for a picnic. Lastly, if you would like to, please bring a dish to pass and a drink for both yourself and your child.
- Tuesday, June 11th is a half day 11:45 dismissal and your child’s last day of preschool
