Hello Preschool Families!!  

    We hope that you enjoying your weekend. We had lots of fun this week.

A Week in Review:

  •  We did our Design Challenge and we helped Mr. McToad get home faster. This design challenge was based on the book, Mr. McToad Mows Tiny Island. We had many ideas for him to get home faster like speed boats, hot air balloons, and hybrid vehicles like airplane-boats.
  •  We talked about the number nineteen, 19. How do we write 19? Can we find 19 objects?
  • We reviewed Circles and Squares. We looked for them in our classroom and on the playground
  • We worked closely with the letters Ll, Ff, Ee and Hh. We practiced writing these letters with dry erase markers.
  • Our sight-word this week was it.  We wrote it with pencil and crayons. We also found it in our Transportation books.

What to Expect:

  • Letters: Tt, Ii, Uu, Cc
  • The number: Twenty, 20
  • The shape: Triangles
  • Sight word: my
