Hello Preschool Families!!   

We hope that you are enjoying the crazy and beautiful weather. Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Moms and Grandmas!

A Week in Review:

·      We released our butterflies into the flowers. We also started talking about the parts of the plant and their life cycle.

·      We talked about the number sixteen, 16. How do we write 16? Can we find 16 objects?  Is there a poem to remember how to write the numbers 16?

·      We talked about trapezoids. How do we draw a trapezoids? How many sides and points does a trapezoids have? We played the game It is or Is not a trapezoid? We looked for things that were in the shape of a trapezoids in our classroom and outside.

·        We worked on all of the letters in the alphabet.  We practiced writing them on white boards and spotting them with bingo dabbers. We also talked about different words that start with each letter.

·      We talked about the color Pink. We looked who was wearing the color pink and where we could find the color, pink, in our classroom and outside. We also sang a song about the color pink.
