We took a little break from all of our hard work to have a dance party!! The children loved dancing to the Hokey Pokey, If You’re Happy And You Know It, and The Conga!
We measured the children’s heights for “All About Me” week!
The children have been practicing the Pledge of Allegiance during our morning meeting in circle every morning!
We have a lot of Blonde’s in our classroom!
We used mirrors to look at our reflections and made name initial mosaics. In order to complete the mosaics the children had to rip pieces of paper and outline their initials. We also practiced pinching clothes pins and matching the letter on the clothes pins to the letter on the paper. This was great fine motor practice for the children. Then, we traced the outline of the children’s bodies and they tried to draw their faces and their clothes on their bodies!
The first week of Preschool has been fun and exciting!! This week your child has been learning all about themselves and their friends. We have completed many different projects and learning centers that taught the children all about themselves! On Wednesday, the children were able to share their “All About Me” bags with their friends during circle time. They loved it!!
We are very excited about the new school year and we hope that you are too! Make sure to check in here weekly, for updates about what we are learning and doing in our classrooms, as well as for parent reminders for upcoming events!
