Though it was quite warm, we had a great first full week in Preschool!
On Monday, our students in the morning attended Gym with Mr. Schroeder and on Thursday, our morning students had Art with Mrs. Newman. Also on Thursday, our morning and afternoon students attended Computer class with Mrs. Maxwell.
For Religion this week, we talked about how Jesus always welcomes the children. We learned the bible story, "Let the Children Come." Jesus' friends said that Jesus was too busy but Jesus said, "No, let the children come to me." Jesus is never to busy for us.
For Math this week, we have been reviewing our colors. The little Bears played a crayon game. I named a color and they had to find it and pick it up. The Big Bears sorted by colors using different color dinosaurs.
Our Science experiment was a spectacular "baking soda/vinegar/food coloring concoction." We counted to 3 and then put our spoons in the solution. What happened next was bubbling, sizzling and color changing and a lot of oohs and aahhs and clapping.
Our Art projects were painting a rainbow fish and adding sparkly scales and Pete the Cat. Everyone picked which color shoes they wanted their Pete to have.
We read many stories about Pete, Rainbow Fish and first day of school stories.
We are continuing to work on routines; hanging up back packs, putting folders away, morning work, sitting on the carpet and listening to a story, lining up, and staying in line. Again, all so basic, but not always easy for little ones.
I hope everyone has a great three day weekend. I am going to the Sox Game on Monday, hoping for some good luck and a win! Happy Labor Day and see everyone back on Tuesday!!
