Dear Preschool Families,
Thank you for your Service to all Veterans!
This Week in Preschool we continued on with letter Ff. I was able to finish up my assessments with the help of Ms Starr. We can now move forward with our new letter Gg this week. We did however, do some reviewing by playing some letter recognition games for all of our old letters. We read many stories about friends, fish and frogs and many books about Thanksgiving.
We have been learning about Pilgrims and Native Americans. We learned that the Pilgrims traveled by boat to come to America. We learned that the boat was "The Mayflower," and that they landed on "Plymouth Rock." We also have been learning that the Pilgrims and the Native Americans taught each other how to hunt and cook and that they had a big feast together which was "The First Thanksgiving."
For Religion we learned that God gave us the gift of friends and that we need to share, help and be kind to our friends.
We did not have an experiment this week for Science but we did look at different kinds of leaves with our Scholastic Magazine.
On Friday we talked about what a Veteran is and how even though we are little, if we know someone, we can say, "Thank you for Your Service." We made a star wreath and marched around the room to "Your a Grand Old Flag," with our flags.
This Week for Art we made Pilgrims/ Native Americans and glued feathers on letter F.
