Dear Preschool Families,
What a great Catholic Schools Week we had. We began with our Western Round Up. Thank you so much for your donations to the Ronald McDonald House. Afternoon preschool got to see a great Science Show on Tuesday. On Wednesday, we rolled out of bed (my favorite day) and played Bingo with our buddies in the morning. On Thursday we had partner reading in the morning with our buddies. We also talked about spreading kindness. Everyone received 10 hearts and we ask that you write something down on the heart that your child did to show an act of kindness. I'll be displaying them all over the classroom as they come in. We ended our week with an awesome field trip to the United Center. Thank you everyone who came with us, we had a great time.
We didn't have a letter this week. We did some reviewing. We played the missing letter game using magnetic letters. We read some fun groundhog stories and some Valentine stories too.
Our Science experiment was the melting snowman. The snowman was made out of baking soda, complete with hat, eyes, nose, scarf and arms. I slowly poured vinegar on him and he melted before our eyes.
We painted hearts and made groundhogs. We took a poll on whether the groundhog would see his shadow and unfortunately he did and we will have six more weeks of winter!!
For Math, we worked on number 8 and reviewed numbers we have learned so far. We played a game where we all received a magnet with a specific number of items on it. They had to bring it up and put it under the correct number.
This week in Religion we talked about families.
REMINDERS: A letter will go home this week about our upcoming Valentines Day Party. The children can bring in Valentines to pass out and a wrapped treat. There are 26 friends in the morning class and 19 in the afternoon class. I'll be asking our Room Moms for help in the treat and juice box department. Other than that, we will just have a small party in the classroom.
Have a great rest of the weekend and enjoy the Superbowl!
