Dear Preschool Families,
We had a lot of groundhog activities this week in preschool. We learned that groundhogs are furry, they eat plants and seeds and they are also called woodchucks. We learned that they make a whistling sound when they are in danger. We also found out we are going to have six more weeks of winter.
We also worked on letter Nn. We learned how to print it and played a game called "in the news." We picked a picture and if it began with our sound, we put it in the newspaper. We also sorted uppercase and lowercase "noodles" and put them in the right noodle box. Big Bears have been working with wipe off markers and boards on their letter of the week and their names. We are trying to make our names with the first letter uppercase and all the rest are lowercase.
This week in Religion we talked about God's world and all of the beautiful things in the world that He has given us.
For Math we worked on number 8. I just realized that we missed number 7, so we may be a little out of order. We also had 100 Day activities. We jumped up and down for 100 seconds and took a cat nap for 100 seconds. We made crowns and read some 100 day stories. We also, as a class, put 100 stickers in a big paper gumball machine. (Actually, there were a lot more than 100). We got a little carried away.
For our art projects we made a Ninja N, a heart paper with dabbers, and a Valentine owl.
The afternoon class met with their buddies two times this week for partner reading and a trivia game. We also went to the carnival on Friday for some fun games.
It was a great Catholic Schools Week and I really enjoyed seeing everyone last Sunday at Open House. We truly love coming to school every day and being with your awesome kids. I tell everyone that I have the best job in the world.
If anyone wants more "kindness hearts," please send me a quick note. The kids seem to really enjoy doing kind things and getting the recognition at school too. Our wall is becoming filled with kindness hearts.
Next week on Wednesday, February 14, we will have a small party in our classroom. Children can bring in a wrapped treat and a valentine for each child in the class. Morning class has 31 and Afternoon class has 18. It is also Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent.
Have a great Superbowl weekend!!!
