Hi Preschool Families,
We had a great first week of Preschool. Here are some of the things that we did!
We began this week with many new routines, both for the teachers and for the students. We learned to come in the building by ourselves, how to make a line and stay in the line, how to take our folders out of our back packs and put our back packs into our lockers. Everyone did such a great job learning all of these new routines.
We learned how to sit on the carpet like a pretzel, how to listen to a story, how to put our hands together to pray and to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance.
We learned that some of us got a job this week and if you didn't, that was okay, because next week, you will get one. We learned to ask if you have to use the bathroom or know to go with the next group, when Mrs. Healy or Ms Starr takes them.
We learned our four basic rules, Sharing, Walking Feet, Hands and Feet to Ourselves and Cleaning Up.
In addition, we learned how to put our names up when we enter the class and we know that we sit down at the tables after that to either do play dough, table toys or shaving cream.
We played a friend game, where we rolled the ball, said our names and our favorite color, we rolled a cube and performed the action on the cube, like jump three times or clap five times, etc. We also looked and talked about some supplies we have in the class like markers and glue and how to put the lids back on when we're done. We mixed yellow and blue play dough to make green and we made a little person that I have hanging up and we also colored a picture of our first day of Preschool. These will be on display for Open House this coming week.
If you haven't received information on the Open House it's because the letters didn't get to me until Thursday after school and I don't see all of the students until Tuesdays. In any event, our Open House is on August 30th where we will begin in Church at 6:30. We will then move into the perspective classrooms by 7:00 for three ten minute presentations by the teachers. I look forward to seeing everyone on August 30th.
I think we had a great first week of Preschool and there will be many more great weeks ahead.
If you need me for anything, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you asap.
THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPLIES AND FOR SENDING YOUR CHILD TO OUR PRESCHOOL. THEY ARE DARLING AND PRECIOUS!
