Dear Preschool Families,
We had a great week in preschool!
This week we worked on Letter Ff. We played some fun games to help us recognize the letter like putting the fish with the letter "F," or "f," on it, in the fish bowl. If it had an old letter that we learned already, it went back into the pail. We also looked at items that began with letter Ff.
For Art this week we worked on a witch and a frog. We also cut out a little ghost and played a guessing game, "Who is under the Ghost?"
In Religion this week we worked on Chapter 3 of our Religion book. We learned that Jesus welcomes the children. We learned that when the children came to see Him, Jesus' friends said that, "Jesus was busy." But Jesus opened His arms and said, "Let the Children Come." We talked about how Jesus always listens to us, no matter what.
For Math this week we read a story, "Ten Timid Ghosts." We arranged ourselves with cut out ghosts with numbers 1-10, in order. The other half of the students had cards with various characters from the book. They had to go up to the ghosts and say, "Boo," as we counted down to zero. Our prayer buddies came down too, and we graphed candy corn and pumpkins. We had some to eat too!
We are so fortunate to have with us, three mornings a week, Kirsten Duffy, from Mother McAuley. Kirsten is a student in their Early Childhood Program and she helps us us with our games, songs and stories. Kirsten also takes a small group of four and works with them on something that is related to what we are working on in class. Kirsten is wonderful with the kids and is a great asset to our program.
