Dear Preschool Families,
We had a great week in Preschool. Besides being Valentines week we worked on some other fun things while learning at the same time.
Our Art projects consisted of decorating our Valentine paper bag for our treats and cards. We also learned about two great Presidents, Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. We learned that Abraham Lincoln liked to read books and that George Washington loved animals.
We learned about letter Q and how Q and U are best buddies and they are always together. We learned the sound, sign and formation of Qq. We played a fun game called, "flip the Qq" and tallied how many we had of of each. We read about quilts and I brought in my two very old quilts and we sat on them for story time and then had our snack on them too.
For Religion we continued talking about kindness while we also read paper our hearts that keep coming in daily. We read a story called, "The Kindness Quilt," and we colored big poster boards as a group and made them into quilts and they are hung in our hall with hearts all around it.
For Math we continued our work with pennies and had a little store where items were marked from 2 cents to 10 cents. The students had to come up and count out the correct money. Everyone did fantastic!
On Thursday we had our Valentine Party. We sat in a circle and passed out our treats and cards. We played "hot potato," only with a heart, pin the lips on Mrs. Healy and Ms Power and bean bag toss into boxes with hearts on them. In the afternoon our prayer buddies came down and we sorted candy hearts. Both classes had so much fun.
Have a great rest of our three day weekend. See everyone Tuesday.
