Dear Preschool Parents,
Wow what a super week in Preschool. We had so much fun with all of our Dr. Seuss activities.
We began on Monday with, "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish." We made fish bowls and glued fish in them. We matched red and blue fish together for a quick math game. The students had to match the correct number of dots to the number.
On Tuesday we read, "The Cat in the Hat." We put things in our own Cat in the Hat that began with letter T. We also stacked small red hats to see how high we could get them without them falling down. We made Cat in the Hat masks too.
On Wednesday it was "wacky." We painted using anything but a paintbrush. Some items included spatulas, spoons, cars, Lego's and anything else we could find. We wore silly clothes that were backwards and mismatched. We read the story, "Wacky Wednesday," and noticed some wacky things in our classroom too. There was a new teacher in my chair, wearing my glasses and a crown. It was our own stuffed big brown dog that we have in our class.
On Thursday we talked about the Grinch and the students educated me about all the things about the Grinch that I didn't know. We made some cute Grinch ornaments complete with a heart on the back.
We ended the week on Friday with "Green Eggs and Ham." We had some great munchkin treats, Dr. Seuss stickers and I attempted to make slime which turned out great for the first time.
In addition to all of these fun things, on Tuesday afternoon, SOAR students provided us with a dance and movement activity in the Gym which was so fun. We also received ashes from Father Ken on Ash Wednesday. We talked about continuing to do the kind acts that they have been doing at home in order to be just like Jesus. I was so incredibly proud of the kids when Father Ken came to our class. The kids were so kind and respectful as we called them up to receive their ashes. Thank you for all you do as parents, that's why they are so good for us in school.
For Math we worked on time to the hour. We read, "The Grouchy Ladybug," which involves time. We learned about the "hands" of the clock and that the little hand is the "boss." We also worked on Letter T this week too.
I hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend. Spring is approaching!
