Dear Preschool 2 Families,
Our week ending, May 17th…
This month’s color study focus is purple and orange. Students had the opportunity to free paint on the easel. Their designs are showcased in the classroom. Check them out at drop off.
We practiced the skill of one to one correspondence with a caterpillar worksheet. Additionally, we worked on number identification. Students used dot markers to represent each number. This activity went home with your child this week. Ask them to identify the number and count.
Students used scissors to snip. Four images in total. I used a yellow highlighter to outline the dotted line as a clear indicator where they needed to snip. The correct way to hold the scissors was modeled and they were eager to practice and try. Next, we reviewed images in a pattern and talked about what came next. The point was emphasized, patterns repeat. They snipped images that were next in a pattern. This activity went home with your child.
On Friday, we walked up to the main building to see the Pre-K art show. WOW! It was magnificent. Our Pre-K friends worked so hard all year and their art was amazing. Our sweet preschool friends were excellent guests, well behaved and enjoyed listening to their Pre-K tour guides as they discussed the art they created modeled after distinguished artists.
The beautiful weather at the end of this week gave lots of time outside to explore, investigate, and laugh with our friends.
