Update Wk. of 3/2

Hello Parents-

This week in preschool we welcomed March! One of our FAVORITE things to do is March when we sing about our new Month March! The Letter N was one of our most exciting letters this entire year!  We saw a lot of Nickels, Noses, Necks, and Necklaces.  In our small math group we worked on drawing squares I would draw a square and  they would trace it or draw one next to mine. We also worked on drawing parallel lines.
We had to practice repeating the word parallel over and over LOL! Outside we’ve been working on our large motor skills running and kicking a stationary ball and kicking a ball when it’s rolling towards us we  are  ALL LOVING this activity.  Thank you for inquiring about my daughter Avery’s college touring. We are getting close. I’m proud to say she has been excepted to her top three – Michigan State, Ohio State and Purdue.
Now it’s a matter of picking the BEST Fit!
PRESCHOOL ROCKS!~Carrie

This week the children decorated their rainbow letter N with Ms. Ann! They also added, a colored the number 9, and decorated it with number stickers, to their picture dictionary! We have also been working on Identifying the letters in their name and naming people or animals in their family or friends.

Hello everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your snow day this week, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’s the last big snow event 😊 This week in preschool science we talked about our five senses with a scavenger hunt! This theme will probably continue into next week so all of our friends will get to enjoy it. We talked about what parts of our bodies we use for our senses, and everyone did a great job! We also enjoyed making Mardi gras masks in art and learning about accents in music. I hope you all stay warm this weekend!  ~Madeline

This week my friends and I played together after small groups. We sat on the learning rug and identified all the creatures in the animal baskets. There were some tricky ones but with Miss Tiffany’s help we named them all.  I was fortunate to guest host show and tell and learn all about Stella the Dog.~Ms. Brittny

Reminder:

The weather is starting to get colder, so please make sure your child is PROPERLY dressed to play outside, for 20-30 minutes at a time. Please make sure your child is wearing warm pants and long sleeve shirts. In addition, they NEED a hat🎩, gloves/mittens👐 (made for snow, those cloth mittens get wet and cold quickly, especially if your little one likes digging in the snow!), snow jacket, snow pants👖, and snow boots👢 You can also bring a scarf to help block the wind🌬.   Many people choose to leave this winter gear, here at school, from Monday to Friday (or longer), and take it home for the weekend wash or when it needs it!  There is a great store, Once upon a Child –in Canton or Baby, Baby – in Northville, that has inexpensive, but good quality, snow pants/jackets/ & boots…back-up winter gear is always great idea. Finally many parents bring in extra shoes for their child, so they don’t have to clunk around in big snow boots all day.

Have a great weekend!

 Ms. Carrie, Ms. Ann, Ms. Madeline & Ms. Tiffany!

Hello Parents

Hello Parents!

This week in the four year old classroom we learned about the letter N, our environment, and our holiday coming up St. Patrick’s Day. We also celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday! Students learned what sound the letter N makes, words that begin with N, and how to write it. Each day we read a different story by Dr. Seuss and created a fun craft after. In my small group, we created our own rhyming books. Have a great weekend! ~Ashley

Happy March! This week we discussed how our weather changes a lot during the month of March. We read the book: In Like a Lion and Out Like a Lamb. Then we made a lion and lamb craft. The kids did a great job cutting out some of the pieces. They used a fork and spoon to paint the Lions mane and lambs curly fur. We will continue to discuss the weather throughout the month and graph the days.  ~Sarah

This week in Ms. Melissa’s morning groups we started talking about our new science topic, the weather! Our kids made a weather scene out of construction paper, cotton balls and water color paint! They turned out very cute!  ~Melissa

 

Have a Great Weekend!

Love Ms. Ashley, Ms. Melissa, & Ms. Sarah

This week our Afternoon classes…..

Hello Parents!

During our journal time this week we drew a lion and the weather we would see during lion days. We also made our letter puppet N, truffula trees and walked to the library. ~Sarah

We also celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday! Each day we read a different story by Dr. Seuss and created a fun craft after. In the afternoon we focused on whole group instruction where students worked on their fine motor skills by beading pipe cleaners and turning them into truffula trees! Have a great weekend!! ~Ashley

In Ms. Melissa’s afternoon groups we played with cloud doh, used the bingo dabbers and made our very own Truffula Trees!~Ms. Melissa

This week the children decorated a Mardi Gras Mask! What cute designs and disguises the children came up with too. They used multiple mediums like feathers, stickers, jewels, and more to create a great work of art!

Today we learned all about coins through music! We started with a tone poem about ice cream and pennies where the students jumped for the accents i played. Then we learned the classic “See a Penny Pick it Up” poem and the students took turns looking for pennies i had scattered around the classroom. I hope they brought them good luck! Next I showed them a nickel, dime, and quarter, and we learned new rhythms to identify them. That set up the final game where a student covered their eyes in the center of a circle and another student sang when i placed the coins in their hands. The student in the middle had to guess who had the coins. All in all, it was really fun… but that’s just my 2 cents!

Cheers Mr. Justin

This week the littles did a great job with yoga! They looked like little pro’s with some sun salutations, shavasana and they learned a new tree pose stretch this week. We have been working on our breathes and calming our bodies. Finally the best part ever- our freeze dance! 🙂

Namaste.
