Thank you for meeting with us during parent-teacher conferences.  The kids have grown so much and we enjoy learning and growing with the,.  Since this was a short week, we reviewed our letters A-J and worked on 3 step projects involving the Artic and the type of animals that live there, particularly polar bears.  We had a lot of coloring, cutting and gluing.  The kids are always wanting to use the scissors so we added a cutting station to our centers.

Next week we will talk about the letter K and work on counting, with an emphasis on numbers being more or less then another number.  We also plan on doing some baking with everyone helping to mix and prepare the brownies.  

Blessings to you,

Mrs. DeDad and Mrs. Terrill

Week of 1-14-2019
Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedules to meet for conferences with us. It was so nice to get a chance to talk with you all! We are so proud of these kiddos and the growth they have had so far. 

This week we talked about the Arctic and the different animals that live there.  We talked about how the animals survive in the bitter cold and did an experiment with shortening to show the kids how the animals blubber helps keep them warm. We learned about polar bears, snowy owls and walrus'.  We introduced the letter L and Lizzy the lizard is now in our ABC binder.

Week of 1-21-2019
We will talk about Antarctica and compare it to the Arctic.  Penguins, blue whales and seals will be our focus.  Our letter of the week will be M for mouse, and our number will be 13. 
 
1-21-2019 - NO SCHOOL 

Have a safe and warm weekend!
Blessings,

News from Preschool C

This week:

We continued to review our letters and added number 7 to our Journal.  We also learned all about bears and hibernation, as well as, some other animals that spend the winter sleeping. The students did fantastic with an emergent reader and had fun with creating a den and molding their own bear to hibernate for the winter. 
We practiced a great deal of patterning and the students are getting better and better at this skill. 
In science, magnetic slime was a hit (Look for the video on DOJO)!

Next week:
Our letter of the week is L and we will continue learning about migration, adaptation and hibernation.
