  • Valentine’s Day in Preschool

    We had such a fun day celebrating the ones we love… our families!  From our mini concert to our yummy snack, and even our fun activities, I’d say Valentine’s Day in Preschool was a success!

     

  • Buddy Time

    We took advantage of our smaller groups today and paired each of our KPrep students up with a Preschool Prep student.  The buddies worked together to build big shapes with smaller shapes over in the Kprep room!  The preschool preppers were so excited to come visit the big room and have a big buddy to get to know.  Then we marched over to the preschool prep room with our buddies and the little guys got to share their favorite centers with the older kids.  We had fun with our buddies today!!

    We read the story and then wrote a fun journal response!

    We made our own cute mice to take home!

    To practice some counting skills, we counted cookies up to 8.

    And then we enjoyed our very own cookie and milk snack!

    We have been so busy this month with our alphabet study!  This month we have been working on the letters M, N, and O.  In addition to letter recognition, we are working very hard on learning letter formation and the sound the letter makes.

  • Gingerbread Day!

    Preschoolers got to have a special gingerbread day last week.  We read 2 gingerbread books, decorated a gingerbread picture, and even got to decorate and eat a gingerbread cookie which was everyone’s favorite part.  We graphed what each person bit off first and the majority of students took a bite from his head first!  We had a fun day and really enjoyed our special cookie treat!

  • The Preschool Feast

    In preschool, we have been learning about The First Thanksgiving and what it may have been like for kids their age back then versus what they are like now.  We learned why they had a feast that very first Thanksgiving and we prepared our very own feast to enjoy!  Students practiced using a butter knife to cut strawberries, bananas, and oranges.  We learned to snap the “yucky” ends of the green beans.  Using a lot of arm strength, we made our very own butter by shaking cream… for a long time…  We crushed up graham crackers for our pie crust and we even made our very own bread in a bag.  On Tuesday, we enjoyed the fruits of our labor and got to eat all of the yummy food!

  • We Went on a Bear Hunt!

    We read the story “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury this week and preschool and we had a GREAT time!  When the preschoolers showed up for school they walked into a surprise obstacle course and they were all so excited to see what we were doing!  We read the story and then in order to practice our story retelling skills, we went on our own bear hunt and experienced all the parts of the story while searching for the bear with our binoculars!

    We went through the long swishy grass!
