  • Last Days of October

    We embraced our October theme whole heartedly this month! What’s better than giving academic time a Halloween twist?? Here’s a taste of what we did this month!

    Spider Counting!

    Building letters with pumpkin seeds

    Letter building with candy corn

    Feeding the Alphabet Zombie (he loves his letters!)

    Acting out the Five Little Pumpkins

    Spider swatting and number recognition!

    Wicked letter find and sort! 

    Silly Monster Craft!

  • Prewriting and Fine Motor

    We have been working on our prewriting and fine motor skills in the PM preschool and preschool prep classes! We are getting our hands ready to write!

  • Building Letters

    We are working hard with our letters!  We are learning to recognize them, name them, give their sounds, and build them.

    Before we start learning to write letters it is important for children to really know what a letter looks like, and what kinds of lines it contains.  So for example, uppercase A is made of only straight lines but lowercase a is made of a curved line and a straight line.

    We work hard to learn to build them the correct way, to make the transition to writing them much easier.  Starting at the top and going down is always important!

  • April Part One: Insects and Gardening

    April’s theme in Preschool Prep is based around gardening and insects. We have integrated this theme into our daily curriculum and are having so much fun!

       The Very Hungry Caterpillar story retelling 

    Bug Fossils!

    Each day this month we have done a “Daily News” segment in the classroom 🙂 We first have someone introduce the news, and then we work together to figure out what month and day of the week it is. Next, we choose a student to be our “weather kid” for the day. This person gets to wear a special badge and report the weather based on what they see outside and how it feels! Lastly, we complete a feelings chart where the students pick a face that mimics how they are feeling that day (all of the children have picked the happy face so far)!

  • Alphabet Study

    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.

    We practice building letters using various materials like M&Ms.

  • This Week In Preschool Prep…

    What a fun week in preschool prep! The students were able to explore their sense of touch this week.  We talked about different textures and incorporated sensory experiences into our small groups!
