Acting out the butterfly life cycle!
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
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)!

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.
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!
Fine motor, letter & number recognition and more!
We put a fun twist on reviewing our letters and sounds today during small groups. Children took turns finding and matching the lowercase alphabet cookies with the corresponding uppercase plate while practicing the sounds together.
