Preschool Newsletter

Ms. Becky’s Classes/strong>

We are 6 weeks into the school year and the students are beginning to adjust to the routine and expectations of 2-Day Preschool.  We continue to work on following directions and independence.

We began our letters of the week in September.  Our letters were Aa, Bb, and Cc.  We learned about animals and apples.   For letter Bb our theme was “Bears in Books.”  We made a list of what we thought Goldilocks did after she left the 3 Bears House.  Mixing colors was one of our fun activities for Letter Cc.  We also celebrated our favorite Big Red Dog, Clifford.

Our letters in October will be Dd, Ee, Ff and Gg.  We will be having fun with Dinosaurs and doing some “eggsperiments.”  Farm Fun and Fire Safety will be part of letter Ff and ghouls and goblins will help us identify what’s real and what’s make-believe.    Halloween Fun will also be a part of our month’s activities.

Going to the Library is becoming one of our favorite things to do.  Ms. Twyla came to read to us and in October will be bringing her red wagon for us to check out her special books.

It has been a great start and we are continuing to work on independent care for ourselves.  Please work on this at home as well.

Happy Birthday to Sydney Kiefer!    Congratulations to Jewell Deddens who is a big brother to baby Silas!

Happy Fall!  We’ve had a great start to the school year.  The children are learning the routine and enjoying getting to know their classmates.  They are taking pride in doing things themselves and helping others.

In September, we focused on the letters A, B and C.  Some of our activities included apple tasting and graphing, painting apples, enjoying apple rhymes and songs, acting like different animals in Music, making fall trees, acting out Brown Bear Brown Bear, painting butterflies using a brayer, painting puffy clouds and celebrating Clifford the Big Red Dog.

We will be going to the Library on Thursdays.  The children are very excited!  Jo Ho the Storyteller will be visiting us in October.

Thanks to all of the parents who helped spread mulch on our playground.  It looks great and is safe for our kiddos.  Also, thank you for bringing fresh fruit on Thursdays.

In October, we will focus on the letters D, E, F and G.  We will talk about the new season and do some fun Halloween activities.  We will do some science experiments and learn about dinosaurs.

Thanks you for sharing your children with me.  I am so blessed to spend every Tuesday and Thursday with them.  They are full of energy and love learning!  Enjoy this cooler weather J
