Our first few weeks of preschool are getting off to a good start! We have spent some time learning about Sunflowers, and painting with yellow paint… a new experience for some of our green frog friends. This week we learned “All about me and our feelings.” We made a mini "Me", complete with beautiful outfits and colored hair. We also learned about our emotions, since being "Me" includes how we feel. We looked at cards with different feelings, discussed what could have happened to make someone feel that way, and of course we had to make all of our "emotional" faces. Our frog friends are pretty good at this one! We learned about our safe place and ways to use breathing to help calm us down (Conscious Discipline). Ask your child to show you the “Balloon” breathing technique, or the “Tub Drain”, or the “Pretzel” breathing technique. We also read our Fire Safety book about what we are to do if we were to have a fire emergency. We will practice a fire drill soon, and learn how to quickly leave our classroom in case of an emergency.
We had our first music class, and walked down the hallway on our "shape rope", which keeps us safe and all together when we venture outside the classroom. The kids enjoyed Ms. Rebecca!
Next week we will learn about my favorite time of year "Fall"! In our sensory table we will discover leaves and acorns. Our days will consist of leaf paintings, books about the color changing of the leaves, songs about leaves, and just all things Fall!
Snacks next week will be supplied by Mackenzie’s family for Mon/Wed, and Bryson’s family for Tues/ Thursday.
Thanks everyone for making our first few weeks of preschool such a big success! We look forward to spending the rest of our school year with our great Frog Families. We sure love these guys already!
