As all of our families are now aware, Pre-K will be able to continue in class learning over the next two weeks. I have checked in with each family and it looks like we will have pretty much regular attendance from all of our students 🙂
Rest assured, that our regular COVID protocols like classroom cleaning and hand washing will continue. One bonus is that Pre-K will be allowed to use the gym during those days and I am looking forward to breaking out some gym games that we haven’t tried yet this year!
Please Note: while the other grades are scheduled to return to school on May 25th, this continues to be a scheduled day off for our Pre-K class. There is NO Pre-K on Tuesday, May 25th. Our class will resume on Thursday, May 27th.
This week our theme has been Bears! We have read stories about bears and even acted out We’re Going on a Bear Hunt! The kids love the movement activities that we do at circle time and they had so much fun pretending to find the bear and run home at the end.
We also made a Brown Bear craft from a paper bag. This craft continues our focus on learning shapes and practicing our fine motor skills for drawing and cutting. The shape we focused on was circle. We cut out a large circle for the face, two medium circles for the ears, and one small circle for the nose.
During the next few weeks we are going to explore a Plants and Gardening theme and an Insects theme. Our students will have the opportunity to plant a seed and watch it grow and I am VERY excited to say that we will be receiving a live Butterfly Kit as part of our in class field trip learning activity. We will get to watch and take care of caterpillars as they go through the stages of becoming butterflies. The kids are going to love it! But shhh, I haven’t told them about this surprise yet.
Thank-you to Sophie’s mom for mention this opportunity to me 🙂
