MAY we ask you where this month went? Goodness gracious the time is flying! Speaking of flies, (wink wink) our Lower Preschool students had an exciting time reading, creating, and singing about our Spring insect friends. They cut leaves and added spots on their very own The Grouchy Ladybug. The classes counted ladybugs and their corresponding spots. They created caterpillar paintings from paper rolls and enjoyed books such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar and The Caterpillar who Roared. Their tiny fingers stacked beads on pipe cleaners for inchworms and listened about the travails of a clever inchworm in Inch by Inch. Some of our Lower Preschool students spun a delicate spiders web of yarn and learned about the day in the life of The Very Busy Spider.
Children continue to hone their safe cutting skills by cutting straws, pipe cleaners, play dough seeds into a flower pot and stems of flowers. The letters of the alphabet and especially letters of one’s name are constantly reinforced through various work play activities such as ABC tiles and alphabet duck matching game.
P. Mooney is still paying visits to our class and has introduced us to a friend of his named Zoe. She is particularly fond of hats and is often spotted wearing her Discovery Hat, Thinking Hat or Action Hat. The children were happy to see that she has eyes but NO mustache!
Favorite past times are still incredible in the eyes of our preschoolers. Play dough, shaving cream, dress up and kitchen are enjoyed. The sensory table is filled with water or sometimes rice with treasures!
We were fortunate to start the month of May with our Spring Fling Celebration and end with Playground Day. What fun! Also, what an amazing job our Room Moms, Jessica McKittrick and Kristin Prachar did all year long. Thank you!
We are looking forward to seeing you on our last day, this Thursday, June 8th at 10:45 for our ice cream party!!
