Week 17

We had a great first week back from winter break! We enjoyed inquiring about community helpers by participating in a classroom discussion, role playing using dramatic play centers, and having firefighters and a firetruck visit our school. We also went to the park, painted,  and checked out books from the library.

There is no school on Monday! Enjoy the long weekend!

We enjoyed our last week together before winter break! This week, we created with our new play dough, played in the gym, did yoga in the classroom, visited the post office to mail a letter to our pen pal, and had a class party! Thank you for a successful first term! Have a nice break, we look forward to another great term when we get back!

This week, we continued to prepare for Musical Showcase. The children were excited to practice their songs with the preschool class. We enjoyed many fun activities this week such as exploring our light table, having a music lesson, playing in the gym, making our own gingerbread play dough. We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow for Musical Showcase!

We had another successful week in Pre-K! We continued inquiring about homes and communities by taking a walk in our community and making observations. This week, we also made a card and video message for our pen pal, creating a weaving project using recycled fabric, doing yoga, keeping rhythm using instruments, and visiting the park with our friends in preschool.

Week 13

We had another great week in Pre-K! We enjoyed celebrating World Hello Day and learning how to say hello in new languages. This week, we also enjoyed painting, yoga, and music. In inquiry, we continued our exploration of houses by beginning to build our own homes using recycled materials. This children decided what their house needed and selected building materials to make each part of their homes.

We had another exciting week this week! Yesterday, we enjoyed Japanese culture day. We learned a dance, participated in a game, watched a show put on by high school students, and enjoyed a cultural snack during this event. We also continued our inquiry by discussing homes around the world. We visited homes in America, Europe, Africa, and Asia using Google Maps and videos. We also created with beads, did classroom yoga, and visited the park!
