Pink, purple, and red hearts! The preschoolers are getting ready for Valentine’s Day! For the next scissor cutting project, students will learn to cut hearts from folded paper. We will be making Valentines cards and learning Roses are red, Violets are blue poems. We will also be decorating our Valentine boxes and collecting cards.
This week we’ll be wrapping up our geography unit on South America. Students learned about the Andes Mountains, Amazon River, Angel Falls and the Southern Most Point. The preschoolers have loved learning about the continents unique and diverse features. Take a look at our maps and legends on the bulletin boards!
In the classrooms, students have been working on literacy skills and math concepts and creative reasoning. In music, preschoolers have learned a new song about friendship- Will Be Your Friend, by Guy Davis.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoEDiunazOg and in art they have made bells out of clay. The preschoolers are excited to see what they look like after they are fired in the kiln. We have also started having weekly classroom jobs from collecting lunch tickets to being a class line leader.
Next week we will take a break from our school wide units and learn about and celebrate Chinese New Year on Tuesday and then Valentine’s Day with a party on Thursday.
