What do Xylophones, shovels, and scissors have in common? Well they are all implements that preschoolers got to handle last week.
In music class students got to play xylophones and practiced keeping a beat. It was fun to try our hand at the instruments that we see the Older Kids playing at group sing.
In science class, students planted tulips in the preschool garden. They got to choose either a red, yellow, or white tulip, dig the hole, and then plant the bulb. Now all they have to do is wait until spring to see what the bulbs bring.
The preschoolers worked on scissor cutting skills for a fall tree project. Students worked on using both hands at the same time- one cutting with the scissors while the other hand feeds the paper strips through the blades of the scissors.
Lastly, we wrapped up our school-wide Ocean unit with a journal writing and illustration.
This week the preschoolers will start learning about Mesopotamia and all their wonderful inventions. We will explore how ancient people did daily chores, went to school, and what they ate. We will also begin literacy assessments and preparing for academic “workjobs”.
Thank you for letting us be a part of your child’s education.
