February Fun in Pre-K 2
Hello Pre K Families,
I hope you all had a great Snow Day Monday! The children loved sharing what they did over the snowy weekend. We managed to squeeze a lot into three days. There were Dinosaurs all around our room this week! Dinosaur books at the book nook, Dinosaurs at the block area, and Dinosaurs to color and create at the art table!
ABOUT VALENTINES DAY IN PRE-K
***** We will be exchanging valentines in our Pre-K classroom on Feb 14h. Please send in 16 Valentines, signed by your child. Please do not send in candy or sweets. You are welcome to send in pencils, stickers or tattoo’s ( some examples). We will be decorating bags at school to collect the cards in. Please do not address the cards, as it makes it easier for your child to hand out if there are no names on the valentines. You can start sending them in anytime next week and PLEASE have them brought in by February 14h!
This is what went on in the centers this week!
Dramatic Play- Dramatic play is a grocery store this month.
Playdough- Purple play dough with empty chocolate boxes to make candy, heart cookie cutters and plastic hearts.
Art Easel- Dot markers.
Discovery Table- The children made their own fossils. We talked about the word ‘extinct”. Our future paleontologists were scraping and dusting a fossil to see what they could find inside.
Art Table- The children could make a Dinosaur D, a frosted donut and work on their Valentines bag.
The Reading Street book this week was Quack Daisey Quack! by Jane Simmons. Daisy and her little brother, Pip, explore their pond surroundings, looking for playmates who aren't afraid to be a little noisy. When Aunt Lily takes them to the feeding pond where all the ducks are quacking, Daisy and Pip think they've found the perfect playground... that is, until they lose sight of Mama Duck and Aunt Lily. Now they really have to be loud -- to be found.
We talked about what to do if you ever become separated from your parents. A few stories were shared about getting separated from parents in different places.
D letter song – Did old Dandy Dog Dig in the Dirt?
