October is Almost Over in Pre-K 2!
Good afternoon Pre-K 2 families,
We had a wonderful week in Pre-K 2! We enjoyed a visit from Connor’s dad, Firefighter Tim. He showed all of his gear and talked about safety and how to call 911 for help. He brought everyone a hat and a badge. Thank you for coming to visit our class Firefighter Tim!
Thank you to Ms. Pascal for filling in for Mrs. Daday this week. The children were very helpful with showing Ms. Pascal their daily routine. I had a great time with the class on Thursday! We are excited for Mrs. Daday to return Monday.
SHOW AND TELL: Our first monthly Show and Tell will be on Wednesday, November 2nd. Please have your child find a PROBLEM at home. They can bring in an item or a picture of the PROBLEM. The children will practice their oral language skills by describing the problem and telling their peers if they were able to come up with a SOLUTION.
This week at MORNING MEETING:
The week went a little different but we had still had great morning meetings.
We had several questions of the day. They were Do you like Broccoli? Do you like Pizza? And do you have a pumpkin at your house?
