Notes from the Preschool Teacher: 
The first week of school was great. We got to know all about our classroom and learned routines.  Everything we are working on is preparing them for kindergarten and they are very excited about that! Our theme was "If You Take a Mouse to School"  (its the same mouse from If You Give a Mouse a Cookie)  the students made a mouse and thought about what would happen if they took a mouse to school.  Some of the answers are pretty funny!   Week 2 - Our theme was "All About Me" Everyone got to vote about characteristics they had, talk about things that described them, and how God made us all different.  We read 2 books, "Spoon" and "I Feel Silly and Other Moods That Make My Day."  The activity "I am as..." was a great way for me to see what they understood about themselves and if they comprehended what those words meant.  I got some pretty funny answers!! Everyone loved using the magnifying classes to look at their finger prints. Foxes started working on the number 1, what it may look like, and how to write it. Bears spent this week working hard in the cutting station and improving that skill.  They will start with numbers next week Raccoons worked on classroom routines, had guided discovery of new supplies they can use, and the parachute.

This week was all about apples and the kids had a blast with our Apple Orchard in the classroom.  They were able to shop in a Country Store and purchase candy apples, applesauce, apple pies and assorted apples.  I had apple picking from the trees, apple counting and sorting, make a pretend apple crisp with oatmeal and apples in the sensory bin, and many other small activities for your child to partake in. Foxes made their first book about apples in class today.  They really loved reading their book together in class. Bears have been working on letter recognition and will also make an apple book today.  Its important to read with your children daily and having a book they made makes it very personal and fun! Raccoons really enjoyed the finger painting of the apple trees that we have in the hallway of the Preschool.  They are learning more routines daily and engaging with more classroom tools.  Their favorite station was the apple crisp bin!! What an amazing week we had learning about farms and what we can find on a farm.  We read a book called Barn Yard Hoolabaloo and used barn yard animal finger puppets to tell the story. We talked about what we find on a farm during our meetings and what importance each one has on a farm.  The students thought it was pretty cool that a farm dog can go get help if a farmer was hurt!  All the students made cows and you can see them lining the hallway at school this week!! Foxes: Continued working on fine motor with tracing and number recognition.  They made a book about what if they had a farm what they would grow and what their favorite farm animal is. Bears: Did a great job cutting out their cow pieces and putting the cow all together.  They also made the book about a farm and what they like about it. Raccoons:  They really loved making the cow!  Mrs. Angie and I helped cut out  pieces for them and they got to create their own cow.  We also learned that glue is not for coloring with :)
