Hello, Preschool 2 Families!
The children really enjoyed learning about exercising and why exercising is important. We have been able to freely express ourselves through various active play activities. The children especially like to dance and play tag. With having a mild winter, we were able to move our bodies by running, climbing, balancing on the balance beam, and swinging. When we were inside on colder days, we were able to dance, crawl through a tunnel, hop over blocks, and throw balls.
For the month of February, we will be working on literacy. The children will learn how to find their names, identify the letters of their name, and strengthen fine motor skills by tracing their names. The children will have opportunities to play various literacy games to learn our letters, like alphabet bingo, searching for letters in our books, and finding our names hidden around the classroom.
With it being the month of February, we will also be having a Valentine’s Day party. The children will be encouraged to make a Valentine’s Day box that they will decorate at home to hold all of their Valentine’s Day cards. We would also like to invite our families to our Valentine’s Day party on Friday, February 14th.
As always, we love having guests in the classroom, so if anyone would like to come join us for lunch or even to play with us, you are always welcome.
