Weekly Update 10/29-11/2 Activities: We had so much fun celebrating all things Halloween!! We carved a pumpkin and took turns scooping out the insides. We talked about the parts of a pumpkin and pointed out the skin, stem, ribs, pulp, seeds, and fibrous strands. We named and chose various shapes for the face of our pumpkin-triangle, square, heart, and a ‘silly’ mouth, then the pumpkin was carved into a Jack O’Lantern

Weekly Update 10/15-10/19 Activities: This week we were so lucky to be visited by Mrs. Pritchard, our technology specialist, better known to the preschoolers as our resident SFX ‘Robot Lady!’ She introduced us to the Bee-Bot robots.

All About Friends

This week we learned all about our classmates by taking turns standing in front of the group and sharing from our All About Me homework questionnaires. We learned about each others’ favorite colors, songs, desserts,  places to visit, animals, subjects in school (seems play-doh is a big hit!), and what we’d like to learn this school year. We’ll need to add ice cream and cake baking to the curriculum! 🙂  We hung up our

All of this is helping to build our fine-motor skills. We read stories at circle time such as I
