This year has gone by so quickly! Check out this picture from the first day of school.
And then look at this picture from graduation day!
It's been really hot this week! A great activity to do with your preschooler, to help cool down, is water painting. With a bucket of water and some paintbrushes, your preschooler can cool down while practicing writing his name, drawing pictures, and just exploring water. When it's really hot out, the water doesn't last long. This can lead to some interesting conversations about evaporation and the water cycle.
Due to the expected heat tomorrow (Tuesday, May 28th), all students can wear their gym uniforms even if they don't have gym class tomorrow. Please send your preschoolers (and any siblings at Epiphany) to school in their gym uniforms tomorrow. And think cool thoughts!
We are already on U for our Alphabet Countdown! Today, we read books under tables and under blankets. It's always fun to find new ways to read!
Today's alphabet countdown letter is the letter T. T is for Tower! We divided into smaller groups and attempted to make towers using different building materials. It was a lot of fun and required some very interesting problem solving!
Yesterday afternoon was Epiphany's spring concert. I was so glad to see so many family members in the audience! Our preschoolers did a great job!
On Tuesday, we practiced using measuring tools (rulers, measuring tapes, yard sticks) to measure things in the classroom. We've been practicing starting our measurement at the end of the measuring tool, by the side that has the "1".
