Have you gone on a shape scavenger hunt at your house? Have you found any circles? Our preschoolers have found many different things in our classroom that are a circle shape. To celebrate the circle, we made circle hats. They look great!
We had a very fun morning full of activities to celebrate Mexican Independence Day. Students had a delicious snack and then we voted to see which flavor of Jarritos was our favorite. It was a tie! They were both delicious!
After our treat, I turned on a video of Ballet Folklorico de Los Angeles. We played instruments while watching the dancing and listening to the mariachi band. It was so much fun! The preschoolers loved playing the instruments and loved watching the beautiful dancing!
On Friday, Epiphany held a special ceremony to honor first responders in remembrance of 9/11. We were very lucky to have some firefighters and some police officers in attendance. After the ceremony, our preschoolers gave some of the officers and firefighters some high fives!
Thank you for all that you do for our community!!
