Yesterday's letter for our alphabet countdown was the letter X. The preschoolers worked in groups to use maps to find the letter X in three spots in the classroom. It was a lot of fun!
Today's letter for our alphabet countdown was the letter W. We did some water painting outside during recess! This is a fun activity that you can do during the summer, as well. Simply fill a bucket with some water and let your preschooler draw with water on the pavement.
Today for our alphabet countdown, we read books underneath objects in the classroom. Preschoolers could choose if they wanted to read under a table, under a blanket, or even under pillows. They could read anywhere in the classroom as long as they were under something. It was a lot of fun!
Today, our letter for the alphabet countdown was the letter T. We made towers! Our preschoolers rotated in small groups to use different types of building materials to try to make different towers. They had to solve problems, think creatively, and work as a group. They made some amazing towers!
Congratulations to all of the students who performed in yesterday's spring concert! Our preschoolers did a great job!
Today, our preschoolers worked with partners to use measuring tools. They used measuring tape and rulers. They love measuring!
Last week, we made cards for our friends who are receiving their First Communion tomorrow. On Friday, we delivered those cards. It was extra special because some of our preschoolers have older siblings or cousins who will be receiving their First Communion tomorrow. They were so excited to give their cards to their big brothers and big sisters! We'll see you tomorrow for our Family Mass where First Communion will be celebrated. Congratulations to everyone who will receive their First Communion tomorrow!
Yesterday, we had a field trip to Brookfield Zoo. We had so much fun! Thankfully, the weather cooperated for most of the day. It was chilly but we didn't have the storms that had been forecasted! And we only had some sprinkles toward the end of our trip.
