Today we had an unusually small number of preschoolers! There were only 7 and I wasn’t the only one who noticed!
The preschoolers started their day at the table by doing a dobber sheet. This morning was a rainbow, many preschoolers noticed that rainbow starts with our letter of the week.
During circle time we read a story called Sweethearts. The preschoolers loved this book and loved telling about who their valentine would be.
Our centers of the day were:
-Creating necklaces using punch out hearts and straw pieces (fine motor)
-Using playdough to create the letter R and to make hearts
-Counting love bugs using tweezers (# recognition, one-one correspondence, fine motor)
-Pouring and scooping water in the sensory tub
-Free play on the carpet
Our project of the day was to create a crazy heart dude. We used glue sticks to put all of the pieces together. We folded our paper like a fan (great fine motor skill) to create the legs and arms!
Our friend Zippy visited during Jesus time. Zippy talked about how sometimes he thinks about things that aren’t so important instead of thinking about what is important. We compared this to our story of Mary and Martha.
We also talked about how even when we don’t think Jesus is with HE IS! We invite Him into our hearts when we pray!
I hope you have a great evening!
