The preschoolers started their day by coloring pictures of zoo animals. I saw many multi-colored animals but some did look like they came right from the zoo!
During circle time, we talked about the zoo. We talked about animals seen there, what you can do there and some of our favorite animals. After that we read a story all about the zoo called “The Zoo Book”. This book showed some great drawings of some of our favorite animals.
During center time, we finished our projects by cutting out the animals, gluing them to a paper plate and then lacing the plate. The lacing was used to create a cage for the animals!
During centers the preschoolers also had the opportunity to create their own enclosures out of blocks and using playdough and popsicle sticks! The preschoolers had fun with this.
We also made some special gifts for mom today for mom’s night!
Such a fun and busy day in preschool!
Have a great evening.
