We started our day by painting a squirrel which would be helpful during center time. The preschoolers were excited to start their day off with painting!
During circle time, we read a story called “The Very Busy Squirrel” and learned about all of the things that a squirrel collects to prepare for winter. We also learned a song called “Gray Squirrel, Gray Squirrel” (with motions)! Ask your child to sing it for you!
The preschoolers were very busy during centers. We had out peg boards (a preschool favorite), a patterning math center, a writing center and the sensory bin. The preschoolers moved from center to center in groups of three. During center time, the preschoolers were called to Mrs. Wolfgram to finish making their squirrel.They did this by tearing cotton balls to create the bushy tail on the squirrel and used a spray bottle to squirt gray paint onto the tail. The preschoolers were also called to me to work on a letter review sheet. We practiced identifying and making the letters! Look for these to come home in your child’s folder.
During Jesus time, we learned the story of Joseph and his brothers. We heard Joseph’s story and how he and his brothers had some happy, sad and mad days. Ask your child to retell Joseph’s story to you!
