Welcome to the first day of fall! The 2016-2017 Preschool year has gotten off to a great start. We started with a tour of the new classroom layout and made sure to come up with some classroom rules to help keep everybody safe. We began our first week with an All About Me unit. We were ale to answer a few questions about ourselves and our families with a We Are A Rainbow cutting and pasting activity. We also measured ourselves and are very much looking forward to measuring ourselves again around the holidays. We were able to decorate our birthday wall with beautiful artwork and made new placemats for snack and lunch time.
Our second week focused on all things Apple. We made apple pie scented play dough, took a field trip with Chloe at IIT to explore their apple trees and do some apple print art work. We worked on peeling and cutting apples, tomato applesauce and had an apple taste test to determine which color apple is our favorite.
The rest of the month will focus on Fall. Expect lots of leaf and pumpkin artwork and exploration. Thank you to all of you for working so closely with Ginny and I and being flexible as the year progresses.
As the Preschool Board decided, we will continue 5 days a week from 8:30-3:30 until October 3rd.
Throughout October we will be open Monday -Thursday from 8:30-3:30.
Beginning November 1st, we will be open Monday – Thursday from 8:30-3.
As always, please feel free to come to me with any questions, comments or concerns!
