This was a busy and fun week in Preschool A! We started our focus on family this week with family portraits and dictating stories about our families. Look for our portraits and stories displayed outside the classroom next week. We have had some delightful conversation about what makes a family and about how all families look different. Some of us have baby brothers or sisters at home (or on the way), so we learned a fun song about putting baby to sleep. It has been a great hit!
We also welcomed the new season of Fall with a walk to look for signs of the season. We will take a walk over the next few Mondays to see how things are changing. The children have already made some insightful observations about the changes. Apples are also part of our look at the season, and we will be doing a variety of activities with apples that we are bringing from home next week.
The children are already becoming great problem solvers with lots of practice, support and encouragement to work things out on their own. It is delightful to see the pride and joy when they figure something out on their own! This will continue to be a significant part of our preschool curriculum.
