We have wrapped up our unit on Rescue Vehicles and will start a new unit on 'Peace' next week. This unit will be based on 'The Peace Book' by Todd Parr. He does a great job describing happiness and peace. For example, Parr writes that "Peace is taking a nap." and "Peace is having enough pizza in the world for everyone". We can't argue with that!! Below are some curriculum highlights:
Dramatic Play: P2 Wellness Center (yoga, painting, listening to music, etc.)
Math: Moons and Stars patterns and exploration
Playdough: Pizza with toppings
Science: Mixing watercolors on coffee filters
Sand Table: Planting a garden
Table for 2: Making a mosaic of the peace dove using old crayons
Literacy: Class book: Peace is....
IMPORTANT REMINDERS AND EVENTS:
1. Please check your child's spare clothing bin and make sure they have spare cold weather clothes (pants and long sleeve shirts). Accidents happen and we want to be sure all of our preschoolers have long pants and sleeved shirts. Thanks!
2. Todd Parr writes in his book that, "Peace is giving shoes to someone who needs them." With that in mind we will be starting a Gear Up For Winter clothing drive next week through Cradles to Crayons. A flyer has been placed in your child's cubby with information regarding specific needs. We will drop off all donations on Friday the 23rd.
3. "Peace is wearing different clothes." Expressing ourselves through what we wear is often a way for many to find inner peace! Next Thursday, December 15th is "Dress and Express Yourself" Day. We are inviting our preschoolers to wear whatever they would like to school that day. Please discourage any wands, weapons or things that may get lost! Thanks!
4. The date for music with Hugh Hanley has changed. He will be coming on Tuesday, December 13th (instead of the 15th) at 11:30am.
The website is updated with recent pics so be sure to check them out. Have a great weekend!
