Although it was a short week in Preschool 2, we packed in a lot of action! We started our unit on Electricity and how things work by talking about the different types of energy; electric, wind, water, heat and the sun. We sorted items by things that use power and things that do not and we built our own marble runs. We also had a visit from the Fire Department today which was a huge hit. Pictures will be available on the website this afternoon.
We will continue our unit on how things work next week, and discuss electricity as well as wind. Check out our curriculum highlights for next week below:
Math: Making discovery bottles using measuring cups
Science: Building magnetic robots
Small Toys: Robot Carnival
Literacy: Can You Fix It? (learning sight words 'yes' and 'no')
Table for Two: Making windmills and kites
Art: Decorating kites
Circle Time: Making a class robot out of boxes, singing the song '5 Little Robots', playing 'One of these things is not like the other' (comparing, contrasting and attributing characteristics to different items)
IMPORTANT NEWS AND EVENTS:
1. We need empty water bottles as well as cans for upcoming projects. If you happen to either item for recycling we would gladly use them.
2. Our Listening Conferences will begin next week. If you have not yet signed up for a time slot please make sure to sign up ASAP.
3. We will be having a Halloween Parade on Monday, October 31st. Please see the attached flyer for details.
