It has been quite an eventful and 'witchy' week here in Preschool 2! We had a successful Halloween parade and want to thank all of the parents that came along for the walk! We wrapped up all of our activities for Room on the Broomtoday. The kids loved making their own onomatopoeias and spelling with scrambled letters. We will be hanging up their awesome work on the bulletin board outside the class. We also had 'growing Zombies' at the science table that the kids paid close attention to all week and were intrigued by how much they grew by the end of the week. They were excited to be able to trace and color on them today.
We will be continuing our author study on Julia Donaldson next week by reading and focusing on The Gruffalo. We will be doing lots of activities related to the characters in the story as well as the forest they live in. Check out some curriculum highlights below.
Literacy: Gruffalo Letter Matching Bingo
Art Table: Designing an animal mask from the story
Dramatic Play: A forest with a cave and fire pit to make 'Gruffalo crumble'
Math: Forest Discovery Boards with acorns, twigs and pond rocks
Playdough: Making 'Gruffalos'
Important News & Events:
1. There will be no school on Friday, November 11th in observance of Veterans' Day.
2. With Halloween week coming to an end, we ask that you do not pack candy in your child's lunch. Please save the special treats for at home!
3. Also, be sure to check lunch items for peanuts. Several high school students have peanut allergies that enter our classroom so it is important we don't have any contamination.
We will be updating the website with pictures from the Halloween parade as well as from the rest of the week!
Have a wonderful and relaxing weekend!
