Welcome to Preschool!
Theme this week: From Season to Season Updated: 4/6/18
In math this week, we focused worked on our shapes, graphing and counting. Each class day the students become more confident in counting and number recognition.
Every day we practice writing our names at arrival time. Our MN Reading Corps tutor works with us one on one to make sure that we are using proper hand grip, using only an uppercase letter for our first letter, and using the correct writing form. We also try to write our own names on all station projects that we complete. This week we introduced students to the sound of oo. We use Jolly Phonics to create a short jingle to include what sound the letters oo makes.
On Mondays, we use play-doh to create the letters. On Wednesdays, we use our fingers in sand to draw the letter, and on Fridays we get to practice writing the letter with markers.
Letters that we have learned so far this year:
A, C, D, E, G, H, I, K, L, M, N, O, P, R, S, T, U, L, F, B, J, Z, V.

SAFARI NORTH FIELD TRIP: The end of the year field trip has been set! We will be going to Safari North Zoo in Brainerd on Wednesday, May 16. Permission form will be coming soon!
We are continuing our Bible concept: God will help and protect me wherever I am. We read Joshua 3-4:18 This story, titled "Crossing the Jordan" shares with us how God create a wall in the river to allow Joshua and his people to cross without getting hurt. We talked about the amazing things that are possible with God and how when we believe and trust in Him, he will always keep us safe.
In science this week we have been learning about the different seasons. We are recalling the information we learned about the weather to know what types of weather we see in each season. We took a deeper look into what happens to a Maple tree as it goes through each season. Maple trees, like bears, take a long winters nap and awake in the spring again!

Mrs. Waytashek has very few students in interventions! AWESOME!! Because of this, she is able to take a few extra students still in yellow into the hallway for some fun extra interactive learning games! The students are really enjoying these games!
