Mixed-up Chameleon/Kindergarten Preparation Class News:  Today we continued our Right to Read weeks by reading books by Donald Crews.  The preschool pals spent a lot of good time working on their Freight Train hats.   They colored, cut, glued and wrote their names. The preschool pals also participated in vegetable painting and participated in authoring our class books that includes an adventure to the jungle with ghosts, princesses, vampires, and bad guys. J

Very Hungry Caterpillar and Very Busy Spider News:  This week we began our author studies.  We learned read books by and learned about Dr. Seuss and Lois Ehlert.  We discussed the definition of what an author is and became authors together as we worked on writing a class book.  During our writing, we are learning that print goes from left to right, beginning writing process skills, recognizing letters, and how to use punctuation to emphasize our writing.  We also made a fish in a dish to go along with the Cat in the Hat, and made playdough snowmen to go with the book Snowballs by Lois Ehlert..  The preschool pals were very well-behaved and well-mannered during our state inspection and enjoyed talking to our inspector.

Friday Enrichment News-(Mrs. Susan)-The boys and girls all got a lot of one on one work done.  Each of them cut, stapled, put together and wrote their name on their “Coin Collection” books.  They all enjoyed looking at each coin and making the picture magically appear in their books.  Next class we will be doing papier mache so dress your child accordingly, it can get pretty messy!  Also our letter of the week will be T.

Brown Bear/Polar Bear News:  (Mrs. Katrina & Mrs. Kim)-  This week the kids had a great time playing with shaving cream.  It was fun to make a huge mess!  We also finished our Valentine unit.  So much loving and sharing has been happening with the two’s this past month.  Next week we will start St. Patricks Day fun and we will be spending all month gearing up for our Parky’s Farm trip.  We will start learning our “Yellow Duck” and “Eight Baby Pigs” fingerplays.  Our feltboard story will be “Five Green Shamrocks.”  Our songs this month will be “We’re going to the Farm” (Farmer in the Dell), “Farm Sounds” (Wheels on the Bus), and P-I-G-G-Y (Bingo).
