Preschool Office News:  ATTENTION!   We still have some out of date medical forms.  Our state inspection is coming soon, and technically, our inspector can ask the students with out dated forms to not come back to school until they are updated!

Mixed-up Chameleons News-Today we had a special visit from Fletcher B’s guinea pig!  We also wrapped  up our unit on “E” is for Engine and started “F” is for Fire Safety.  We  worked really hard practicing writing our names and the letter “F” for Writing workshop, and read “Dinofours: It’s Fire Drill Day” by Steve Metzger for Reading workshop.  We also enjoyed our lesson on the color Brown!

Very Hungry Caterpillar and Very Busy Spider News:  This week we studied “E is for Engine”.  We learned about the short e and long e sounds and listed lots of words that started with “E”.  We learned a lot about fire safety including recognizing the difference between toys and dangerous fire things.  We learned the “Fire Safety Dog” song and the “Never Play With Matches” song.  We practiced Stop, Drop, and Roll and continued work on our core curriculum activities.

Friday Enrichment News-Stop, drop and roll and fire safety  were all introduced last week as we made our “put out the flames” fire art, learned what fire needs to grow and practiced a fire drill.  This week we will talk all about pumpkins! Our letter will be F.  The children have enjoyed showing their letter of the week item!  Also, please remember to separate your child’s snack and lunch.  The red wagon outside my room is for snack while lunches will go on the red wagon outside the 2’s room.

Brown Bear/Polar Bear News:  We started our Fire Fighter unit and Halloween Fun unit this week.  Our felt board story was about the Five Little Pumpkins and our fingerplay was about Five Firefighters.  We started to learn two new songs this week – Firefighters and our Fire Safety Song.  Shape Dog worked on learning a circle and Denise the Doctor helped everyone with the letter D.  There was a duck inside our letter mystery box this week!  For art, we made “fire” by rolling golf balls through orange and yellow paint.  We made fire trucks with the help of glue sticks.  Finally, we put “icing and sprinkles” on yummy doughnuts.  Have a great weekend.  Maybe we’ll see you at the Wyoming Fall Festival!
