10/14-10/18 This week we learned about Community Helpers. We discussed how the dentist helps us keep our teeth healthy and strong. We practiced brushing pretend teeth and created a big tooth out of cotton balls. We even used our cutting skills to use scissors to cut out teeth on ovals,triangles and rectangles. We read a story called The Post Office Book, Mail and How It Moves. We learned that mail use to be delivered by the Pony Express. We had fun in the dramatic play area stamping our "letters" and envelopes. We then created a little mailbox out of construction paper. We look forward to learning about Firefighters and exploring the Fire Truck when it comes to visit us on Friday. We learned what Stop, Drop and Roll means and made a headband to help remind us. We are working hard on learning the concepts of top,middle and bottom .We created towers with unifix cubes to help us use those words. We are learning that when we write a letter we always start at the top.We continue to practice our grip when holding a pencil and our crayons. We will be playing,singing, counting and learning letter sounds each day.
If there are any changes in your child's schedule, please send a note in with pertinent information or email me. If needed, you can always call the office if changes are made during the day and they will alert me of the change. Safety of your child is top priority!
