Hello Preschool Families!
This month we will be talking about clothes and feelings. We will talk about different types of clothes, materials, and items (like buttons, snaps, Velcro etc.) that might be found on clothes. We have been talking about different feelings and strategies to use to feel better, and how to tell someone else’s feelings – by looking at their face and body language. This helps us check in with our friends and correct the issue, so we can play and have fun at school.
Our dramatic play area turned into a clothes store for the children to try on different types of clothes included shoes, purses, bags, hats, jewelry, and more. It should be a blast!! Our block area has tree blocks along with VT woodland animals, and building structures (to use to build a city). Also in the classroom washing babies in the water table, rice in the sensory table, marble works, legos, magnetic dressing dolls, felt boards, and much more. We opened our free art area last week for children to go as they please to become their own artist. They have enjoyed writing letters to friends and family. *If you have any envelopes you would be willing to donate we would love them.
Our sorting and math area will have different colored clothes pins, corks, coins, matching baby socks, a variety of different math books, and other math activities. Our letter and writing area will have letter monster to match the alphabet to the letter chart, Wooden letter pieces to build uppercase letters, wooden matching letters, chalk and chalk boards, and paper and writing tools.
With a new month brings us a new sign in method – the children will find their picture and Velcro it to their name (later this year we will reuse this and add their last name to them). Also, a new greeting song for the children to learn. We will also be working on our shape songs that I will send home soon, so you can also work on this with your child.
Parent Teacher Conferences will be later this month. Please keep an eye out to sign up online. In your child’s Home School Folder you will find a letter to fill out about any topics you may want to bring up at conference time – please take a look at this and return it to me by Nov 7.
