There's not just one chef in Pre-K! No, we ALL put on our chef hats and worked together to prepare for our Thanksgiving Feast on Tuesday! The kids made cornbread muffins and cranberry sauce (jello) on Friday.
Please enjoy the pictures :)
It is all about play and making learning fun! As we work with our hands, building strength by manipulating playdough, small connecting toys, painting, etc., we are preparing to become writers! We learn to firmly grasp writing tools and gain pencil control. We have been working on drawing lines and shapes that will help us to write letters. Now that we have pencil control and can identify the letters in our name, we have begun to practice writing our names. We are so proud and we hope you are too!
Mrs. Pelletter visited us again this year and read two Thanksgiving stories. The children just love our monthly guest readers! She also made us yummy turkey cookies to enjoy after story time. Thank you Mrs. Pelletter!!!
Each Wednesday a student from Mrs. Ruffo's First Grade class comes to our Pre-K classroom to read to our children. This is our first week and our special guest reader is Chance. This is very special to me personally as these children were from my very first Pre-K class upon being hired at Forestville. I am just beaming seeing how much they've grown! We have amazing teachers at Forestville Elementary for sure!
The kiddos are doing a great job sorting by color and size! They are catching on quick! Once we practice sorting by shape, the children will know all three rules for classification. Kudos Kids!
Our Halloween Party was filled with fun and activity! Because we made a healthy smoothie to serve at the party, our class is now $500 richer as we won the Healthy Alliance Contest thanks to you for allowing us to use pictures of your kiddos for the contest! (photos used only included children whose parent returned the permission slip). We also dunked for apples (using spoons in the water table), participated in a bean bag toss, and played a balance the pumpkin game.
A few pictures from our Halloween Party.
Mr. Franklin, Jayden's grandpa, visited our classroom and made us some yummy caramel apples with all the toppings! Thank you Mr. Franklin!!!!!
Today we got to ride in one of those BIG yellow school buses to the High School. It was there that we watched a snippet of the Beauty and The Beast play presented by Forestville Middle/High School. We don't know which was more fun...the bus ride or the play! In either case, it was a nice addition to our day. Those students have worked so hard and we were excited to find out that could be us someday!
The play runs from November 9-11th, 7pm. There is also a matinee presentation on the 11th at 2pm. Tickets are available at the school or you can purchase them at the door (if available). We hope to see you there!
