Their little voices can be heard excitedly singing, “Are you ready to start our day? We are ready to learn! Let’s have a good day!” as they make their way to our meeting carpet to begin our morning.  Our preschool friends have shown us that they are more and more familiar with our classroom routines and schedules every day. And now that we’ve got our routine down, it’s time to figure out what fun new things we want to learn about.  The teachers had one-on-one conferences with each of the kiddos to see what they were curious about. We have so many exciting things to explore thanks to their ideas.  

 “What do you want to learn more about?”

  • Aubrey- Food! Like to wash it if it has bugs on it!
  • Parker- I want to learn about music.  I’m great at music!
  • Dax- Maybe about plants.
  • Preston- I want to whistle.
  • Heidi- I want to read lots of books.
  • Forrest- asteroids and planets
  • Emma- I don’t know.  I just want to play dress up!
  • Lola- Rainbows

Art time introduced lines through the story A Line Can Be by Laura Ljungkvist.  First, the preschoolers practiced skywriting all of the lines introduced in the story and next put their fine motor skills to work.  They were presented with black paper and bottles of white glue.  Their unique lines came to life on the paper as their little hands worked to squeeze and manipulate the glue.

“What are you creating?”

  • Sophia- a line that shoots fire.  My criss-cross lines make a boulder.
  • Lucas- Look! They’re messy!
  • Henry- a car
  • Scarlett- They’re spikey!
  • Mylah- a road
  • Lennon- high lines
  • Dax- It’s raining glue! I’m so excited!
  • Noah- messy lines
  • Leonardo- Hmmmm…curvy lines!

We can’t wait to continue to practice our mark-making and see where it takes us!  We hope you all have a lovely weekend!
