A Look at Our Week:

“Be silly. Be quirky. Be odd. Be unique. Be weird. Be colorful. Be okay with being different. Be just the way you are…no matter what, you will always be loved.” The story Be You! by Peter H Reynolds led to a conversation about being our own true selves and loving who we are. 

Mylah- I love my heart.

Forrest- I love that I’m good at decorating. 

Aubrey- I love that I’ve had a great lifetime.

Kipton- I love that I can wrestle.

Lucus- I love about how I sleep.

Noah- I love that I can watch a rainbow.

Parker- I love all the things about myself.  I make myself happy!

Emma- I love that I can play.

Bodhi- I just love my mom and my heart.

After feeling all the self-love, the preschoolers completed their February self-portraits. Drawing their hearts and cutting them out with some help from a teacher, we taped their hearts to watercolor paper, added their self-portraits with pastels,  and then a splash of color with watercolor to the negative space. Be sure to look for their latest creations in the classroom! 

The kids have thoroughly enjoyed meeting parents and faculty during our guest reader time, and the faculty always loves getting a special moment with our littlest students.  This week, Mr. Damon stopped by to share the story The Icky Sticky Frog with the kiddos, and it appeared Mr. Damon enjoyed the silly tale just as much, if not more, than the preschoolers.  We did not check out new books this week and will resume book checkouts after spring break.

Our animal exploration continued throughout our center time and daily discovery. We also practiced some fine motor skills like how to hold scissors and cut paper, as well as, using colorful washy tape to practice that pincer grasp while peeling off one piece of tiny tape at a time.  The children used alphabet letters to match uppercase to lowercase letters and played a matching game to identify whether animals lived in the forest, desert, ocean, or Arctic.

Have a beautiful weekend!
