News Flash from Miss Lori’s Pre-K Class – March 17th

Dear Pre-K Families,

The letter “Ss” was introduced.  The children learned the sound the letter makes and thought of many words that begin with that letter.  They also made a “Scarecrow Puppet.”  All of the children practiced writing the upper and lower case “Ss”.  We also introduced the letter “Tt”.  All of the children made a “Tigger Puppet” and thought of many “Tt” words.

We have begun a unit on “Weather”.  This week we discussed and observed the different types of clouds.  We also read It Looked Like Spilt Milk, by Charles Shaw and Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs by Judi Barrett.  Our class learned about “Cirrus” clouds, “Cumulus” clouds, “Stratus” clouds, and “Cumulonimbus” clouds.  We created an art project based on the story It Looked Like Spilt Milk.  The children had so much fun guessing what everyone’s clouds looked like.  We also will discuss and make a volcano!

We have been speaking about the magic of St. Patrick’s Day.  Each of the children made a Leprechaun and a pot of gold, which has been hanging on our door.  We celebrated St. Patrick’s Day Thursday and Friday.  Those naughty Leprechauns turned our room upside down!  Our milk was green and our water and bagels were green.  There were little green footprints on our ceiling and big and little green footprints were on our door.  Our garbage was upside down, toys were scattered everywhere and the room was just a mess!  They even left us a note that said, “Find Me”!  We went outside but none of us could catch him!

Lastly, we had a very special visitor- “Miss Tallulah T. Tuttle” came to see us on Wednesday, A.K.A Miss Sheryl!  She taught all of the children the proper “t party etiquette”.  The boys and girls were taught how to use their napkins properly.  They were also taught “pinky’s up” when eating or drinking and definitely no slurping when drinking.  She made delicious “T” cookies, which the girls and boys devoured.  All of us thoroughly enjoyed our special “guest”!

As you can see, we all had a lot of fun and excitement here at Red Robin!

 

Enjoy your weekend!

 

Warmly,

 

Miss Lori and Miss Kristine
