A lot has been going on around the preschool, and as usual we have been a busy bunch! It wasn't long until our new group of students became acclimated with each other and the teachers and we were able to dig into our curriculum. We started off by having a Five Senses unit. The preschoolers had a wonderful time exploring all of their senses and making "sense" of the many ways they interpret the world!!
Here are some kids on a "Senses Walk".
And here are some cuties on "hearing" day!!
What better of a place to explore your senses than the creek?
After we learned all about our Five Senses, we focused on ourselves and how much we've grown and developed since being babies!!! We learned all the ways we are unique as individuals, the many different types of families we all come from, and the beautiful and many different ways we enjoy life and play! We also took a look at all the wonderful things the children can do now that they are "big kids" and not babies anymore!
Here are some trying baby food! Yuck! Glad we're big kids now and can try a variety of healthy and new foods!!
We looked at what it takes to properly take care of babies. Babies can't do anything on their own like big kids can!!
Here are some kids using their big kid capabilities to make strong towers. We tried to see who could make the strongest tower!
And then of course we had our wonderful Grandparent's Tea Party! The party was a huge success! All of the grandparents were so awesome, and everyone had a fabulous time! How precious it was to see all of the grandparents playing, laughing, dancing, and even spoiling their little ones with sweet little treats! Take a look:
Great work at the start of the school year everyone! I think we're off to a wonderful start! October switches now to our Community Helpers unit!! We have MANY parents who have jobs/positions that our preschoolers would just love to learn about, so if you feel like you'd be able to share what you do with the class, please let a teacher know!
