Dear PreK Families,
Thank you so much for being flexible and sending your child in for the day of the WRS Thanksgiving Feast. All of the PreK students had a wonderful time and had good manners. We also have some very good eaters in PreK!
We have finished our unit about gingerbread. We did several art and craft projects. We read The Gingerbread Baby and The Gingerbread Friends by Jan Brett, The Gingerbread House by Scholastic, The Gingerbread Mouse by Katy Bratun, and The Gingerbread Man by Jim Aylesworth. We compared how the stories were alike and different and also voted on our favorite. We retold the story with character dolls and made our own gingerbread man. He was so naughty that he ran away from us! Our PreK classes also decorated 2 gingerbread houses that were donated to the Family Place for their annual Gingerbread Fundraiser.
Currently, we are working on a unit about the five senses. We will be reading books on the topic, such as: The Five Senses by Nuria Roca, My Five Senses by Margaret Miller, My Five Senses by Alliki, and Me and My Senses by Joan Sweeney. In adddition, we will be doing some hands on science experiments and writing our our own mini books.
Next week, we will have a special activity on Thursday, December 20th. PreK will be having pajama day! Students may wear their pajamas to school if they would like. We will have a special snack of popcorn and hot chocolate. We will still go outside for recess so please make sure to send in snow clothes to go over pajamas.
