Full Day Preschool-November 6, 2021

Looking Back…
*Nursery Rhyme time kept us busy this week.  We learned the Itsy Bitsy Spider and sang and danced to many different versions.  We will focus on a different nursery rhyme each week.  Early literacy research shows that nursery rhymes are instrumental in mastering pre-reading skills.  Please practice reciting and singing nursery rhymes at home.
*We attended the all school All Saints’ Day Mass on Monday and we did an awesome job.  Thanks to our 6th Grade Buddies for their guidance.  Our Buddies are the best!
*Hat Day was a fun way to learn all about our letter of the week!
*Our Buddies helped us make our first Thanksgiving project.  We learned about gratitude and talked about our most thankful things.  Our Buddies are among our most thankful things(people)!  We will focus on gratitude this month, as well as throughout the year.
*Our Cool Cat of the Week, Evan, did a fantastic job this week.
*Happy Birthday to Thomas and thanks for the yummy cupcakes and goody bags:).

Let’s Give Them Something to Talk About…
*What does it mean to be grateful?  Talk about your most thankful things and the book we read, My Most Thankful Thing.  Note to all the Mommies…I highly recommend reading this book at home with your child.  Have your kleenex ready!
*Sing our Jolly Phonics songs for letters A-H.
*Discuss the all school Mass experience.
* How did we make our fall trees?
*How do we count our classmates each morning?
