Half-day Preschool-October 21, 2022

Looking Back…
*Letter “Ff” week was fantastic!  We created little Frankensteins from the letter of the week, read Crankenstein and Frankencrayon, and our Jolly Phonics song was all about going to the beach and watching the fish deflate.  We loved the sound the fish made as he deflated.  Strangely enough-our classroom pumpkin inflatable also deflated and made the same “Ff” sound.  Fun times 🙂
*The LaGrange Fire Department visited and taught us all about fire safety.  We learned all about Stop, Drop and Roll and we all received our own fire hats and coloring books.  Thank you to our firefighters for sharing your day with us and for all you do.  We will be sure to remember all you taught us…especially during our Community Helpers week.
*Playing with our 5th grade Buddies was so much fun.  We thanked God for a beautiful Fall day and were able to do all of the activities we learned about in our Religion lesson this week…running, jumping, climbing, dancing, skipping and dancing.
*This week we learned all about the number six and counted all things Halloween.  We used our big black pumpkin and scooped out our numbers during centers.  We are counting every day, all day long.  Please be sure to keep counting at home!
*Congratulations to our PBIS winner, Finley, on a fabulous week.  Keep up the good work being respectful, responsible and compassionate!
