This week in Preschool we completed a letter review of letters A-N. Our theme of the week was bears. The children learned about brown bears, polar bears, and black bears. Throughout the week we read both fiction and non-fiction books about bears. We also discussed where various types of bears live and what kind of food they eat.

Centers included:

  • What’s in the letter bag? game
