Marching into March with PreK Extended Day
Whats happening in March at PreK Extended Day?
- We have been continuing with our letter of the week in Pre-K, we will be starting March off with the letter P. Through our letter of the week activities the students become familiar with the sounds of each letter, the shape each letter holds, and how to write each letter. Our activities daily include a book and a craft that relates to our theme or letter of the week.
-Fresh Fridays are happening every Friday in Prek Extended Day! This means that we cook after rest. The kids love to cook and see the transformation of food. This is a great opportunity for us to introduce new foods and incorporate math elements.
-Children have been earning Warm and Fuzzies! A warm and fuzzy is a pom pom that children earn when they commit random acts of kindness such as using manners, helping friends and teachers, sharing, and simply doing and saying things that make you feel warm and fuzzy. The children are working towards a party!
-March 2nd we will be celebrating the Doctors birthday! That is Dr.Seuss of course! Theodor Seuss Geisel better knowns as Dr.Seuss was born in 1904 and would be 107 years old today! We will be reading many books by Dr.Seuss on this day as well as creating fun hats in his recognition! We will continue to discuss and read Dr.Seuss books through the month of March.
-The first day of Spring will spring upon us on March 20th. We will be welcoming the spring season by doing some planting in our classroom! Keep your eyes open for our spring blossoms on our window ledge.
