May is upon us!! We have almost made it through the year. We are in the last week of our Growing and Changing theme. This past week, we talked about eating healthy. We talked about foods that are everyday foods and foods that are sometimes foods. We learned about Myplate and how to fill our plate with proper portions. We also began Numbers Bootcamp. We are doing 20 days of numbers!! Yes, the Silly hats are back and the kiddos love them! We had a fun time learning about Noah’s Ark. We made a fun ark craft and learned that the Lord watches over all who love him. We also had a fire drill and an earthquake drill. Some of the kiddos didn’t enjoy the loud noise of the fire alarm, but they thought it was pretty fun to get under the tables.
This week, we will be learning about how plants grow and have an opportunity to watch something grow. We will continue to learn about numbers. We will also continue to review our letters and sounds. Very exciting news!! Preschool will be attending the all-school mass on Friday, May7th. This is the mass where we honor Mother Mary during the May crowning. If your child attends school on Friday, they will need to be at school prior to 8:00am so they can go to the bathroom and wash hands before we leave for mass. We will leave at 8:05. We will also be working on a special Mother’s day project and something to recognize our grandparents.
