Happy October! It is so hard to believe that a whole month has passed! We have been having so much fun in Preschool I, playing and learning!
Our Tools of the Mind theme for this month, is family. We have been busy transforming our classroom into different parts of a house! Our block center is the bedroom, our dramatic play area is our kitchen, and our science area is our laundry room.
This month for literacy, we will be reviewing uppercase letters! We have been working on pre-reading skills by working on our Tools of the Mind activity; buddy reading! For our pre-writing practice, we have been making “dots” for Graphics Practice.
This month for math, we will be working on recognizing numbers 1-5, sorting, and reviewing our shapes and colors. Last month, I introduced our Tools of the Mind activity, remember and replicate. We worked on making a “ball” with play dough! This month, we are going to make “pancakes” and “snakes!”
Science and Social Studies
This month for science and social studies, we will be learning all about fall! Pumpkins, scarecrows, and Halloween, oh my! Last month, we began our fall theme by exploring apples! We also released our monarch butterflies that we helped raise!
