Let's Party!!!!!!!

I first have to apologize for this entry taking so long to be entered, I am so sorry!!!

This was the last day of school and we combined both classes. We can't believe the year has come to an end and we have enjoyed learning with your children so much. Thank you for support and help this year, it always makes a difference.

Our morning started much the same as always with a morning welcome activity. We had folders, shapes, and puzzles out. We sang our learning box question song which is a great cue for the kids to clean up and make their way to the preschool room. Our LBQ today- What is your favorite thing you learned in preschool?

Next we did the pledge/ weather/ calendar. We also sang our days of the week song and the today is?... song. We really wanted you parents to get a feel for our morning routine. We then reviewed one of our shapes by playing freeze tag. This has been one of our favorite activities all year.

Next we read I Love School by Philemon Sturges. After the book we sang our ABC'S in our favorite Opera and Dinosaur voices. We then reviewed some letter recognition and sounds. We also sang our letter sound song using the letter Bb.

The Letter Bb to the tune of Frere Jacques
The letter B. The letter B. (make ASL sign for letter, showing one hand then the other)
Has a sound. Has a sound. (bring 1 hand to ear and then the other hand to the other ear)
What sound do you make? What sound do you make? (palms facing up, shrug shoulders)
/b/ /b/ /b/! /b/ /b/ /b/! (Make ASL sign for letter, move hand forward and backward for each sound)

After that we counted to 20, reviewed our colors and shapes, ending with our color song.

Now we were all ready to eat and party!!!!!! Thanks for all the yummy food, it sure was delicious!! We headed over to the park planning on the kids getting wet in the splash park and Miss Laura even called the previous day to get the hours. We had no idea it was broken and it was just bad luck. Hopefully it was still fun and no one was too hot!!! We had lots of water and ice to cool off with, but not the same as the water spouts!!

What a fun year and we hope you all enjoyed it as much as us. We love what we do and thank you for supporting us and sending your wonderful children to learn with us... See you next year!!!
