2K Little Learners — Mrs. Schumacher

week of sept.20-preschool friends

We are celebrating our school friends this week as the theme.  2k will get to take home a book with their friends' pictures in and simple text. We will create a friends helping hands tree and read a story about how our hands help and not hurt our friends. We have all been treating eachother very nicely, only need few reminders about personal space and sharing. 2K will take a "find the friends" walk. I will hide our pictures around the school, especially near places that we will start going to in the next month or so such as the gym, library, and church. We will also read the story "Rainbow fish".

Jesus time:The Creation story will be our Bible story this week. 2 year olds are very curiuos about God's world around them, so it makes sense to add more time on this topic. We'll use the senses we talked about last week to continue discovering and praising God for all that he made for us.  Students will help make a class "baggie book" with items I collect from outside to look at and investiogate Please also feel free to bring in a little baggie of an item(s) you help your child to collect from outside such as leaves, flowers, pinecones etc. Thank you for your help!  

Our fine motor focus will include extra activities with stickers, bingo dot markers, and pipe cleaners that we put through a strainer.  The class enjoyed taking a walk outside last week. We will continue to try going once a week. Please send a jacket as needed with cooler morning temps.
