From the Remote Newsletter:

This week we read Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses by Kimberly and James Dean and On Monday When it Rained by Cherryl Kachenmeister. These books focused on different types of feelings and explored how people express feelings using their words and their faces.  

The children had an opportunity to act out different feelings in our Small Group meetings and discuss why we experience emotions in various situations. We also used art materials to create “feelings faces” to represent different emotions through our artwork! We discussed our work with our friends and felt proud of what we created!

We are encouraging children talk about their feelings with friends, family members and teachers, especially when something upsets them, such as not sharing toys.  We have also been learning about how our actions can make others feel.  

Next week we will explore all the things we like about ourselves! We will be learning how to create a self portrait and continuing to talk about feelings!

From the Hybrid Newsletter:

This past week we have continued to practice our routines in the classroom. We have been continuing discussions on how to be safe in our school (classroom, outside play, fire drills, stairs, etc).

We read On Monday When it Rained by Cherryl Kachenmeister. This book focused on different types of feelings.  The children had an opportunity to act out different feelings and have also been encouraged to talk about them, especially when something upsets them, such as not sharing toys.  We have been learning about how our actions can make others feel.  

We also introduced our class mood meter/feelings chart.  This is an area where the children can put their picture on the emotion that they are feeling.  They are welcome to move that picture to another feeling as the day progresses. 

Next week we will explore all the things we like about ourselves! We will be learning how to create a self portrait and continuing to talk about feelings!

We had a great first week of school! We adjusted to our new school routines, discussed rules to help us be safe and kind, and learned about sharing toys, stories and ideas with our friends and families!

Next week we will continue to learn our daily routines. We will also be practicing on talking about our feelings throughout the school day.

Pre-K Weekly Activities – June 1-5

Welcome to our final unit of study on Transformation.  To transform means to make a thorough or dramatic change in form, appearance or character.  In other words, transformation is a big change!  This week we are looking back at some of the different changes we have seen this year.
