Showcase Week - Newsletter

Dear Preschool Families,

This week we’ve been hard at work practicing the challenge of putting on our snow gear independently and with confidence.  The boot hallway has been designed and the heat has been turned up as we welcome this cold weather with curiousity of snow and cold noses.  On Tuesday, we sang and danced with Danielle as we continue to anticipate our Winter Concert this coming Monday, December 19 at 6pm.  We bundled up for outdoor play where we built snow creations and loved how fast we went down the slide with our snow pants.

Wednesday we welcomed parents into our classrooms to explore and play with us. We played reindeer freeze tag and painted the snow, along with the fort we built last week.  

Showcase Week as been fantastically fun.  Thursday we were excited for the opportunity to visit the toddler classroom and explore their construction learning zone.  On Friday, we continued the Showcase fun by hosting the toddlers for interactive storytelling and songs.  

We wrapped up our week by setting up the Dan (our school gym) with obstacles and games that developed into gross-motor exercise.
