Tustin Preschool

Look what we learned last month!

In November we had a lot of fun talking about our families and how special they are.  We also learned about the four seasons.  We practiced sorting and matching!  The children enjoyed making silly turkey handprints as well as Indian and Pilgrim hats for Thanksgiving.  The children collaged a car, made a truck using different types of transportation.  We practice writing letters F-I and their sounds.

What we will learn this month…

In December we will continue to talk about transportation.  We will learn about opposites, letters J-N and their sounds.  We will continue to practice tracing and writing our names.  We will decorate a Christmas tree and make a Christmas wreath.  For winter the children will paint a snowflake and put together a snowman.
