Blue Birds February News

Tustin Preschool

Look what we learned last month!

In January the blue birds enjoyed playing community helpers dress-up.  They decorated doctor’s bag and painted a tooth using a toothbrush.  We also practice cutting with scissors.  Learned letters Oo-Rr and there sounds.  We practice a lot of tracing and writing our names.  We also enjoyed the visit form the officer friendly spoke to us about “stranger danger” and got to sit on her police car.  The fire engine came by to visit us and we got to see their cool equipment and they us when putting out a fire.  We practiced counting with money and celebrated our 100th day of school.  It was so much fun dressing up in our favorite super hero costume.  Everyone is learning their birthday.  We had a month full of learning and fun activities!

What we will learn this month…

In February we will make fun stuff for friendship and Valentines.  Paint using the colors red, purple and pink.  Make special valentine’s card using lots of hearts.  Also we will learn about Dr. Seuss and Nursery Rhymes, learning letters Ss-Vv.  Learning our birthday’s numbers 1-30 and tracing or drawing shapes.  We will also have a snack party for Valentine’s Day on Friday, February 14th at 9am.  Sign up will be posted by the sign in/out book.  Your child will need a lunch on the day of the party.  Please make sure to have 16 cards already signed with your child’s name on them, but not addressed.  We would like for our parents to bring in their child’s party item and cards by Wednesday, February 12th to make sure we don’t forget them!
