Blue Birds November News

Orange Preschool

 

Look what we learned last month!

In the month of October, the Blue Birds learned about Feelings and Emotions, Our Five Senses, Manners and Self-Esteem, the Seasons, and all about Halloween. The Children made lots of Halloween Art. For example, Haunted houses, bats, ghosts, cats, pumpkin art, etc. As a school, we had a blast trick-or-treating and sharing all our great fall treats. Also, we started our Zoo Phonics with the letters Aa-Ee and we practiced tracing our names and letters.
