Tustin Preschool

Look what we learned last month!

In October the children had fun learning their five senses.  We collaged fall trees, spring flower and yellow sun for seasons.  We also painted black bats, and made a jack-o-lantern for Halloween.  The children practice their shapes and colors.  Learned letters B-E.  We also have been practicing tracing our names.  We had a great time at our Halloween party the children enjoyed all the delicious healthy snacks.  The children are doing such a good job following the class rules and routines.  Yay!

What we will learn this month…

In November we will talk abut families and why we love our families and fun things families do together.  We will also have fun making colorful turkeys and Indian hats to celebrate Thanksgiving.  During Transportation week we will make a truck using shapes, collage a car and paint an airplane.  We still need lots of practice on holding a marker or pen properly when tracing and drawing.  We will learn letters F-I and their sounds.
