Tustin Preschool

Look what we learned last month!

We began our school year by learning the class rules, routine and learning to use our manners.  We also worked on self help skills like washing our hands properly, dressing ourselves with little help, cleaning up after ourselves, etc.  We have also been learning the ZooPhonics letters and sounds.  We decorated a lunch box and backpack for Back to School Week and made handprints as well as an “All About Me” book.

What we will learn this month…
