Red Robins February News

Tustin Preschool

Look what we learned last month!

In January we had so much to do!  We welcomed the New Year by making a firework art display.  We did a lot of weird science projects.  We made our own “goop” and playdough.  We looked for rollie pollies and worms to learn a little more about what they eat and how they live.  We had the fire department and police department visit us to talk about fire safety and stranger danger.  We even had an opportunity to go inside the fire truck and police car!  Celebrated our 100th day of school our class made trail mix with everyone’s 100 of our favorite cereal, candy, etc.  It was so much fun dressing up in our favorite super hero costume.  We had so much fun and we are looking forward to February. 

What we will learn this month…

For February we will be making secret Valentines for our moms and dads.  We will be having a special valentine snack party 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 24 cards already signed with your child’s name on them, but not addressed we will be passing them out to our friends.  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!  To help us with number recognition we will be doing a special Dr.  Seuss project!  Another Special project lined up for February is exploring with magnets.  We will be making a chart to graph what objects are magnetic and which are not.  We will be very busy in February but our Red Robins are ready to continue learning and having fun!
