Red Robins November News

Orange Preschool

 

Look what we learned last month!

In the month of October, the Red Robins learned about Manners and Self Esteem. We worked with the children on always remembering to say their pleases and thank yous. They also learned about Feelings and Emotions. The children talked about things that make them feel sad. For example, when our friends say mean things or taking a favorite toy away. Another emotion the children talked about was what things make them happy. For example, getting a RAD award or going in the treasure box. They made their own Jack-O- Lanterns and the Red Robins made their own faces on them. When the children were finished, we asked them to tell us about the emotion they made on their pumpkins.

For the week of Five Senses, we used all of our 5 senses with snack. Red Robins put their hand in a mystery box where they had to guess what it was in the box. They also listened to different sounds and tried to name the sound.

The best week was the week of Halloween. We made pumpkins, bats, Haunted houses, mummies, triangle witches, etc. We also had our Halloween party and we dressed up and went trick-or-treating with our friends and parents.
