Red Robins October News

Tustin Preschool

Look what we learned last month!

            Some art projects we did were:  A self-portrait, Book detective fingerprints, owls and apple fun.   We used goldfish crackers to help us with our numbers.  We also had parents bring in family pictures so the children could tell us all about their families and what makes them special.  The children were able to explore with foam dough and sill putty! The month was full of fun art activities!

What we will learn this month…

            For the month of October our themes will be “Feelings/Emotions”, ‘Five Senses”, “Pumpkins/Spiders” and “Seasons”.  We will focus on the letters Aa-Ee.  Some art projects we have planned are to make icky spiders, 5 senses book, and haunted house and Halloween fun.  We will be exploring with pumpkins and learning all about growing them and caring them as well.  We will also begin our weekly homework this month. Download the homework, help your child complete it at home and turn it in at the end of each week.  We are ready to continue learning and having fun!
