Red Robins September News

Orange Preschool

Look what we’ve learned!

The week of Outerspace, we talked about space and named all the

planets. The children made a space picture. We also had a meteor shower with crumbled paper. We had a bike day and we pretended that our bikes were spaceships. We also wore our favorite Pajamas to school.

For the week of knigths and dragons, the children dressed like princesses and princes. We had some very cute costumes. For art, the Red Robins made crowns and shields. They played hide the dragon and catch the dragon. The children built a castle out of blocks and they did an awesome job! Officer McGruff visited the children and spoke about safety.

For the week of wild wild west week, the childrenwore cowboys and cowgirls all week long. For art, we made cowboys hats and sherriff badges. Whatever little came to our school and the children had pony rides and took pictures.

For our last week of summer, they were able to bring their favorite circus animal for Circus week. We had a Pajama day and played with shaving cream. The children enjoyed a really big parachute with beach balls, bean bag toss, and waterballon toss. The Red Robins made different sizes of bubbles. They also made clown faces and cotton candy. They enjoyed a special treat of popsicles and ice cream. We said good-bye and Good Luck to the Red Robins that started kindergarten. 

 

 

 

What we will learn in the month of September…

In the month of September, we will be welcoming all our new Red Robins and learning about Back to School fun and going over all the classroom rules. The Red Robins will be decorating apples and making apple trees for art. The week of September 18th, we will have an apple week. We will learn about the different apples, names, colors, and taste. They will learn about the days of the week and months of the year. And in October we will start the Zoo Phonics.

Together we will be talking about "All about me, I am Special" so we need all the family collages in by September 27th. We will learn about our families and draw pictures of things that make us special.
