Yellow Sunshines October News

Orange Preschool

Look what we learned last month!

In the month of September, The Sunshines learned our colors: red, yellow, and green. They worked on letter A, B, C,D, numbers 1 – 3, and the shapes: circle, square, and Oval. The children learned how to recognize the parts of our body, sharing, and getting to know our new friends. All of the Sunshines had fun making hand prints, foot prints, and loved tracing their bodies on paper and painting them. When we were done, we hung them around the classroom. The Sunshines had fun with playdough, shaving cream, and dumping beans. Parents brought in all kinds of apples, the children learned what was the same and what was different. After we talked about the apples, we tasted them. 

 

What we will learn this month…

In the month of October, we will be talking and learning about our five senses,

feelings, and emotions, the letters A-E , Number 3 and 4, the shapes: star and diamond, the trees, leaves, and the changes of the seasons.
