Yellow Sunshines December News

Orange Preschool

Look what we learned last month!

In the month of November, the Yellow Sunshines learned about family, Fall Harvest, and Seasons.  They worked on the letters A-K, the color brown, numbers 1-10, and the shape triangle.  The children had so much fun mixing different colors of paint, family trees, and making collages of families and leaves.  As a class, we had fun making goo, edible play-dough, pudding in a bag, muffins, and Kool-Aid.  All the children enjoyed making special cards and art for their parents for Thanksgiving.

What we will learn this month…

Isaac is potty trained 🙂

All the sunshines are doing a great job sharing and cleaning up.

They can also recognize all their shapes, most of their colors, and are getting better with the scissors and tracing.

Some of our sunshines are working very hard on the potty and their ABC's.
