Yellow Sunshines February News

Orange Preschool

Look what we learned last month!

In the month of January, the Yellow Sunshines learned the color white and yellow, letters A-Q, and numbers 1-10.  We also learned about the shapes diamond and oval.  They learned about transportation and things that go, what is in our neighborhood, and opposites.  Our favorite activity we like to play with is play dough and shaving cream.  They also enjoy painting tracks with cars and painting with different textures.  All the children  worked very hard on recognizing their first letter on their name and our ABC's flashcards. 

 

What we will learn this month…

For the month of February,  the Yellow Sunshines will be learning about Friendship and love, colors Red and Pink,  numbers 1-10, and the letters A-R.  The Sunshines will practice tracing and scissor skills.  We will be creating lots of different messy creative arts with hearts to decorate our classroom and homes.  We will also be making a special card for a loved one.
