Yellow Sunshines January News

Orange Preschool

Look what we learned last month!

In the month of  December, the Yellow Sunshines learned about winter and celebrations around the world.  The children sorted and matched colors, shapes, and numbers, the letters A-M with flannels and flash cards.  They also made lots of art to decorate our classrooms and homes for the holidays, and we made a special gift for our parents.  As a class, we made orange juice and blueberry muffins.  Santa came for a visit and a book exchange and it was a blast!!
