As our preschoolers are settling in to the fall season, the children are finding more and more friendship and fun at St. Andrew’s Preschool. The letter L was introduced with great enthusiasm, as our first letter of the week. It is simple for tiny fingers to connect those lines. Our little ones have all been very busy learning about the many patterns on a lizard’s skin, which we then reproduced on our own watercolor paintings. We went on an early morning leaf hunt and even made healthy lemon muffins in our new kitchen! We had such fun discovering that the letter L is in so many words and things in the world.
The children explored the letter E with many different textures and mediums. They found out that hard boiled eggs can actually be rolled around to paint a picture and that a paper plate can be magically transformed into an adorable elephant. How fun to have passion fruit as the center of our science lesson! We scooped, smashed and strained each passion fruit and created some yummy passion fruit juice to taste. Whole child sensory learning is wonderful.
Last week, after hopping on hearts, we each created a Halloween hat using paper bags and LOTS of glitter. The letter H came just in time for the Halloween season and our preschoolers have found great delight in all things that start with H. Stay tuned for our next update on fun and friendship.
We love to share what our children are doing!
