In preschool this year, we have 11 kids in the morning and 12 in the afternoon. The kids have been working very hard on letter recognition and letter sounds, number recognition and counting, shapes and colors, and writing their names. We spend each week focusing on a new theme, letter, sound, color, shape, and number. Center exploration is a great time for the kids to freely learn new skills such as sharing and taking turns.
Miss Cassidy just finished up home visits on November 15th, 16th, and 17th. At each home visit, we discussed the new skills each child was learning at school and at home along with coming up with a goal for each child to meet by the end of the year.
The preschool class has also been on two field trips so far this year. We visited the grocery store, where we got to see their office, where the trucks unload the new foods, and the meat department. We also visited the City Café, where we learned about what goes on in the kitchen and the different jobs that take place in a restaurant. The kids enjoyed both field trips very much! We also had a father/father figure activity at the Newman Grove city park. Jamie from Nebraska Game and Parks came and put on a nature scavenger hunt for the dads and the kids.
We are looking forward to seeing how the preschool continues to grow and learn throughout the rest of the year!
