Pre-K Week 6 Wrap-Up

Greetings Everyone!

Can you believe that we are ALREADY halfway through our first quarter of school? I know I sure can’t!

Even crazier to comprehend, is that Fall Break is a mere two weeks away!  (said in an excited, yet tired, teacher voice) 🙂

Nonetheless, we have been hard at work here in Pre-K!  As you may have noticed, more and more work examples are starting to come home. All the skills you have seen on these pages are things we are covering in class regularly. We have been completing our work in a variety of manners. Sometimes we work with Mrs. Schaefer as a whole group, while other times we work in small groups to better get the attention each student needs.  This also helps to group us by ability level, which assists us in growing and learning with our like peers. We are all trying our best, and completing the work to the best of our ability, which makes Mrs. Schaefer’s heart very happy! 🙂

This past Wednesday, September 14th, the weekly Wednesday Folder came home quite full. There were also several important papers, within the folder, that I would like to take time to talk about here…

Bubbles, Bubbles, BUBBLES!

I can without a doubt say, that blowing bubbles is one of our favorite outside activities.

We like to see how BIG we can make them, as well as see how high we can get them to go before they pop.

Sometimes we all sit and blow bubbles together, or sometimes we have friends that blow the bubbles and we have friends that chase and pop the bubbles.

Whatever the case, these little ones love to blow bubble in this beautiful sunny weather!

Check out some of our bubble fun!

Samantha is GREAT at blowing the biggest bubbles we've ever seen!

Soon, we’ll say good-bye to our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom classroom door, and begin decorating it for Fall.  We will be putting up an apple tree, and hanging our crosses underneath.  Stay tuned for more pictures!

We Didn’t Realize We Were Making Memories, We Were Just Having Fun!

We have started off the year in PE class with great participation! PreK-2nd grades have been learning balance and coordination using  balloons, beanbags, and hula hoops!

3rd -8th grade are learning warm-up skills and calisthenics, along with playing active fun games, like trash-ball and capture the flag.  They are working on teamwork and strategy!
