Parents; here are the calendars for February. I attached an interesting article on helping your child deal with disappointments. Preschoolers are starting to learn that the world doesn’t revolve around them and that sometimes the answer is just no. This article has some wonderful ideas to help them deal with the frustration of disappointments. I hope your child has been sharing what they have learned this month about children around the world.
Today we learned about Egypt. We learned about the pyramids and some of the famous sites in Egypt. We dressed up like mummies. So much fun!
Today we took a trip to Venice Italy. We rode in a Gondola and watched artists blow beautiful glass pitchers.
Today we conducted an experiment that Galileo Galilei performed in 1589.
We dropped two different sizes of balls from the Leaning Tower of Pisa. We discovered that the balls fell at the same speed, despite their size.
Parents our field trip on Wednesday is to Rifle City Hall. We will be leaving the preschool at 9:00 for the morning class and 1:00. for the afternoon class. The Thursday children will join the Wednesday children for the field trip. Thursday children please show up at 8:45 for the morning class and 12:45 for the afternoon class. I also will need parent volunteers for driving and supervision.
Also, beginning this week, I will start providing the drinks for preschool so you will not need to provide a drink. Please make sure that you bring two different food groups, I.e. one item that is from the grain group and one item that is from the dairy group or fruit group or protein group or vegie group. Thanks so much.
