We had a great year!
I missed my classes more than I expected to over the break! It was so nice to see their little, smiling faces on Monday morning. We had a great day and a fun discussion about what they did when there was no school.
See the pictures below for some of the things we did in December. I am noticing a lack of gingerbread man pictures. We did so many things around the many different versions of this great story. I bet your preschooler can fill you in. At very least they will be able to chant "Run, run, as fast as you can! You can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man!'
January includes one of my favorite activities of the entire year, ICE CASTLES!!
Monday, January 25 will be our ice castle day. If you have time to freeze many different shapes and sizes of ice in your home freezer and bring them in Monday morning for us to use it would be a wonderful addition to our creations! In the past people have brought spheres (freeze water inside balloons), bundt cake shapes, stars, snowmen, rectangles, etc. It is an effective way to connect home and school.
We use table salt to "glue" the pieces together and rock salt to make tunnels and designs then add liquid water colors. It is an amazing day! (see pictures below)
January 27 we meet at Dillow's ATA at 11:00 a.m. No regular preschool that day.
We will be studying penguins, snow, snowmen, snow globes, ice and anything else that the preschoolers find interesting this month. Letter's P, D, B, and R will be our focus this month.
Thank you for all the very sweet gifts, cards, and family letters I received last month. Your support and encouragement is greatly appreciated!
