First two Weeks of Preschool

Outside Time

This week we just played! Getting to know the rules of the backyard:)

006

Small Group

We focused on the basics this week; cutting, gluing, name writing, play-doh, and learning to use the art caddy. All of these things are available everyday during work time so I wanted to make sure that they knew how to use them.

Here, the children cut strips of paper between the stickers or dot paints.014

The next day we glued the cut pieces on to paper to learn to use the glue sticks.002

we learned how to get down the play doh and put it away properly.
