Message from your teachers!
Welcome to this week’s newsletter! We hope you have been enjoying these learning activities with your preschoolers. Your teachers have been working hard on reopening plans and setting up classrooms, and we are especially grateful for your understanding and patience as we go through these plans! We will keep you updated on further plans and hope you and your families are all doing well and staying safe. It’s getting cold, too, so do your best to keep warm!

Our four program-wide expectations are Be Compassionate, Be Curious, Be A Community and Be Courageous. This week we will focus on how children can Be Curious.
We are Curious when we:
- Explore new ideas
- Ask “I Wonder” questions
- Imagine the possibilities
- Test our ideas
- Value the challenge
In this week’s learning resource, you’ll find an activity related to this week’s expectation. Let us know how it went!
Movement / Play
Did you know there are 5 ways to learn about things?? They’re called the 5 senses! The 5 senses are Seeing, Smelling, Hearing, Touching and Tasting!
The next time you are playing outside, or at the store, you can use some of these senses to explore your curiosity. For example, if you are at the store, you can SEE all the different foods they have! Can you name the colors you SEE?
If you’re at home, you can TASTE the food you eat with your family! Does the food taste sweet, salty or something else?
Take some time with your family to Be Curious about the different things you can smell and hear and touch, too! You can talk about them, draw pictures, or even make up a song to sing about them!
Math / Science
Nature Sounds Scavenger Hunt
Spend time outside listening for these sounds together!
Language / Literacy
Gorilla, Be Good!
Click this link to read along with Teacher Lisa about the letter G. What sound do you hear from the letter G? What words and pictures in the story have that G-sound? Ask me for the password! https://vimeo.com/447295570
Math / Science
Link it up to 10!
If you have plastic color links at home, connect 10 of them together! Can you count them one by one? What about two by two (a good challenge for the older PreK kids!)? If you do not have the color links, you could line up toys, socks, or any small object up to 10!
Art / Writing
Using paper and crayons (or markers), draw some shapes with your child. They can practice the lines and coloring them in! They can even make different patterns when coloring the shapes!
