We started the week by reading lots of Easter stories including many about Easter eggs. Since we’re learning about authors during the month of March, we pointed out the author and illustrator of the stories we read so the children could continue that focus as well. When you’re reading together at home, take a second to point out who the author and illustrator are of the books you read.
We noticed how different each egg in the stories was and then made our own colorful Easter eggs. The Pre-K students got to draw their own individual egg shape, trace it in marker, decorate their egg, and then cut it out. They were very proud of their eggs! The 3’s enjoyed gluing on the colorful papers to decorate their eggs and seeing what they looked like once they were cut out!
Legos are also a big hit at the preschool! Building with Legos has a number of benefits for preschoolers including increasing critical thinking, creativity, communication and problem solving skills.
We also learned the letter “B” this week. We’re almost finished with all the letters! We’ve started writing down consonant-vowel-consonant words like bat, bag, etc. on the board to encourage reading skills too.
