Preschool Press: Learning The Letter "I"

main image

“I is for Instrument” in preschool! Did you hear the melodious songs coming from the preschool hallway? The three year old classes studied the Letter “I” and experimented with instruments of all shapes, sizes and sounds. We practiced counting the beats, listening to directions to stop and start the music, used all of our muscles large and small to move with the instruments, and sang some glorious songs for all to enjoy.

Practicing pre-reading skills doesn’t have to be boring! Preschool is a fun and exceptional place to learn!

Preschool Press: Bears and the Letter "B"

main image

Our three-year-old preschool classes have been busy learning about the letter "B" and finished our week enjoying a teddy bear picnic with some special furry visitors.

Each week, our preschoolers are introduced to a different letter of the alphabet and we immerse ourselves in learning the sound and formation of the letter and finding the letter in our everyday lives. For "B" week, we strengthened our fine motor skills by using brushes to paint with blue paint, enhanced our large motor skills by keeping balloons in the air, ordered bears by size and color, pretended to hibernate in a big box and listened to many books about butterflies, bears and bugs. 

Preschool is a "beary" special place!
