For the month of February we will be focusing on friendship in our Pre-K room. We started this week by reading the story “Penguin and Pinecone a Friendship Story” and making a Friendship Tree. We discussed how we can be kind to our friends and what kind words sound like. Each student decorated a heart and a teacher helped them write how they are a friend. All of our hearts are being displayed on a tree on a bulletin board in our room.
Our dramatic play centre this month is a Post Office where students can make and mail Valentine’s. We also have a cash register for students to pay to mail their Valentine’s. This is a fun, interactive way for students to practice their pre printing skills as well as language and communication skills.
- For Valentine’s Day this year we will be having a Pajama Day on Tuesday, February 13th for the T/TH class and Wednesday, February 14th for the M/W Class. We will be doing Valentine’s Day themed activities throughout the morning. If your child would like to send Valentine’s to give to their classmates we ask that you write To: Friend on every Valentine to make distribution easy. There are 18 children in the M/W class and 19 children in the T/TH class.
