To end the month of January we had another week of fun winter learning! We enjoyed lots of time outside playing, completed a snowman and snowflake craft and read stories, sang songs and said poems all about snowmen and snowflakes! I have linked below the two stories we read about snowmen this week.
We developed our fine motor skills this week through our two crafts. We were excited to finish our marshmallow snowmen and get to take them home. We also made snowflakes by beading on pipe cleaners.
Below is a new poem that we have been reciting. Have your child show you the actions and make sure they are counting down on their fingers!
Everyone was excited to discover a new dramatic play center on Wednesday and Thursday this week. We now have a vet clinic in our classroom. Students can play the roles of veterinarian, receptionist and pet owner. Ask your child what their favourite part of the vet clinic is!

Valentine’s Day Activities in Pre-K:
We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day in Pre-K on Wednesday, February 12th for the M/W Class and Thursday, February 13th for the T/TH 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 there are 16 children in the M/W class and 20 children in the T/TH class. Please address Valentine’s To: Friend to make distribution easy. For snack on our Valentine’s Special Day we are going to make a “Friendship salad”. If you could send a small container of a fruit of your choice, we are going to combine everyone’s to make a fruit salad that we all get to share. Please also send what you would normally send your child for snack!
