Happy New Year! During the month of January, the preschool students learned about Ringing in the New Year, National Bird Day, Ice and Snow, Polar Animals, and Chinese New Year. Each of our little ones have learned so much through our hands-on learning activities.
Nursery/Infant Daycare Classes
Our Nursery school class with Ms. Jazmine has been extra busy this month. The babies have been achieving developmental milestones including sitting up, holding their own bottles, and saying their first words; we can’t wait to watch them achieve even more in the coming days!
Transitional Preschool Classes
The Transitional classrooms with Mrs. Erin and Mrs. Kavitha worked on their fine motor skills and practiced their cutting skills with scissors. They cut along different types of lines, such as a straight lines and zigzag lines.
Preschool Classes Outdoor Learning
Our 3B preschool class with Ms. Angie went outside to search for items in nature to create their own birds nest. They always enjoy being able to incorporate nature into the curriculum and putting their imaginations to use! Our ¾ A class led by Mrs. Melanie and Mrs. Lisa participated in an activity to help “rescue” frozen arctic animals by adding water to ice to help thaw the ice and set the plastic animals free.
Preschool Teacher Mrs. Pilar
We have so many fantastic teachers in the Preschool. This month we are highlighting, Mrs. Pilar. She teachers Spanish class to all children from Infants through 3/4. Each class she and the children sing songs and do activities that focus on learning Spanish names for numbers, shapes, colors, and much more.
Be sure to ask your little one what they learned this week! We are so excited for more fun to come and are looking forward to seeing all of our families at the PA Family Valentines Dance February, 8th at the Polo Fields. The dance features great food, a DJ, auction items and best of all, teachers and friends from McGinnis Woods!
