There have been so many activities during the winter months! We had a visit from the Wilmette police and talked about safety. Specifically, the kids all learned to check first before going anywhere with anyone. We also set up a Chinese restaurant in the dramatic play center. We used props donated to us by a preschool family from their very own restaurant! We collaborated twice with the Marie Murphy middle school students and played Spanish Valentine BINGO and decorate masks for Mardi Gras. We studied the stories, The Mitten, and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Now we are looking forward to spring!
Happy Holidays everyone! In December we learned about holidays around the world. We baked gingerbread cookies, and celebrated the holidays with our family and friends.
During October, the Avoca Community Preschool hosted both the French and Spanish classes from Marie Murphy Junior high! The preschoolers learned some French words for farm animals and all about the Day of the Dead. Thank you, middle school! We also learned all about pumpkins and had a fun Halloween party thrown by our fabulous room parents. Here are some fun pictures from last month.
We had so much fun at our annual field trip to the pumpkin farm. Each child received a fun scavenger hunt and had to find things as they walked around the farm! We were able to see many animals at the petting zoo, ride a pony or a camel, slide down a very tall super slide and enjoy a hayride with our friends. There were also some awesome carnival rides!
