Dear XDC Families,
This week students in XDC have been making St. Patrick’s Day crafts. Some of the students’ favorite projects from last week were; a “green-jello cooking project, painting “shamrocks” and a “Leprechaun treasure-hunt.”
Morning XDC Pre-K News!
March 13th– 17th
Happy Monday and the letter T week! Hopefully you enjoyed a restful day off on Friday. Preschool teachers attended an informative workshop on Literacy Development and I’m looking forward to incorporating some of what was taught into our day.
Your children are so naturally curious and often inspire me to expose them to places, concepts, or instruction not on the “scheduled” plan. Last week was an example! Many of you may have heard about our Mount Rushmore project. A few of the children were looking at a book from our library that included several national monuments. They were so intrigued by Mt. Rushmore we made a mold of the monument, and learned about the presidents who adorn it, how long it took to complete, and several more facts. I encourage you to check it out and apologize to those of you who are being forced to plan your next family vacation there! (Although I highly encourage it!)
Last week we did not finish the lifecycle of a Ladybug science unit, so beginning Monday we will start this.
Math centers will include writing numbers, counting and measuring with shamrocks.
We will learn about St. Patrick, and of course incorporate some fun art projects!
As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns.
Have a wonderful week!
