Okay the first week back has come and gone and I have to say it was the BEST FIRST WEEK EVER! Seriously, my class is awesome! No criers, no clingers, no accidents! WOW! I am very lucky that all of my kids are returning preschoolers-they were all in a 3 year old classroom last year, so they kinda have the whole school thing down. They all came in ready to go!!! We had a great week! We mostly focused on the normal first-week-back stuff-rules, procedures,introducing a few centers. We read The Kissing Hand of course. We talked about and charted First Day Feelings and made kissing hand hand prints. We talked about and charted things we can do at preschool and then they drew a picture and dictated. We talked about ways that we can be Safe, Respectful, and Responsible at school and added those sentences to our Pedro PBIS board. We played Beach Ball Buddies and Friend Bingo to help learn our friends' names. Whew we were really busy! We totally had a blast and I am soooo excited for the rest of the year with my sweet little SuperStars!!!! (okay I know that things can change in the blink of an eye, especially in Prek, but I gotta luv it while it's good!)
Soooo, here are a few pictures-actually I didn't get very many- I guess we were just sooooo busy I forgot to grab the camera!! But I did manage to get a few. (I promise I will get better with my camera-this is something I always have to remind myself with. I usually put my fabulous associate, Tammy, in charge of the picture taking-she better get right on that-HA!)
|We discussed the different things that we could do at school and then did a predictable chart. Then they drew a picture and dictated. I actually saw something similar to this on Pinterest-HELLO I LOVE PINTEREST!!|
Okay I guess I didn't get many pictures at all. Sorry! Next week we are doing Chicka Chicka Boom Boom! Can't wait!
