Preschool Raider Times

September 30, 2016

 

We introduced the letter “B” this week. The Four Year Old preschoolers made beautiful butterflies by tearing paper. This helps build their motor skills and muscles in their wrists and hands. Three Year Olds created the Nursery Rhyme, Baa Baa Black Sheep project and bumblebees. The goal of this project was to teach the preschoolers fine motor skills. The children had to rip the paper and place the yarn onto the paper piece by piece. We will continue to reinforce these skills throughout the year. You will see their improvement during the year and especially in their writing skills.

This week in Religion, we learned about St. Michael and the Arch Angels, St. Gabriel and St. Raphael. The feast day was Sept. 29. Also we celebrated the feast day of our Guardian Angels on Oct. 2. We learned how they are with us and keep us safe and are always with us.
