Winter Greetings from the Pre-Primary Class

What a wonderful fall we’ve had together! Over the past few months we have accomplished so much. During September we studied the world with our “My Passport” theme. In October, we focused on “Plants and Harvest,” and in November we learned about “Community Helpers.” During our Community Helper theme, one of our parents came to our classroom and taught us about firefighters. We had the chance to learn about firefighters and what they wear. We also played a game where we practiced crawling under the smoke. Thank you for sharing your expertise with our class! Our classroom is always open to parents or family members who would like to come and share their talents, occupations, or even to join us to read a book.

We are starting off Winter with December’s theme, “Art Explorers.” We will spend time focusing on different mediums, learning about them as well as making art with them. We will explore color theory and begin learning about mixing colors. We will also spend time learning about different artists. January’s theme is “Space” and February’s theme is “Black History Month.” I look forward to creating hands-on lessons for these terrific themes!
