ECC Weekly News - 1/31/2020
Early Learners - Catholic Schools Week was so fun. The children loved all the cute activities and special days we planned for them. This week we still have been talking about snow. We made our own playdough and added silver glitter to make it look like snowflakes, after reading Snowballs by Lois Ehlert we talked about why snow melts and made "melted" snowmen. We had a special visit from Sara a librarian from the Milton Public Library. She talked about what the library has to offer and read us some stories.
Preschool 1, 2 & 3 enjoyed a very exciting Catholic Schools Week. We had a blast making crazy hats, wearing our pjs to school, having crazy hair and even had a picnic in Preschool 2 to enjoy movie day! We are always doing such fun activities with our friends at St. Mary's!!
Preschool 4 - Catholic Schools Week was a lot of fun. The children looked adorable in their pajamas and loved showing off their crazy hats and hair. The preschoolers especially enjoyed Wacky Wednesday. After reading the book, Wacky Wednesday, by Dr. Seuss, the children discovered some pretty wacky things going on right in our very own classroom. They found a pull up on the vacuum cleaner, a penguin drinking out of a straw, a spoon stuck to the wall and even a baby reading a newspaper. Story time with Miss Sara from Milton Public Library was a great way to end the week.
Pre-K 1 worked on adding and subtracting this week. They enjoyed using the counting farm animals to solve their math problems. They also worked on putting together puzzles. Puzzles are one of their favorite centers to play in. It was a great week with lots of hands on learning!
Pre K 2 children were very busy during Catholic School Week. The kids really enjoyed their extra recess time they were giving as a special treat. We learned a fun new game 4 Corners while playing outside on the playground. We even got to watch a movie this week. Their favorite day was Board Game Day. They loved bringing in special board games from home to share and play with their friends.
