Hello, One and All! TLS preschoolers have been busy learning and playing this past March. It was so nice to meet with all of the preschool families to share how much each child has grown not only in academics and socially but in Faith! We have a room full of compassionate, service-oriented youngsters. I am constantly amazed at how they share the love of Christ with each other. What a blessing they are!
We have worked hard this month learning how to make words rhyme at the end (traditional rhyming) and at the beginning (alliteration). We enjoyed nursery rhymes, Dr. Suess books and playing the “Name Game” together. If you see a preschooler, enjoy some rhyme time together!
Dinosaurs stomped their way into our room as we spent time investigating dinosaur bones, fossils, and creating our own Jurassic play world. We weighed, measured, and magnified bones and fossils then tried to match items to pictured dinosaurs. We discovered some amazing facts about the size of dinosaur teeth, their feet, sounds and why they came in different shapes and sizes (that’s how God made them!).
Long-short, heavy-light, fast-slow, opposites we now know! We were new to the term (opposite) but now it is a term we use with ease. We even created our own opposite book that students had taken pictures for illustrations. We had a great time showing empty--full, dirty--clean, near--far!
This Lenten season we focused on how Jesus could wash us anew. We learned how he washed the disciples' feet and how Jesus wants us to be servants, too. We washed the feet of dolls and talked about how sad Jesus must have felt when his friend, Judas, betrayed him. We would have been very sad but we rejoice in the gift Christ has given us by dying on the cross to forgive all our sins! We sing Hallelujah, Christ has risen from the dead! Happy Easter!
