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 littles. I am constantly amazed at how they share the love
of Christ with each other. What a blessing they are!
Our month-long investigation of “Things that Go” has had us discovering the difference between items that roll and items that slide/bounce when we toss them. We illustrated cars, created our own tube launchers, and explored how different items could be used as wheels. We have great ideas and demonstrated we could do challenging things!
We have also worked hard this month learning how to make words rhyme at the end (traditional rhyming) and at the beginning (alliteration). We enjoyed nursery rhymes, Silly Sally and playing the “Name Game” together. If you see a preschooler, enjoy some rhyme time together!
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 illustrated by posing for pictures. We had a great time showing empty--full, dirty--clean, near--far, etc!
This Lenten season we focused on different miracles of Jesus. We learned that Jesus is our good shepherd and how He cares for each and every one of us! The end of March we also learned how Jesus could wash us anew. We learned how he washed the disciples' feet and how Jesus wants us to be servants, too. We dirtied our feet by walking in paint and worked to scrub them clean. We discovered we couldn’t get them completely clean. We needed something bigger and better to wash with just as when we sin. Jesus is bigger and better than any sin–he died so we could be washed clean in Him! Amazing Love!
Prayers from Preschool!
