Clifford will help us to learn the color RED. We will be welcoming FALL by learning about the changing seasons and discovering the beauty of AUTUMN. We enjoy getting outside – remember to dress for the cooler temperature. Meeting our 5th Grade Buddies will be the highlight of the week. In addition, the students will learn how we “Make a Plan” in preschool. When challenges occur, we use a stop light tool to help us manage our emotions- RED- Stop and recognize the problem YELLOW-Make a plan using our words and think of ways to fix it GREEN-We fixed our mistake, made and plan and are good to go Our LEARNING CENTERS for the week include: Clifford Activities, Puzzles, Red Play dough, Stop Light Activities, Triangle Activities, Apple Tasting and Dissecting, Fall Items, Red Easel Painting.

FRIDAY the 28th- 5th GRADE BUDDIES- We meet our buddies today. We will be sharing apples and doing a “get to know you” activity. From the start of the school year, the preschoolers begin getting to know the oldest students in our school. This helps ease their transition to a new part of the school building and makes them more comfortable being around the older students. In addition, the relationships they share strengthen and deepen throughout their remaining years at MMSA. In addition, we see the benefits as far as developing levels of comfort and good relationships. They will enjoy many activities throughout the year together. The 5th graders love having the chance to be a leader. They build friendships with the preschoolers and love to teach, read and talk with them.
