Preschool 1 Week

Week 3

Hello Families,

We had so much fun learning all about apples this week! We learned two new apple songs – Way Up High in the Apple Tree and Put Your Apple in the Air. Ask your child to sing them to you! We also read lots of fun books about apples including Ten Apples Up on Top by Theo LeSieg and Apple Farmer Annie by Monica Wellington. 

During Circle Time we talked about all the different types of ways we like to eat apples – applesauce and apple pie were the favorites! We had an apple taste test using red, yellow and green apples. Ask your child which one they liked the best. We did a fun science experiment to see if apples sink or float. Ask your child what happened! And we even made our own applesauce in PS1! Ask your child how we made it. What ingredients did we use? Did they like the applesauce?

Your children really enjoyed playing with playdough, rolling it out and cutting out apples with our cookie cutters. We made lots of yummy “apple soup” in the water table and tuned up our fine motor skills using tongs to fill baskets with mini apples at the sensory table.

We rounded out the week with a visit from Miss Elaine! We had a blast tapping out the beat with our rhythm sticks and sang all about apples and farm animals. We are looking forward to lots of fun farm time in PS1 next week!

Have a great weekend!
