Since we do not have a graduation ceremony or anything fancy when we finish our Pre-K year, we have started a tradition of putting on THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH…the Pre-K circus. This year will be our 17th year (we think!) of putting on the show and every year it gets bigger and more involved. Each of the children will have a part in the show and it is just another way to use our listening ears, social skills, large motor, music abilities and more to show everyone what we have been doing and learning here at school. We start our circus practice at least 3 weeks ahead of the BIG day. This gives each of the children plenty of time to learn their parts and be comfortable with what they will be doing. It’s a fun activity that brings us all together before we start our summer of fun. Please let us know if you will be coming as everyone is invited!
We continue to work on the skill of “Deciding How Someone Feels”. This has been a challenging skill for some of the boys and girls. We need them to stop more, look at the peer they are talking to, disagreeing with, or just the one they are with. We remind the child to look at someone’s face and also their body language (arms crossed, back turned, head down, etc.). We are going to continue this skill until the class is understanding that others have feelings too and we need to respect that. Talking about our feelings is okay and should be done to help us feel better and let others know what is going on with us.
