We started off the week with a field trip to Yili Park. Thanks to all the parents that joined us! We had a great time snacking, playing, and running. It was a great trip to explore our neighborhood together. This field trip helped us understand our central idea, “Our Neighborhood is made of places and people and the tools they use.”
Field Trip Reflections
We reflected on the field trip by gluing pictures on the paper and then drawing representations of our experiences. Our circle time students were asked, “How did you feel at the park?” Everyone felt happy and silly for our field trip!
We started learning about Doctors in our neighborhood this week. The students have been exploring the different tools and role-playing the doctor’s office.
We also sang the song, “When I Build My House” throughout the week and used tools that we made as props.
We’ve been talking a lot about bakers in our Neighborhood and how our food is made. We made sugar cookies and biscuits this week. Nursery students develop so many skills when they bake! Here are just a few:
- Social Emotional: Delaying gratification and self-control by waiting for turns.
- Math- counting, comparing and measuring sizes, sequencing
- Language- learning new vocabulary, listening and following directions, and asking for turns.
- Cognitive: Making connections! Today we discovered that we used some of the same ingredients to make cookies as we did to make biscuits. We are also increasing our attention span as we wait and participate in the whole baking process start to finish.

Field Day is coming up! On June 8th, students will participate in a school-wide field day. Field Day is 9am-11am and students will participate in multiple games (some wet!) and activities in and around building B. Our team color is YELLOW. Please help your child wear yellow on June 8th. We are still looking for a few volunteers. Please sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d45afa92eabfc1-nurserypreschool1
I’m also looking for one parent to come on the day of the event and help our class travel to and from activities as well as take pictures. Please let me know if you are interested.
If you would like to schedule an end of the meeting to discuss your child’s progress this year and their upcoming transition to preschool please let me know and we can arrange a time.
