Miss Lori’s 3/11/2021 Red Robin Preschool Newsletter
This week we moved on to the letter “Ss”. Some of the children made a “Silly Scarecrow” puppet and some children made a “Squirrel” for their Alphabet Book. We have so many super “Ss” pictures up on the board. We also know that the month of “September” begins with an “Ss”, the seasons of “Spring” and “Summer” begin with an “Ss” and two types of weather begin with an “Ss” – “sunny” and “snowy”.
Speaking of weather, we have been reading many books about Clouds, Volcanoes and the Earth. All of the children are fascinated to learn about weather! When we go outside, all of us have been observing the four different types of clouds we have learned about. They are 1) cirrus, 2) cumulus, 3) cumulonimbus and 4) stratus. The children have learned that both the “cirrus” and “cumulus” clouds bring sunny weather, while the “cumulonimbus” clouds bring thunderstorms and tornadoes while “stratus” clouds bring rain or snow depending upon the temperature outside. Our class loved the book It Looked Like Spilt Milk by Charles Shaw and Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs by Judi Barrett. All of the boys and girls made a “cloud” using white paint on a piece of paper, folding the paper in half, rubbing it and then opening it up to see what their “Cloud” looks like. We saw so many “cows”, “robots” and “dogs” in the sky this week as we looked up to observe the clouds! We will be making our version of a tornado using baking soda, vinegar, dish soap, food coloring and a soda bottle! We can’t wait to watch the volcano “erupt”. Your children have learned some vocabulary words such as “crater”, “lava”, “erupt”, “magma”, “dormant” and “active” when we discuss volcanoes.
What an exciting, fun week we have had! We have been enjoying the spring-like weather! Your children will tell you March has been behaving “like a lamb” this week, and we are all very happy about that!
Next week we will move on to the letter “Tt”. In honor of the letter “Tt” we are hoping to have a visit from Miss Tallulah T. Potts. She is coming from the royal castle to have a tea party with us! She will teach us the proper way to eat and drink at a tea party! We will also be on the lookout for a little man called a leprechaun next week. We heard he is usually around the school on or near March 17th. We are hoping he leaves us treats not tricks!
Have a “STUPENDOUS” weekend!
