Ms. Patti and Ms. Meg's M-Th Knoch Knolls Pre-K

It's hard to believe October is almost over already.  We have been keeping busy learning about the letters P and H.  The weather has been good for going outside and we got to meet a snake!  Not to mention...it's almost Halloween!  It's fun to be in Pre-K!
We practiced a fire drill.  Next month a fire
truck will come visit us!
We explored with different materials to paint with.  We really got our hands dirty and painted our hands black to make a spider.  When it dried, we put the paper and a drop of paint in a box and created a spider web using marbles.  We shook the boxes until we had a crazy spider web for our spider to live on.  Using stickers the spider webs were complete and turned out great!
The paint brush tickles!

Making the web!

Adding the finishing touch!
We used rollers to paint
puzzle pieces.

And our hands...

We got to meet Flicker the snake!  Ms. Barb told us all about Flicker!  She even let everyone pet him.  And each child happily did!










We can make a long snake!

The children learn a lot by working/playing in small groups with a teacher.  It also gives the teacher a chance to challenge each child individually and it's fun for everyone!
