September was SUPER! The students worked on fine motor, spelling and writing our names, shapes, colors, and began Letter of the Week. We have had so much fun reading books, making crafts, enjoying our centers, and getting to know our friends even more. This month we also focused on GOODNESS by being "bucket fillers" to our friends. We are eager to move into October and get ready for PUMPKINS!
The preschoolers continue to be super busy and have so much fun as well explore and learn about our senses, apples,colors, shapes, and begin to tackle the alphabet. Next week, we will be celebrating the Archangels (September 29) and our Guardian Angel (October 2). Students are starting to learn our first prayer, the Guardian Angel Prayer. We are also working on the Sign of the Cross and how to genuflect.
Guardian Angel Prayer
Angel of God, my guardian dear
To whom God's love commits me here.
Ever this day, be at my side
To light and guard, to rule and guide.
What a great beginning to our school year. It has been such a joy to get to know my new students. They are a great and fun bunch. We have been busy already working on classroom manners, expectations, and routines in our classroom. We have also read some wonderful stories and made some great projects. We will be busy, busy, busy all year long! Please check back often as I will try to update with pictures and special happenings in our classroom. I will also always post our monthly newsletter!
