Welcome back to preschool! This week the children have been getting reacquainted with their classroom, materials and most importantly their friends. The children have been busy with Legos, magna-tiles and drawing. They have been riding bikes and pretending to do a countdown for New Years while throwing leaves in the air as confetti!

This week, both preschool classrooms had a virtual visit from the one and only Santa Claus! The children were so excited able to see and talk to Santa through Zoom. We had a lot of questions to ask him:
"Do you like to eat cookies?" - Elias
"Are we getting presents? - Blake
"How do you deliver presents to kids who don't have a chimney?" - Hudson
Santa assured us that he had a special book that explained where to leave the presents if there isn't a chimney in our home. He told us that he likes cookies, but makes sure he also eats a balanced diet. Then he told the children that he was proud of them for being so friendly, kind, and patient this entire year. What a special way to celebrate the holiday season at school!

The children have been busy working away preparing Christmas decorations for the classroom and for their home. These activities include painting, using glue and glitter and cutting! This helps the children develop their fine motor skills, visual art skills and their language skills as they discuss Christmas decorations they have at home.
