Preschool for the week of October 19-23

This week we will learn about Camouflage Bugs. Camouflage bugs have unique features that help them survive. While we learn about the different features of bugs, we will also also talk about how each of us our different and unique. We will learn the letter Nn and words that start with the letter Nn. We will finish up our Baby Shark pumpkins(each daycare had to pick a theme) for the Pumpkin Decorating Contest put on by American Family Insurance! This year, they are doing things a little differently. Instead of taking all of the pumpkins to the office for display, we will take a group picture of the kiddos with their pumpkins and send it to them. They will draw a winner and the daycare/child care center who wins will receive a pizza party! I believe all of the pictures will be displayed on American Family’s FB page. Our pumpkins are going to be ADORABLE!!!
