From Our Preschool
The New Year has brought new and exciting adventures in the Fish class. We are taking on new responsibilities with some new classroom jobs. The students are very eager to find out what their job is for the day. We have been learning about winter, snow and polar animals. We even painted with ice–what a cool experience that was! We also began trying to draw pictures of ourselves. So proud of how well our Fish friends worked drawing their circle faces and adding their facial features. We have so much fun exploring and learning new things in the Fish class.
