PRE-PRIMARY – MS. FLORA’S CLASS
Back to School
Summer Recap: During the month of July, we began our summer program by celebrating the 4th of July! The children were so excited to see the bright and beautiful fireworks! We made fireworks for craft. Our theme for the first two weeks was Underwater Adventure, we made octopus and talked about creatures that live in the ocean. The children even pretended they were sea animals and we swam across the room.
For our Montessori jobs the children were introduced to new craft jobs with lots of colors. Since summer is here, we have been participating in more outdoor activities that include water. The children love bubble day, water play and the water slide. We also take time to water our garden. The plants are growing so fast right before our eyes!
August was a hot month. Our students enjoyed the hot summer. During this month we had a bubble show. They were excited to see the giant bubbles. Some of the children were able to step inside of the bubble house. It was a great experience! The students received a visit from the Alhambra Fire Department. The firefighters taught us how to stay safe and what to do if there is a fire. They were able to put the fire uniform on. The uniform was heavy. We are so proud of the bravery and strength of the firemen.
The theme for two weeks in August was farm. The children had so much fun singing songs, reading stories and making crafts related to farm animals. Their favorite was making a lamb during craft time. We practiced animal sounds as we prepared our project.
September Recap: September is the beginning of the school year. It is a time for new beginnings, new experiences and new friends. The theme in September will be, All About Me. Please submit a new family photo so we can add it to our family wall. We will also go over the family tree. The children will be able to share who is in their family and begin to understand family dynamics. We will also prepare for Back to School Night. Parents will be able to view Montessori presentations and displays, learn more about the upcoming school year and fun events!
