Preschool 1 (February 13th-17th)

Among the many professions, or Jobs That People Do, that we discussed, in the week of February 13-17, included: ballet dancers, chimney sweepers, restaurant workers (waiters, waitresses, doorpersons), people who deliver mail, nurses, doctors, and veterinary doctors.  We examined different tools and equipment that may be used in the doctor’s office or hospital including: a stethoscope, bandages, medicine, syringe, vile, thermometer, rubber gloves, rubbing alcohol wipes, masks, tongue presser, tweezers, mirror and other hand held tools.

The children continued their maths skills by sorting different objects and matching them to the correct digits.  We have continued to review our shapes: circle, triangle, rectangle and square, and have now also introduced the oval!

During this week we have also enjoyed a whimsical field trip to DzeguÅūkalns for sledging!  The weather was comfortable with not one gust of wind.  The snow was soft, fluffy and light and the children were energetic and real risk-takers!  It was absolutely PERFECT!

Next week there will be no classes due to the ski break (February 20-24), however, upon our return on February 27th we will already begin our next Unit of Inquiry: Here, Kitty, Kitty! 
Wishing all of you a safe and enjoyable holiday!
