We just finished up our getting to know you and on the farm units. We learned the names of different farm animals and practiced signing the names for the animals. We have also been practicing recognizing our written names and remembering the first letter of our names.
We are now entering our We Love Food unit where we will be introducing new food vocab words and food categories! With fall now among us, we will be talking about the changing season and different colors we see outside.

time to do it! We appreciate phone calls regarding your child’s illness and absence from preschool.

Monthly Teacher Tip
For the picky eater…
Many preschoolers are hesitant to try new foods. Here are some tips to help your preschooler try new foods!
Offer new foods many times. It may take up to a dozen tries for a child to accept a new food.
Be a good role model by trying new foods yourself. Describe its taste, texture, and smell.
Offer new foods first, at the beginning of a meal, when your child is the hungriest.
Offer only one new food at a time. Serve something that you know your child likes along with the new food. www.choosemyplate.gov
