Hello August, and happy summer~
This month, North Preschool will be a bunch of happy campers (literally)! We will have a camping unit in the classroom. On our practical life shelf there will be carabiner fastening, camp dish cleaning, and a water filtering work.
At circle, we will sing songs about camping and the outdoors. We will talk about ways to keep ourselves safe when camping and the importance of leaving a clean campsite. During circle will also be a fun time to pretend there is a campfire and tell some stories!
Because we are reaching the end of the summer and preparing for a new school year, we will be doing a lot of cleaning! We will devote one day to dusting the shelves, another to cleaning chairs, etc. August is always a fun month to sneak in the last bits of summer!
