As part of Catholic Schools Week, Epiphany does a bulletin board contest! The class with the most "likes" on Facebook wins an ice cream party! This year's theme was "Faith to move mountains." Help us try and win some ice cream! Please click on this link, and follow it to the "Preschool 2" bulletin board and give it a like. Feel free to share it as well!!
In honor of Career Day, we all discussed/wrote about what we want to be when we grow up! These preschoolers are our future. Dream big, little ones!
We also had a special guest come speak to us today! Officer Ruehl, who works for the Chicago Police Department, came and spoke to us about what police officers do. He even let us try on some of his gear! What a fun day.
What a wonderful morning we had enjoying breakfast with our families and friends! Thank you to all the families who were kind enough to donate food for the breakfast, as well as the families who were able to come eat with us! We appreciate everything you do for us and our school. We also had a special guest reader, Mr. Tom Zbierski from the Big Shoulders Fund, come read to our class! Thank you Mr. Z for spending time with us today. :)
We were so cozy in our pajamas today! Also, since tomorrow is our special Family breakfast, we spent the morning working together with the other preschool class to make a table cloth. Along with pajama day, it was also student appreciation day! Each of these preschoolers received an "Elephant and Piggie" book to take home. I love these kiddos!! What a great start to Catholic Schools Week.
Since it snowed this week and we are learning all about colors, we painted some snow! We used water and colored it with food coloring, and used paint brushes to paint it onto the snow! We talked about how certain colors mixed together to make new colors. We also felt the snow with our hands and observed how snow melts into water. Talk about some winter fun!!
We started our new unit this week on "The World of Color!" Today, we did a science experiment using construction paper and sunlight! By sticking a sticky note onto construction paper and hanging it on our window, we predicted that the sunlight would make our paper change colors! We will be checking our paper for daily updates in the upcoming weeks. :)
Since Monday is MLK day, today at school we learned about who Martin Luther King Jr was and his impact on our nation's history. We watched a "Kid President" video about MLK, and then we did an "egg-speriment" about equality! We cracked open a brown egg and a white egg to find that despite their outside appearances, they were the same on the inside! We also did some Martin Luther King Jr coloring pages.
