Preschool Weekly Note

Dear Families,

The story just gets curiouser and curiouser! Preschoolers followed Alice as she encountered the grumpy caterpillar, sitting atop a mushroom and inquiring, “What size do you want to be?” One side of the mushroom made her smaller and one side made her tall. Alice is faced with a true dilemma of opposites, which led the Adventurers and Wonderers into a lengthy discussion about opposites. Each child made a drawing in both small and large scales, choosing such subjects as a house, a family or an animal. All of the preschoolers made their own caterpillars, using pompoms and either clothespins or popsicle sticks. The Trailblazers and Explorers used their Thursday project time to make a larger-than-life caterpillar and mushroom, now suspended from the classroom ceiling. Snack time consisted of a caterpillar fruit skewer and a taste of a portobello mushroom. Ask your child if they grew taller or became shorter after tasting the mushroom.

Congratulations to the Lee family in Preschool B. They welcomed their brand- new daughter into the world on Wednesday, and we are thrilled they have named her Alice!
