News from Good Beginnings Preschool

Posted March 19th, 2018

In March the Prekindergarten Class took a field trip to the McPherson College Sports Center where college students under the direction of Professor John Hoffman were their teachers. The children enjoyed familiar activities like doing a somersault and walking on a low balance beam and new activities like ladder ball, using a racket to hit a balloon, and working together to move a giant parachute! Another highlight was doing yoga with Miss Kelli Dosset. The children tried many poses including cat, cow, dog, butterfly, snake, flower, and plow. Both of these experiences helped the children find new ways to use and control their bodies.

The Younger Class made cloud and sun puppets to report the weather. The dentist was rescheduled for March and the children learned which foods/drinks are good and bad for their teeth. Each child had a turn to help brush Alex the Dragon’s teeth.

Both classes made Easter baskets and will be celebrating Easter with their friends.

The Prekindergarten Class is looking forward to gluing a windsock and painting a kite in April. Lindsey Friesen from the McPherson County Extension Office will teach the children about plants and help them plant seeds. Books that will guide the children’s learning are My Spring Robin; Going on a Nature Hunt; Up, Down, and Around (the way seeds grow); Mrs. McNosh and the Great Big Squash; and the old favorite The Carrot Seed.

We hope you have a wonderful Easter with family and friends. We appreciate being part of the Church of the Brethren family!
