P is for Parrot!

This week my students were introduced to the letter P.  We learned that p is for parrot...

...patterning paddies...

...purple paint...

...potting plants...

...and popping popcorn!

We also prepared for St. Patrick's Day this week.  Obviously, this student was thrilled to have her hands painted orange for the occasion. 

To help get into the spirit, we dyed rice to make a rainbow sensory bin...

...and made green, sparkly playdough.  Despite a run through the wash, a few pre-k students at St. Rose of Lima preschool (see the entry below about my visit) pointed out that that my Dockers still had green glitter stuck to them.

Ms. Rebecca and Miss Kim's class also prepared for St. Patrick's Day by creating their shamrock hats!

They're astonishingly beautiful!  The hats, too.

Today our Sacred Heart Preschool was closed while we teachers partook in a staff development day.  We each dispersed across the county and visited different preschool sites to observe how other classrooms operate.  I visited St. Rose of Lima in Chula Vista and had a wonderful time getting to know their preschool director and pre-k teacher.  I also adored their students and learned so much!  This was definitely an opportunity to gain knowledge through fellow colleagues!

We want the best for your Sacred Heart children!
