We are off to a great start in the new year! Over the winter break we have grown in so many ways. Children are excited to experience the snowy ground and to learn about animals in winter. We have been busy making bird feeders as well as exploring the various senses we can use to learn about our winter environment.
Over the past several weeks we have been learning about what it means to be a community helper. We started talking about our own classroom community where we each have an important role in the class. We then made a list of people in our Leverett Community who are helpers. This list included firefighters, doctors, nurses, construction workers, bakers, artists, safety dogs, etc. We were able to visit the Leverett Safety Complex and to have a tour of the firetrucks and learn about fire safety. We also got to see a snow plow and a front loader up close. Thank you to Deanna and Kevin Shaw for coming in and sharing the work that you both do as community helpers.
We’re off to a great start this year! We have spent the first few weeks of school getting to know each other. Learning about the different centers in our room, we are beginning to move around the classroom more independently. Here are a few snapshots of preschool life so far. We hope you enjoy them.
Over the next several months the preschool blog will highlight preschool life here at LES. We hope you will enjoy seeing us hard at work and play.
Your comments, as always, are appreciated.

Winter is well underway and our study of winter is coming to completion. Beginning this Friday, February 5th, we kickoff our unit on Transportation. In preschool we aim to design curriculum based on children’s interest as well as meet the Massachusetts Frameworks for our grade. There has been a high interest in cars, trucks, planes and boats and we look forward to learning about these various modes of transportation.
January progress reports have gone out and I hope that if you have any questions that you will contact me to discuss them. Looking forward to the weeks ahead !
