The things we can do in preschool

Today was our very first day in preschool and we started off the year by exploring the things we ‘can’ do in preschool…

During circle time, we passed around the can and each of us took a turn thinking of things we can do in preschool. Most of the children gave the same answer which was –  “I can paint!”:)  I will ask this question again later this week and see if they have any new answers to share…

We spent a big part of our day exploring our environment. There was much to see and much to learn about our new classroom but one thing is for sure, we discovered that we really can paint!

After painting with our cans, the children wanted to know if they could paint with paint brushes too. The children made observations:  “Look, the paint is turning brown!”

We also discovered that we can play in the water table…

And that we can get our own cups and napkins…

And that we can build tall towers…

And that we can make new friends…

And that we can make magnetic robots...

And that we can wiggle our toes…

And that we can cut and color…

And that we can climb up and down really big stairs…

And that we can play fun games…

In preschool, we can do so many things!!

This is going to be a great year!

      It has many possibilities and “can” be used throughout the school year as a followup to their progress too!

      I have a great group of children to work with. Very excited about what is to come!

    This post made me even more excited for our start – only three more weeks to go! I love this idea of getting the kids to think of what they “can” do in preschool – totally borrowing that!
