Preschool Week of 11/5

A few pics from this week...
There was Halloween:
More Halloween:
And more Halloween:
And we went to see a Russian opera, The Legend of Rusalka, which is a version of the Little Mermaid. It was 45 minutes and a perfect introduction to opera for children. Both of the children we went with loved it!

We completed a geography unit on Mexico. You can read about that here.
We read a couple of good science stories:
Where's My Tail? by Susan Schafer is a cute story about a lizard who loses his tail. He finds out about the reasons other animals do or don't have tails, and he learns that his tail will grow back.
Tracks of a Panda by Nick Dawson is a story which follows a baby panda's through his early months of life. This book has beautiful illustrations and we learned a lot about pandas.
We started on L blends in Progressive Phonics. And we played!

  1. I love your pirate pumpkin, and Crumpet looks great in his Star Wars costume. I have never heard of this opera (of course I heard about Rusalka :)) - I have to check it out!
