We have had a wonderful and exciting first few days in our new Prepper classes. Our older friends have done a great job being leaders in the classroom and role models for our new, younger friends. We have worked on learning everyone’s names, learning the rules of our class, as well as becoming more independent. We had a great time exploring centers, cutting loose on the big playground, and shaking our wiggles out by dancing to some new fun songs.

We are working on shape recognition, recognizing our written name, and counting the letters of our name. We also had our first Handwriting Without Tears lesson. We learn to construct the human form to practice spacial awareness and perspective by drawing self portraits and by constructing “Mat Man.” He is our favorite way to become familiar with line structure and shape.
