Week of the Young Child
During the week of April 24-28, 2017, COMO preschool students participated in this year's Week of the Young Child. This annual celebration, hosted by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) promotes early learning and celebrates young children, their families and their teachers. Each day brought it's own fun and discovery as students participated in sensory learning experiences!
Preschool students engaged in experiential learning, performing activities that coordinated with each day's theme. Music Monday was all about expressing themselves through musical instruments and having fun with song! Tasty Tuesday found the preschoolers in the kitchen preparing their own delicious salsa as they learned about vegetables. Preschool declared the salsa to be especially yummy and "not spicy." Students worked collaboratively on various projects on Work Together Wednesday - from coloring to building, the day was ultimately about celebrating friendship! Artsy Thursday was all about sensory art projects that encouraged the kids to express themselves creatively. Finally, Family Friday was a day of sharing what makes all of our families so fantastic - including our COMO Preschool family!
