November is a special month at BCNS! We get to learn all about community helpers and transportation – a very favorite theme for preschool-aged children. The blocks corner is filled with vehicles, road signs and shops. The playhouse is now the BCNS Veterinarian clinic. Everywhere you look, there are community themed activities for the children to explore.
The firefighters will visit both classes with their fire truck at the end of the month! The Pre-K class will also be visiting the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art (BIMA) and police station. If you would like to come in and share about your community helper job, please let your child’s teacher know. We love having families in the classroom.
November also brings up discussions about Thanksgiving. Being thankful is a difficult concept for many preschool-aged children but we do our best to acknowledge the spirit of Thanksgiving. It is a tradition at BCNS to read Stone Soup and create our own soup to eat at school with our friends.
We are thankful for our amazing BCNS community of families who make our school such a wonderful place.
