    Message From Our Teachers During the month of Februrary Queen’s Park Preschool was filled with extra love as we celebrated Valentines Day, friendship, family and kindness together. Highlights of the month included heart shapes, the colour red and searching for treasure, heart treasure that is. Together we have been working on our art show art projects for our upcoming art exhibit called Lines and Dots. The art show will feature wire sculpture, abstract paintings and self portraits! Getting up close and personal with our guineau pig Windy offered some of us a way to practice gentleness and loving care. Bringing out our big blue mat to jump, bounce, roll and dance was so much fun! We love our big blue mat as it offers us a chance to use our large muscles and really use our leg strength and core.

A few activities we shared in the class included wheels and gears in our 3’s and gears and pulley systems in our fours. In the four year old classes we began drawing self portraits with ink on cardstock as an extension to the interesting mirror fascination that evolved from setting out mirrors and feelings cards. The opportunity to name and express feelings and emotions is so vital. Making silly faces and looking closely at personal features is a wonderful self awareness and self empowering activity.  Clay was introduced as a new and exciting medium to create with.
