Preschool is a magical time for children. The world opens up for them, and brings them new experiences. Friendships are made and new skills are learned. Children need to learn how to accept others that are different from themselves, how to be polite, show respect to others, how to share and how to have empathy for others. These important factors are the keys to successful interactions between peers. Many new friends came to our preschool this year. We used the activity "Friendship tree" to show kids that in our preschool we are friends and "we are growing together on one tree". We wish that all the kids will find good friends and have a lot of fun in the preschool, because "sharing makes our life happy!"
September in the Kindergarten class means back to preschool, our routines, teachers, and friends. The Kindergartners are very excited to be "the big kids" in the preschool now, and we are excited to have some new classmates in our preschool too.
One part of our learning in Kindergarten is practicing our writing. Each child had their own journal for the month of September and we already began to write! We had many new words that remind us of what happens in September and we had our first experience with writing them in our journals. We wrote in our journals every week in September and now have a nice keepsake for our first month in Kindergarten. Not only could we practice our writing, but we also learned some new words! We are looking forward to improving our writing in our future monthly journals!

Does everything have a shadow?
Take a look around and see what things form shadows. You will notice that swings, trees, cars, tables and almost everything else has a shadow. Any object – living or non-living that can block light can cast shadows.
How are shadows formed?
Sometimes objects can block light, which means that no light is able to pass through that object. An object from which no light can pass through is called an opaque object. The easiest example is our body. Stand in the way of a beam of a light from a small torch. Ask someone to stand behind you and spot the beam of light. The person behind you will see
