School Bells Ring - Friends and School Helpers - Day 3

Morning Circle (AM 9:00-9:30..PM 12:30-1:00)
1. Song Can
2. Calendar
3. Who is you're friend? We'll go around the circle and find out who each others friends are. We'll talk about how each person in preschool is a friend too, even Miss Chelsea. Friends help each other also, and in school we all need to help each other. If someone gets hurt, we should help them. If someone needs help at a center, we should help them. If someone wants to play with us or share a toy, we should play and share. We should also help by taking care of the classroom and helping clean up our messes. If an accident happens, it's OK, just tell Miss Chelsea. If nobody helps in preschool, it wouldn't be a very good school.
4. Read the story, "My Teacher is My Friend"
