During large group kids participated in a number walk game; in groups of two they rolled a dice and walked that amount on a number walk. The goal for the pair was to get to the sum of 20. This activity provided great math practice for the kids!

During large group we were invited down to the drama department to preview two plays that they will be presenting to the local elementary school community; it was a private showing just for Little Wildcats Preschool!! We saw an abridged version of "Alice in Wonderland" and a fun short play called "Norman the Noun". Both were so well done and all preschoolers were such polite listeners!!
