Ms. Tessa Burroughs

Hello from Preschool!

I am Ms. Tessa Burroughs and I teach the 3 & 4 year olds. I am about to hit my 2 year mark for teaching here at APS Preschool. 

Right now I have 10 lively and fun students. Every day is a new adventure in our room! We are always learning and growing. 

Our days usually consist of working on learning letters in our names & writing them, singing color songs, counting, playing and doing fun activities with each lesson. During our most recent weeks we've had fun learning about Fall, Nocturnal Animals, Shapes and now Thanksgiving. When we get back from Thanksgiving break we will be all about Christmas!!

At the beginning of our Fall study we started off talking about leaves. One of our favorite things to do was checking the tree on the Preschool playground to see when the leaves would change colors. Last week was really the first week when it completely turned orange and red and oh my was it exciting! This week we are finding all those beautiful leaves on the ground but I enjoy watching the kids excitement as they pick them up and show them to me.

This week is when we will hear and use the word THANKFUL a lot! Naturally, we made hand turkeys and named things we are thankful for. Here are some things we are thankful for in Preschool:
