Reading away!

This week the preschoolers not only had one special reader come to visit but two! Mr. Foxall the principle at SME came visited our school on Tuesday for the principle swap and read the classic book Corduroy. Then on Thursday, Mrs. MacQueen came in and read her funny Pete the Cat books we love! The preschooler enjoy being read to and want to Thank our two special guest readers for coming in and spending some time with us! Also, on Thursday Play-group hosted by the OCCC started up again. This is when members of the surrounding communities or future preschool students come and hang out with us in the gym from 9-11. This allows new families to get to know the school, the teachers, and see some of the fun activities we do here at the Westshire Preschool. If you know of anyone in the West Fairlee or Vershire area with kiddos that are around the 2-3 year old mark we would love to have them join!

Beautiful day for a field trip!

Our field trip on Thursday to River View farm in Plainfield was a great success! We had the most gorgeous weather to pick apples, raspberries and pumpkins. Some preschoolers and their parents ventured into the corn maze while others picked and tried some yummy peach colored raspberries! What an amazing day! Thank you to all the parents, grandparents, and staff at River View farm for making this a wonderful trip. We will be sure to come back in the future! (Also a big thanks to Brooke Gladstone for helping us teachers line this trip up! :))

Some yummy cider and cheese to start our day!

Planning what they are going to do first!

Wacky weather and butterflies!

What a wacky week weather wise! The preschoolers were melting like popsicles Monday through Wednesday and wearing coats Thursday and Friday! Overall we have had a great week getting outside and enjoying whatever weather we encountered! We released two more butterflies from our tank and picked the pumpkins out of our garden. We can't wait to explore and do fun activities with the pumpkins next week. 
Both preschool rooms have been working on counting and shapes, as well as learning some fun new songs at Morning Meeting. (Be sure to ask your preschooler to teach you what song they have been working on at circle, they are becoming such pros at them!) Also, this week we had our first Fire drill. The preschoolers all did an amazing job listening and following directions. Great job!

Doing some counting at snack time.

Following some "directions" on how to make a train track.

Going for a ride in the van!

Special Friday!

Another busy week in the Preschool! Monday we had Picture Day, which turned out to be a great success! To add to our special Monday, we welcomed Tyson to Mrs. L's class! We are so excited to have another friend join our preschool family! Welcome!!

Today (Friday) the preschoolers got to release their first Monarch butterfly! We have all been waiting patiently to see when our butterflies would make their grand appearance. 
  We were all very curious to see it spread its wings and walk up and down the stick!

With all of this gorgeous weather we have been having, the preschoolers have been spending a lot of time outside! We have been playing "kitties", trucks, and enjoying our sand box. We don't want this weather to end! 
It will stay this warm up until December right??
