Snow Fun!

The Preschoolers have been enjoying the snow we have out on our playground. We have been sliding, playing hide-and-go-seek, and even trying to be penguins and sliding on our bellies!
 
 





 
Having our delayed start to our morning, preschoolers got to continue their morning play with sand, ice painting and sorting shapes!



                                                             Concentrating so hard!!

 
Some serious Police Officers looking for their walkie-talkies!

Chilly Week!


This week both preschool rooms did a lot of painting! Ms. Caitlin's room did some bear-face art to go along with our hibernation theme, and Mrs. Nichols room did some beautiful valentines art! Both classrooms have been getting outside even in this colder weather. (As a reminder please send in heavy duty mittens to keep our preschoolers happy and warm!) We have been doing some awesome sledding as well as finding "ice chunks" to play with. We decided to bring the outdoors in and played with ice and animals in our sensory table. The students had a great time trying to crack the ice to free the animals as well as figure out how to get them out using water and pipettes.



 
Also this week both classrooms received some new baby dolls to add to our collection. Along with the dolls we have added to our animal and classroom collection of things to do! The students were so excited to help us open the boxes and play with the new materials, it was like Christmas in February!

 
Hope everyone has a great weekend and GO PATS!!!

Welcome Mrs. Elizabeth!

 
 
The Preschool would like to welcome Mrs. Elizabeth to our family! She has been a substitute over the last few months and will be with us the rest of the school year! We are so excited to have her! Welcome! :)
 
 
The preschoolers have been exploring all sorts of dramatic play with new clothing and objects in the kitchens as well as with a "cave". Mrs. Nichols' room made some fun foamy paint with shaving cream and glue the other day and made some snowman in celebration of our snow day! (Very neat stuff to try at home!) And in Ms. Caitlin's room, the preschoolers have been learning about hibernation and hibernating in a cave we painted!
 
 
 
Some fun dress-up play!

Building, Investigating, & Fun!

 
The past few weeks the Preschoolers have been diving right into all the fun activities happening in the classrooms. Mrs. Nichols classroom has been working with mirrors and light. Also they have been building up a storm with a variety of materials. In Ms. Caitlin's class, preschoolers have been mixing colors and working on what animals live in warm weather and what animals live in the cold climates.

 


                                                              Some fun in dress-up!

                      Mirrors and lights! Learning about reflections and how we can change them!
