Ducks!!

 
Duck update!:
One hatched today! yay finally! The preschoolers watched him or her kick and crack their egg around lunch time for about 20 minutes. They were so fascinated with the eggs moving and changing right before their eyes! We were so excited to wake up from nap and find this little guy/girl stumbling around! :)
 
 
 
Another on the way! Be sure to check the incubator for possibly two ducklings tomorrow morning!

Spring is here!! and Welcome Mrs. Kim! :)

 
Welcome Mrs. Kim!! Mrs. Kim started with us on Monday and has fit right into our preschool family! We are so excited to have her join us during this great time of year,Welcome!!
 


We added 2 new chicks to our growing flock of 5! We are all very eager for the arrival of the ducks, which should come either tomorrow or Thursday! :) The preschoolers have given names to all the chickens, they are Watcher, Brownie, Daffodil, Snowball, and lastly Scaredy Cat.

 
Yesterday and today were ABSOLUTELY gorgeous out! The preschoolers (and teachers) have enjoyed going out with no snow-pants or coats on! We have been playing in the mud, the water, and on the swings! Keep this weather coming!
*Please check your preschoolers extra clothing box to see if they need pants, socks, shirts.*





Peek-a-boo!!

The Chicks have ARRIVED!

 
 
Happy Friday! The preschoolers are sooo excited to welcome some of our baby chickens to the preschool classroom!! yay!! We have been patiently waiting and waiting.... and waiting and waiting..... for the chicks and ducklings to make their appearance! We still have a little more of a wait for the ducks to arrive (probably mid week next week!) but we are being great sports about waiting and being careful with the incubator and the eggs!
This week we have also been playing with our pretend chickens and eggs in our dramatic play area too. The preschoolers love collecting eggs from the chickens and ducks and having them as classroom pets! :)
 
Please check the blog for updates on chicks that hatch over the weekend!
 
 


Checking on the eggs the day before.....

Yay! 2 baby chicks this morning!




Reeve is soo excited to show what the chicks did when we were at home! They cracked and hatched!
 
On Tuesday Mrs. Nichols set up a fun and exciting obstacle course! The preschoolers had to balance, jump, skip, crawl, and be silly as they completed the course! The students loved completing each part of the course as they went through it!
 







 
*Also for Ms. Caitlin's classroom we will be having our new Assistant teacher, Kim Smith start on Monday! We are so excited to get to know her and have her apart of our classroom!
Hope everyone has a great a great weekend! :)

Happy Thursday!

 
Preschoolers are defiantly having "spring fever" this week for sure. With the warmer days we have been venturing outside and have been enjoying what is left of the wet snow, (I guess there is more snow to come tomorrow!)
*As a reminder please, please, please pack your preschooler extra socks, pants, and shirts for them to change into when we come back inside. Also if you borrow any clothes from school to please return them so we can have them for other emergencies! Thank you!
 
*Other reminders - No school tomorrow--- Friday March 31st!
**Steering Committee is on Thursday, April 6th at 6:00 at Samuel Morey. We will be talking about where the preschoolers next adventure will be this Spring! Please come with ideas on where would be a great place to spend a day with 45-50 preschoolers!
 
Keep thinking Spring and have a great weekend :)
 
 
Happy Birthday to Layla!!
