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!

                                                


                                                  Building snow people and forts outside!









 
Some important reminders!

Welcome back!!

Happy New Years and Welcome back!
Hope everyone had a restful and relaxing break. The Preschoolers seem all rested and ready to kick off the second part of the year with a bang!
 
Today with the warmer temperatures outside it was perfect for making snowman! We did A LOT of snow-persons, snow-bear, snow-animal building!
 

 
Team work always works!

 
Taking a break... snow building is hard work!



 
Yay for our beautiful Snow person!!
 
 
 
We also got to play with snow INSIDE as well, which was a treat! We added some animals that we thought lived in the snow or colder areas.

Turn-Over Wednesday!

I hope everyone had a restful and wonderful Thanksgiving last week!

After a long weekend and an Ice day yesterday, we did some fun cooking to kick off Wednesday and some train building to travel into Thursday!! We also got started making our letter G with glitter and glue for the letter of the week. The preschoolers loved seeing what would pop up after they covered their glue with beautiful glitter.

Using an apple peeler to make our apple turn-overs!

Very fascinated that it makes the apples into spirals! :)
 

 Taking turns using the peeler.

LOTS of glitter and glue on the preschoolers and the paper!

 



 
Preschoolers have been doing a lot with marbles and shoots as well as trains and building tracks. They are great builders and problem solvers.

Today in the spirit of the new snow we made snow-boys and girls! We had a great time gluing all the body parts on and adding some snowflakes all around!



 
For the past few weeks Mrs. Hillary has been joining us to read the book Jamberry. She reads with the kids and plays games related to the story to help with memory and language. We have really enjoyed having her on Tuesdays and Fridays!
