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!

                                                


                                                  Building snow people and forts outside!









 
Some important reminders!
 
*Monday January 16th there is NO SCHOOL to observe Martin Luther King's Day.

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.
