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??










We hope everyone has a great weekend and enjoys the beautiful weather we are suppose to have :)

Buzzey Week!

The preschoolers had a busy first full week of school! We kept exploring our classrooms as well as our play space outside. Everyone is settling in very nicely into their classrooms! 







All of our caterpillars are in their cocoons! We are eagerly waiting to see when they turn into butterflies!



Mrs. Nichols' class did some beading with pipe cleaners and pony beads. They made some beautiful bracelets to wear!





We had Kyle's mom, Katelyn come in and share a special treat with us on Thursday while the bigger kids were at the Tunbridge fair. She brought in some maple candies that her and her family make. She explained about how they were made.
 The preschoolers loved them! Thank you! :)


Also on Thursday we got to go and do art with Mrs. Bando! We made bee pictures out of oil pastels. We will finish our drawings next Thursday! Bee on the look out for them!
