Spring has Sprung!!

Image
What a great weather week! The Preschoolers loved being outside and enjoying some warm weather and sunshine! On our playground we have a nice water "hole/pond" where all the ice and snow melt has collected. The preschoolers have really enjoyed scooping the water out with their shovels, rakes, and even hands! They have also gone fishing and said there were monsters lurking below! Eek!  As the snow melts more today and this weekend, we cant wait to see what the pond will have in it next week!



Peek-a-boo!


This week the preschoolers did some Easter activities with water colors and paints. We were all pretty excited for the Easter bunny to come this weekend. Also thanks to Cooper for a very interactive share! He brought in a special craft to make baby chicks and bunnies for the class! Thank you!


Both classrooms have been working hard on writing our names and letters that our special to us. Some fun ways we have been practicing our writing is on white boards. We love writing a bu…

March Madness!!

The Preschoolers have been busy bodies this week. We have been doing some different art projects as well as adding to our dramatic play area with some new dresses, coats, handbags, and accessories! They have enjoyed going on picnics as well as taking their babies to the movies.   The Preschoolers have also been continuing their exploration of space and getting messy with paper mache with Mrs. Nichols! Stop by and check out our planets as well as our "space suits" we made this week!





To burn off some of our "spring-y" energy, the preschoolers LOVE going to the gym on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We play with bikes, balls, gym mats, and other things to challenge our balance, speed, and coordination! Thursdays are extra special because we have playgroup that day. This is when future preschoolers come and check out the gym and play with the current preschoolers. We love playing and seeing all the babies!






Having warmer weather right around the corner (hopefully...) we please…

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
The Preschoolers made leprechaun traps today to catch the pesky leprechauns that will be making havoc in our classrooms this weekend! We hope we can catch some!  Check out our traps on Monday!






Last week we celebrated Love to Read week and Dr. Suess's Birthday by wearing our pajamas and slippers! We read some great stories like Horton Hatches an Egg, Cat in the Hat, Cat and the Hat comes Back, Green Eggs and Ham. We also celebrated by enjoying some cinnamon rolls we made as well!

We continue to learn about Space and planets! Here is some astronauts getting ready for take off!


Preschoolers have also started to work with Mrs. Nicole on Mondays and Fridays. Mrs. Nicole comes in and teaches us different ways to help regulate our bodies, breath and calm down, and be just right in our classroom space. She also takes the preschoolers that will be going into Kindergarten next year for some more tailored one on one instruction. We have been having a blast learn…

Welcome back! We are glad everyone had a nice and restful winter break. We had some beautiful weather to enjoy over our time off, but now we are back and ready to shoot for the stars!
The preschoolers are jumping right into our exploration of rockets and outer-space! Mrs. Nichols class has been working hard on making rockets and planet earths out of paper mache. It sure was messy but the preschoolers loved it!





A rocket has landed in Mrs. L's class, and the preschoolers have been exploring the stars with their special flashlights and the proper astronaut gear!



Making launch pads for our rockets to blast off!

Getting our babies ready for the long ride to the moon!

The preschoolers also got to experience something pretty cool this week. Jenn Shatney donated a huge books of preschooler size skis for us to try when we are out on our playground! The preschoolers loved just scooting along and learning the feel of the skis. After some more practice we hope to try the little hill we have …
