🥳 Happy New Year! 🥳
It is a brand new year and there have been so many changes that we have gone through together. One big change has happened to the physical classroom itself! We moved some areas around and the flooring is different.
We have had a fun time this week exploring the differences and seeing what things are still the same.
Here is a quick look at what the classroom looks like now.
While there have been many changes we hope that one thing stays the same. That the Room 3 friends still enjoy coming to school and playing with their friends. We know that we love seeing all of you.
We hope you have a great weekend and we will see you all soon!!
Happy New Year from your friends on the Older Pod Patio! Check out some of the fun and festive activities we did in December…
We enjoyed gingerbread playdough!
We worked our fine motor muscles using gel sensory bags!
We did some STEM building with cups and ornaments!
We read to our Christmas cats!
We built with magna-tiles and jingle bells!
We enjoyed making Christmas sticker creations!
We cut pine needles and explored snow dough in our sensory bin!
We worked with friends to decorate our Christmas tree using loose parts!
We mastered our gross motor skills for the month by practicing going over, under and through the jingle bells!
We enjoyed cheering on our friends as they made their way through our Christmas obstacle course!
Our specials this week were Pancakes with a side of blueberries and strawberries topped with whip cream or syrup! All the guests who attended loved their meal. Some were even interested in helping to prepare it while others just waited for their meals to be ready. Some guests ate so fast that the servers couldn’t get the guests their sides in time! Thank you to all the wonderful hands that helped prepare it and the wonderful donations that made it possible.
Who is coming,who is coming to our pre-school? Grandparents of course. It was such a blessing and good feeling to enjoy the company of our lovely grandparents. It felt a little closer to our normal life.
The kids were happy and did an amazing job at singing our songs.

Tuesday, January 4th – Preschool Resumes
Stone Soup is a tradition at the preschool that we have done for quite awhile. You bring what you got and you put it in the pot!
The children love chopping the vegetables for the soup and then during lunch we all get to try the soup. Along with some fruit and bread!
Stone Soup teaches us about sharing and what awesome things we can do when we all work together! Thanks for all the yummy ingredients.
We had pigs, chickens, goats, ducks, and a goose visiting us at he pre school. Before their visit we read books about farm animals, sang songs and watch animal videos on YouTube. Having the real thing here at PCS was a treat.
We had a wonderful time celebrating God’ gifts to us through our Stone Soup days! We began our days having wonderful parent volunteers come and read our story Fox Tale Soup. We then had fun filling in what we are thankful for on our craft! We also worked hard using our fine motor skills to cut and chop all our veggies for our soup! During our outside play time, our soup cooked and cooked, and at lunch we tried it and we LOVED it! Yum!
Thank you to our amazing parent helpers who came and helped assist in the festivities and those who brought ingredients to share! You made thus year a success!
Have a blessed Thanksgiving reflecting on all God have given in His perfect provision!
your Room 2 teachers ❤️
“Give thanks to the LORD for He is good. His love endures forever.” Psalm 118:1
Last week we had some special visitors! Animal visitors in fact. Usually this time of the year we go to a farm and this year the farm came to us.
We talked about what animals we might see and what sounds they make. We also made some cool headbands to wear while we pet them.
It was so much fun seeing farm animals and getting to touch them. We ended our farm day by making paper plate animals; pigs and sheep. Some friends made more than one ( you’re welcome!)
Thanksgiving is for giving thanks and being grateful for all that we have. In classroom #4 we are blessed by our kids and their parents.
Stone Soup was a fun and amazing event. It was a special time together shopping vegetables sharing and enjoying each other’s company.
May God bless you all. Happy Thanksgiving.
