ART STUDIO

Ms. Jen (Silas’s mom) was happy to dedicate her valuable time at our school and make an art project with all the classes in the art studio. Each classroom had a time slop to use the studio and make a special fall art activity. Your little ones enjoyed their time learning new language (squeeze and release), colors and the function of how to use an eye dropper.

Stone Soup

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!

The soup was so good. Thank you to all the parents who helped make the soup! 🍲
Some friends were fans of the soup and other friends. . . not so much. But we all tried new things!

Stone Soup teaches us about sharing and what awesome things we can do when we all work together! Thanks for all the yummy ingredients.

Happy Stone Soup days!

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!

Love,

your Room 2 teachers ❤️

Farm Days

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.

The goats were a big hit and we got to feed them hay and carrots.
We tried to take a group photo (it’s so hard to look in one direction).
The pig was a fan favorite. Her name was Anastasia.
The goats were soooo hungry!
We loved being able to interact with the animals.

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 2021

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.

SUNFLOWERS

We planted sunflowers in our garden, we have been caring for them for many weeks. The children always remind us to water them and to make sure there are no bugs eating them.

Oh, Yes! these seeds came from the flowers we planted last year. Our kids were very patient and alert, waiting and waiting for something to happen. It was so exciting for us to hear from some of the kids “ we see something coming out,” and them pointing out to the sprouts that appearing out from the ground. The sunflowers now measure about six to twelve inches tall.
