Hello Room 2 friends! Welcome back to our blog! We LOVE all of our friends who come and check in with us each week.😊
It’s been a beautiful and wonderful week here in Room 2, full of fun activities and learning. Here are our highlights of the week!💫
On Monday and Tuesday, we had a fun cooking activity! Our friends made pumpkin donuts, and they were DELICIOUS!!🍩🍩🍩. **(And a very special Thank You to Dina for all her help! You are a blessing, Dina!💖)**
We also had a new friend of the week this week! Our friends had the chance to learn about our friend’s life and her favorite things! She also had lunch with her best friend at the Friend-Of-The-Week table! So fun.🌈🍴
Room 2 also had a fun science activity this week: dissecting Pumpkins!🎃 It was a fantastic opportunity for friends to get in there with their hands and explore how Pumpkins smell, feel, and what they are like on the inside! Some friends loved getting in there, while other friends were a little more hesitant. But everyone gave it a try, and the Room 2 teachers were so proud!
On Wednesday, Room 2 headed outside for our Big Field activity and we played a great game of Martian Tag! Friends went wild, playing on Miss Kira’s Team, The Martians, and Miss Wendy’s Team, The Rangers!
During Morning Meetings, our story this week was “The Pumpkin Patch Parable,” and it told us the story of a farmer and his patience in growing his pumpkins, which were his favorite. The farmer eventually grows his best pumpkin and gives it a face, making it new, and he puts a candle in it, filling it with light. We learned that just like the farmer, God offers His children the chance to be made new, filled with joy and light for the whole world to see and know He is good. (2Corinthians 5:17)
It’s our heart’s desire that wherever you might be reading this, you will feel a part of the growth happening in Room 2. We are so deeply proud of each of our friends and the way they continuously show their teachers, and each other, that they are thriving, shining, and helping each other to love like Jesus does. We pray that you are drawn nearer to God’s loving heart each week as you check in with us, and we cannot wait to check in with you again next week!
Have a blessed week!
P.S. It was picture day this week! Our friends showed up to school in their Sunday Best! Can’t wait to see how the pictures turn out! In the meantime, here are some extra pictures we hope you’ll love!💕
