Our bible story during the month of November was Jesus feeds the 5,000 John 6:9. A story of sharing and being thankful. What an amazing God we have. Through the power of prayer, five loaves of bread and two small fish that a little boy shared, Jesus was able to feed a multitude of His followers.
Our pumpkins, leaves, sticks and fall items donated by all of you provided the children with a fun, exciting and learning activity. The children touched, climbed, compared small and large pumpkins we also dissected and explored inside our pumpkins.
Before making Stone Soup, we explored the smells and tastes of different kinds of vegetables. Thank you for bringing and sharing all the vegetables that made the most delicious Stone Soup. A special Thank you to our parent volunteers: Miriam (Aspen’s mom), Rachel (Ava’s mom), Kelli (Camden’s mom), Peifen (Ella’s mom), and Karen (Kaira’s mom).
We made hand prints which were sent home as a “Thanksgiving Momentous.” Preschoolers cannot be expected to create masterpieces, but they can develop symbolic understanding by representing their experiences in paintings, drawings, and collages. Symbolic understanding is key to begin reading, and the discussions a child has about art are a form of practicing communication and expanding their vocabulary.
Oh No!!!! Here comes the celebrations and the holidays. This means that your little ones will be at home extra days or you might take them out of town to see families “Yes,” their routines will be disrupted. It also means that when they come back to school they may or may not go through separation anxiety.
