Week of the Young Child

This week has been a blast! Every day has had a different theme and it has been so much fun dressing up and seeing what the friends were going to wear.

Tuesday was crazy hat and sock day. There were so many great socks and hat combinations.
We also love posing for pictures with or without our hats.
Wednesday was Pajama day. So many great p.j’s!
Thursday was summer fun and we had so many friends with cool sunglasses.
On Friday we had popsicles when we were in the yard to celebrate a birthday!
Then we went inside and ate delicious fruit. Thank you everyone for all the fruit. We had so much we couldn’t even eat all of it!
We had a pizza lunch and we sang Happy Birthday to one of our friends!

All in all it was a pretty busy week and we can’t wait to see what next week will bring!

April

Big Field! ( and a little more)

This week has been a quiet one but still a fun one. The big school is on Spring Break and while the cats away the mice will play! We got to go to the Big Field on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.

We took our blankets and had a nice snack on the field and Ms. Sheri read us a couple of stories and then we got to run and play!

Pinkalicious is always a favorite book to read. Ms. Sheri also read Baby Beluga and The Poky Little Puppy.
Red Light, Green Light is a favorite game for the Big Field. Although sometimes we forget that red means stop.

We also just like to run and chase each other. I don’t know who is more tired at the end, the kids or the teachers.

This week we have been very focused on birthday parties. So in the sandbox we have decided that it is everyone’s birthday and we had the biggest party ever!

While this week has been so much fun, we can’t even imagine how much fun next week will be when we celebrate The Week of the Young Child. Each day will have its own exciting new theme!

Butterflies in Room 2

Room 2 welcomed caterpillars into our classroom a couple weeks ago. We used magnifying glasses to make observations, have discussions and read books about the life cycle of butterflies. This week we observed 4 butterflies emerge from their chrysalis.

Today we released our butterflies at the big field. Check out how excited our little ones were to say their joyful goodbyes!

Easter is Coming!

Easter Sunday is on April 4th and what better way to celebrate but with a party!! We danced,ate snack, wore bunny ears, made crafts and read from the Bible.

After we do morning meeting we pray before we head to snack!
We had festive tablecloths and fun snack and one little sweet treat!
We decorated big eggs and made crowns!
Outside we painted fake flowers and one of the teachers brought their pet bunny. Hello Pancake!
We loved wearing our bunny ears inside the classroom! Thanks Ms. Sheri!
We danced until we dropped!

We had such a fun time with the eggs and the bunnies and the chicks but we all know that the real reason we celebrate Easter is because of Jesus and his never ending love.

We are so fortunate to be able to celebrate in all the big ways and little ways too! Happy Easter to all!
