We had an amazing two days of pizza-making with our parent volunteers. We hope you enjoy these pictures as much as they enjoyed the pizzas! They also made Little Red Hens in honor of The Little Red Hen story that Ms. Gwen so graciously read to us! Super fun and busy days! Stay tuned for October’s blog!
Loose parts play is a wonderful way for children to develop creativity and critical thinking skills. It gives them the opportunity to use their imagination in open-ended scenarios. As they experiment with a variety of materials, they are engineering, problem solving, collaborating and so much more!
On the Older Pod Patio, our friends have been enjoying natural materials, recycled materials, and pets. Check out some of the amazing ways they’ve played with these loose parts.
The kids so much fun doing so many different activities with all the Apple you all provided this week. Thank you for your collaboration. Have a look at all the educational and fun projects we did so far.
Apple arts and craft
So many apples, what can we do? We can count, do a flannel story and more…
Next week we will be cooking a simple but delicious apple dumpling with our parents help and all the apples that were brought into our class.
In the month of September we emphasize the concept of lines. On older pod patio, we’ve been exploring lines through line collage art, negative space painting, golf ball painting and more!
Even clean up is fun! Check out our Room 1 friends as they work together to clean up colorful paint splatter around the art easel.
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10
We have officially started small groups! Last week we picked out our group names. This week we are focusing on the letter A and things that start with A like apples. Right now we are getting used to gathering in our groups and we are learning which teacher leads each small group. So here they are!
Small Groups happen every day except for Wednesday and we are having a lot of fun learning new things. We look forward to a year of learning and exploring together.
What amazing kids we have in class, they can recap our Bible story Creations. We ask them questions such as, What did God put on the sky for night time? Or for day time? We also ask them, What kind of animals did God created for the ocean? Or animals that can crawl, creek or slider? They can excitedly give the correct answers.
Fall is near and we are reading some awesome Apple Books. We will be doing art, simple cooking with our two year olds, math and science with all different kids of apples.
