The Mobile Tide pools at PCS. We had some adventurous kids who wanted to touch and hold the ocean animals that Captain Carol brought. He brought snails, hermit crabs, starfish, sea cucumber, shark, and a sting ray.
We had a few cloudy days on week two but we were able to enjoy some sunny days. Have a look. Woo!! Hoo!!!
We had a wonderful time learning about and interacting with several different species of sea animals! Please enjoy!
Summer Fun in the Sun is off to a great start on the Older Pod Patio! At the water table, we’re working on fine motor—pouring, twisting on and off bottle caps and other practical skills. We’re also mixing primary colors to create secondary colors. This fun, hands on experience is the best way to build knowledge of color concepts.
We have also been Walking the Plank to practice balance and coordination. This on theme, gross motor activity has all our friends trying to keep their little toes safe from the sharks below. Our bodies and imaginations are working!
Painting, water beads, peg boards, dramatic play grotto, and so much more have all our friends exploring and growing together and it’s only week 2!
Checkout a few of our Room 3 friends taking a break from cooking in our dramatic play grotto to have a jam session on our pots and pans! This is a great demonstration of creative play— these friends found an alternative purpose for our materials and seized the opportunity to explore sound. They’re sharing space and materials effectively and developing an understanding of rhythm and music!
Fun in the Sun has been a lot of . . . fun! 🤩
While the preschool was closed the room has undergone a summer renovation. The look of the room has changed a lot and it was fun to see the children discover how things have changed.
The children spent the first day exploring the changes in the classroom.
Kinetic sand has been a classroom favorite and we love finding shells. 🐚
So far the summer has been a blast and we anticipate what is yet to come!
Our first week of Fun in the Sun was amazing, we were blessed by our remarkable weather. We played with lots of water, put on bathing suits, dressed up and dance hula music.
We are ready for some fun in the sun! The older pod enrichment patio is an extension of rooms 1, 2 and 3– our three year olds, young fours and our pre-kindergarteners. Our littles are given the opportunity to flow in and out of their classrooms during their free choice play time. This gives them plenty of options to explore areas that peak their individual interests. Check out some of the play centers ready for our campers to enjoy!
We are looking forward to a fun summer full of water play, sensory exploration, building, bonding and growing in Jesus’ love for us!
