A message to our Grandparents from Room 1B
We have been enjoying the season as we learn about the reason, Jesus! The kids have had a great time jumping, spinning, twisting, clapping, and singing together.
Hi guys! It’s been a long while since we’ve last checked in! We hope this finds you well and enjoying the first day of February! (Can you believe it?!)🤗💘❄️
Room 2 has been busy transitioning back into the rhythm of learning and having fun! We’ve been hard at work practicing our counting, letter recognition, and have been intentional about getting our hands into some science experiments!
Room 2 had the awesome opportunity to learn about worm anatomy!🐛🐛🐛🐛🐛😱😆 It was quite the experience!! We were so excited to see our friends be excited to learn! We loved learning about how worms help to keep our earth healthy, so that things are able to grow nice and strong in the ground! They are nature’s littlest farmers! We also learned about salt and how salt affects ice! Our friends had an amazing time seeing the salt melt ice and we added some fun colors too, and tracked the salt! It was so fun!
Small groups continue to be a blast for both friends and teachers! We love getting excited about learning! We have also been working hard on our numbers and letters, using fun things like salt and buttons to practice!
We love what we do here. God is so faithful and good and his love is always present, shaping us in our heart and guiding our learning. It’s the most precious thing in the world to see God in the lives of each of our Room 2 friends. That’s the real treasure here, and we can’t believe we get to see it all happen. Wow.✨
One last thing, we’ve been really intentional about talking about obedience this past month and what it means for us and for God when we choose to obey. The Bible tells us in Luke 11:28 that Jesus said that those who hear the word of God and obey it are blessed. We’ve discussed obedience every day at school and have been intentional to really explain to our friends that the choice to obey God, parents, teachers, and just good and healthy authority ultimately brings us good things; God’s goodness. We encourage you to ask our friends about obedience and keep the conversation going at home. God loves when we obey, because it shows maturity and it shows that we are ready to be trusted with more of the blessings he wants to give us. So good!
We hope to be more frequent with keeping you in the loop about our happenings here in Room 2! Thanks for checking in and we’ll see you around!🤗❤️

Hi friends! Welcome back to Room 2’s blog post! We hope this finds you well and enjoying the fall season. Here in our classroom, we’ve really been enjoying all the fun activities and learning that comes with the fall season. God is so good and he’s been so faithful in our classroom.💫< b>< b>To start off, our small groups have been going wonderfully! Our friends have really been working hard at each activity, and have already shown lots of growth in their ability to focus and stay on task. Friends have been practicing their prewriting skills and have even given letters a try!📝We are SO proud of our friends for being so willing and excited to try and to not give up, even when the writing or drawing gets hard to do. We are working together as a team to continue building up our friends’ confidence to learn and take risks! One of our fun and risky activities this past week was digging into and dissecting a pumpkin!🎃It was so fun exploring a pumpkin’s insides and feeling all of the textures! Lots of friends stepped out of their comfort zone and went for it! So fun!😊We’ve also had so much fun during our outdoor times! One of our favorite activities was playing with a giant parachute! We loved seeing so many colors in the sun and Gavin our friends jump and dance. It was so beautiful!🌈
br>< so, today was an exciting day on our campus! We had our annual California Shake-Out! Thankfully, things went smoothly as we practiced our drills to prepare us for an earthquake. Our friends did so well! We are so excited for what’s ahead in the coming weeks leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday! We know God is present and continues to lead us with grace and love as our friends grow and learn in their classroom. It’s been such a gift to watch them take the lead and grow more confident and more able. The last couple of weeks, we’ve been talking about and memorizing Psalm 91:1. It’s so important to us that our friends really internalize God’s word and understand it to the best of their ability. We know that true identity of self is found in God’s word, so we want to continue to encourage growth in our classroom in this area as well. It’s pretty amazing, and we know that equipping them in this is a tool that they will have for the rest of their lives. We encourage you at home to join us in putting this to practice with us!📖☺️ Until next time, everyone! Blessings and we’ll see you around!❤️
In His love,
Miss Wendy and the Room 2 Team.🍎

Welcome back to Room 2’s blog post! It’s so great to be back and check in with you on what we’ve up to in Room 2!
It’s been amazing to get into our rhythm as a classroom! Above is a picture of our friends at Chapel. Every Wednesday, we go up to the “big school” and join the big kids for a time of worship at Chapel. We always have an amazing time singing our hearts out to Jesus!
This week was our first week doing small groups and curriculum in our classroom, and we must say, things are off to an excellent start. Friends worked on Journals, their alphabet, and also experimented with science, as we set up an activity involving cornstarch. It was a ton of fun!😃
Our kiddos loved seeing the process of the cornstarch turning from a liquid to a solid, as well as the slimy consistency. Pretty fascinating stuff!
We’ve also been very intentional about learning some bible verses with our friends! So far, our kiddos have memorized John 10:11 and John 14:6. We encourage you to ask them about it at home and practice it together as a family. We’re really proud of our friends, and we hope you’ll help us at home by continuing to encourage them with us. Next week we will be memorizing Psalm 23:1. It’s so beautiful to learn God’s word together! 📖 ❤️
We are so happy with the way our friends are beginning to make this classroom their home away from home, and we are very thankful to have each one of them with us. They are a huge blessing to each of us and seeing them thrive is our heart’s desire this year. We are continuing to draw nearer to The Lord as we take each day, one step at a time. We know God’s heart for Room 2 is that each friend would grow and learn each day, not just academically, but in their heart, character, and identity in Him, and we are continuing to go after that everyday.
We look forward to more adventures as we get ready for Fall! Keep checking back in with us, and we’ll see ya next week.☺️
In His Love,
Miss Wendy and the Room 2 Team 🍎
Hi there, friends!
We are SO excited to officially welcome the 2017-2018 PreK-2 class to Room 2!🍎😊
We are blessed beyond belief to have started our year so strong already! We’ve had a fantastic week getting acquainted with each one of our new friends, and our hearts are elated at the thought of how God will move in our classroom this year. We are so expectant to see Him do amazing things in the lives of each Room 2 friend, as they learn and grow.
It’s a sincere privilege and honor to be back into the swing of things here. We simply wanted to take a minute to send out this quick message as a reminder that this blog is and will continue to be a fantastic way to stay connected with us each week. We will try to post weekly so that you are in-the-know of what goes on in our classroom.
We want you to know that even before school started we as a team prayed over our Room 2 friends and their families, and we will continue to do so as the year progresses. We hope to become like family along side you, as we get to both teach your children, as well as lead them closer to Christ. What we want and hope for is to be a team with you, to ensure the most successful year for our Room 2 Friends.
Because it’s our first week, we didn’t have much of an opportunity for very many pictures, but here are just a few that we managed to capture. We’ll check back in next week!
Miss Wendy and the Room 2 Team❤️
Dear Room 2 Friends☺️,
We want to take a moment to say THANK YOU, from the bottom of our hearts! We have had the most incredible year, and we really believe that was due to the teamwork and family environment that we built amongst each other throughout the year! Jesus’ heart has shined so bright in our classroom, and His love has been ever so evident in everything we’ve done. It’s impossible to not see how God is on the move among this generation of tiny humans, and we are confident that He has such an amazing call for each of their lives. We pray that as they go and grow, they will remain in His love and truth for their lives.
It’s the sweetest honor for us to have been given the opportunity to walk along side each of them, in this tiny season of their lives that is preschool! It’s been our deepest joy to love them, teach them, and serve them. As we say goodbye, we leave you with this beautiful slideshow of our year together, along with our Room 1 neighbors. We hope that, like us, you’ll always remember our time together learning, growing, and worshiping God as a family each day, for all He has done, for all He is doing, and all He will do.❤
All our deepest love,
Ms. Wendy💗, Ms. Daisy💛, and Ms. Kira💚.
Hi, Room 2 friends! We hope this finds you well!
It’s been a while since we’ve last checked in! There’s been a lot of transition happening, as we prepare for the end of the school year… Can you believe we’ve made it to the end?! Time flies when you’re having this much fun! We wouldn’t have it any other way. The Lord has been such a faithful and good Father to us in Room 2, every step of the way. His heart for this classroom is so evident!❤
Last month we had an amazing time together as we celebrated Easter! It was humbling and powerful to remember Jesus dying for our sins on the cross, and then being raised from the dead in victory! He defeated death and sin, all because He LOVED us… We all were the joy set before Him, and it was His joy to do what He did, because we are who he thought about as He took on every sin, hanging on the cross. And only He could’ve done it! And now, and throughout all of eternity, we can and will proclaim that LOVE HAS WON!!! Because the best part happened after the cross; 3 days later, HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD! And He is ALIVE, right now!! And His victory is our victory!!! Amen!❤
We celebrated Easter as a Room 2 family, going to chapel, reading books, singing songs, doing art, and we ended by eating together, as a family. It was so beautiful! We want to thank the parents who contributed food, decorations, crafts, books, and most importantly, their time. It meant so much to our classroom!😊
Next up, after Easter, was our last field trip of the school year! Our whole Room 2 crew headed out to the La Brea Tar Pits for an amazing day outside, exploring! We learned about all kinds of fossils, including mammoths, dire wolves, and sabertooth cats! It was fascinating to explore together, as we made the park our outdoor classroom for the day. We had so much fun!
We also enjoyed lunch together under a nice tree that gave us plenty of shade from the heat!🌳☺️
We are SO incredibly thankful for everyone who came out on this last trip with us! It was amazing to spend the day together! We loved every minute! We are so thankful for the many opportunities God has given us to fellowship together this year. Here in Room 2, we have a phrase that we use: “Teamwork makes the dream work!” And we can honestly say that being a team with the Room 2 parents this year was one of the best blessings we could’ve experienced. Thank you for your time and effort. We know how much you love because you constantly showed us! And seeing you present with us, was the sweetest encouragement. God’s love has remained perfectly constant each day! What a gift!
As we prepare our hearts to leave Room 2, we hope you know how deeply we’ve loved this classroom this year, and how intentionally we’ve prayed for unity, healing, and love, as we’ve grown together academically. Though academics have always remained important, our focus has also remained on The Heart; God’s heart for Room 2, and Room 2’s heart for Him and each other. It’s been a beautiful season, and now it’s coming to an end… But wow, how excited we are for what Jesus has in store for us all in this next season. We go from glory to glory. Amen.❤

P.S. As always, candids! Enjoy!
We hope you’re well and blessed! We’ve definitely been having TONS of fun here in Room 2! Can you believe the school year will be over in just a few short weeks?! We definitely don’t want to think about that just yet… Not when there’s still so much fun to be had.😎
Last week was a huge treat for our entire school as we were visited by two police men, who came to speak to us about their job! It was so exciting to have them teach us about their gadgets, general safety, and about their vehicles! Some of our kiddos even had the chance to see inside! SO. COOL.🚓🏍
Meanwhile, inside the classroom, we’ve been hard at work as we finish up our very last unit of curriculum! So exciting!!Our friends have been working hard, learning their shapes and letters as we conclude our last unit. They’re doing so well! We are super proud of their progress!!📚🖍☺️
Also, Room 2 is SO excited to be diving into the fascinating world of dinosaurs!! Our friends have been learning about dinosaurs, their anatomy, and their lifestyles! We saw the children develop an interest in dinosaurs and took the opportunity to encourage their curiosity to learn! It’s been such an amazing adventure. WE ARE LOVING IT!!
We’re so thankful with God for the amazing gift He gives us each day, to learn and grow. Our hearts are elated and full of praise for the amazing ways His heart shines in our room. We’ve become such a family in our classroom, and as we head into these last few weeks of school, our hearts are deeply thankful and pensive at the memories we’ve made so far. The love, compassion, kindness, and overall growth that God has done in us will always remain, and that is the highest and sweetest blessing. We can’t wait to see what else these next few weeks have in store for us! Easter is next week, and we have one last adventurous field trip coming up in a couple weeks. We can’t wait to see you there.❤
Blessings and TONS of love,
Miss Wendy and the Room 2 Team💕

Welcome back to Room 2’s blog post!
We had an absolutely wonderful time last week, exploring Descanso Gardens on our field trip! It felt great to get out of the classroom for a change and marvel at God’s creation together. We loved being outside, learning the names of plants, trees, and simply getting to enjoy nature. God is so good, and provided us with the perfect weather to experience it in.🌾
Our Room 2 friends got to take in some beautiful views! The cherry blossoms were particularly gorgeous!
We loved taking in some fresh air and especially loved having moms and dads accompanying us! Parents, you always make our trips extra special. Thanks for making the time to be there! We love being a team with you.😊🍃
God is so good… He gives us so much. It can be hard in our busy lives to really make time to sit with Him and thank Him. But by making time to be outside and to fellowship with friends, we are doing just that. We are thanking Him. We must try remember to take a moment and thank Him. He’s worthy of our deepest praise and gratitude. He’s the Good Shepherd, who knows us; he knows our deepest needs, our deepest wants, and dreams. There isn’t a single detail of our lives that He doesn’t know about. Knowing this allows us to have peace and to hope, no matter where we might be in our journey with Him.🌱
“The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name…” Psalm 23:1-3❤
We pray you are encouraged to look around and take a few moments to spend time with Jesus, wherever you might be. Here in Room 2, we don’t take those moments for granted. Until next time…💛
P.S. As always, a few candids!📸💕
