Easter in Room 5

Hello from Room 5!

We have been quite busy this past week; dying eggs, making rice crispy eggs and hearing the Easter story.

Each of our friends had the opportunity to dye an egg by picking out the food coloring(s) they wanted and placing a few drops on a scoop of rice. Next, they placed the egg on the rice, closed the container, and shook it! Each egg that was decorated had a very unique design!

After we dyed the eggs, we all had the chance to make some yummy rice crispy treats and put it inside a plastic egg!

We have all heard the Easter story, and I know that God is working in our little ones lives and they are able to recall most of the story! Blessings to you all!

HE is Risen!

Hello from Room 5!

We have been talking about the Easter story over the past few weeks and illustrating it through a story that Mrs. Joyce made and making our Resurrection Rolls.

For the Resurrection Rolls, each child had the chance to roll a marshmallow, which we used to represent Jesus’ body, in butter and a cinnamon sugar mix, representing the spices put on Jesus’ body, and rolled into a crescent roll, representing the cloth used to wrap Jesus’ body. We then put the rolls into the oven which represented the tomb. We talked about after Jesus died, they laid him in the tomb and three days later Jesus wasn’t there because He had risen at which point each child noticed that the marshmallow was gone!

New Year, New Adventures!

Greetings from Room5!!

We are so excited to be back in action and welcoming two amazing new teachers to our class! We are so happy to have Mrs. Joyce and Ms. Ana here to help us learn and grow!

We’ve been having so much fun enjoying our new teachers and fun activities!

For Valentine’s Day we celebrated by making some really cool art! Each child received a heart on white card stock paper, four marbles and a bin to roll the marbles in. We used purple, pink and white paint for he marble rolling and the creations they made were so unique!

And this week for Presidents’ Day, Mrs. Joyce brought two kinds of flowers to our classroom: carnations and chrysanthemums. The children used the flowers as stamps with red and blue paint! Each of the children created such different and unique paintings which are now being displayed on our bulletin board in our block area. Be sure to check it out when you swing by for drop off or pick up!

We are having so much fun growing together as a classroom and adapting well in our Room 5 environment. We love that we get to do this together. God is so good.

We’ll check back in soon!

Love,

Mrs. Erin and the Room 5 Team.
