Apple Pumpkin Days!

Almost a week ago we celebrated Apple Pumpkin Days! We made special snacks and made some art. Here are some photos of all the fun!

The second day was pumpkin day and it was so much fun!

Outside we watched Ms. Gwendolyn carve a pumpkin.

Apple Pumpkin Days went well and we enjoyed both days! Thank you to all the parents who volunteered and donated items. The children (and teachers ๐Ÿ˜) enjoyed it all!

Welcome to a New Year!

It is a brand new school year and we are so excited about all of the fun and learning that we are about to embark upon together!

We are a play based environment and we learn through play! Here are some photos of some of that fun/learning.

Thank you guys for such an awesome start to what is shaping up to be a fantastic year!

Fun in the Sun Week 1!

Fun in the Sun has been a lot of . . . fun! ๐Ÿคฉ

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.

Weโ€™ve fully embraced the ocean theme! ๐ŸŒŠ

The children spent the first day exploring the changes in the classroom.

The submarine has seen lots of underwater adventures!

Kinetic sand has been a classroom favorite and we love finding shells. ๐Ÿš

The splash pad was a little slippery but so much fun!
Chapel with Mr. Tim is so much fun! We love dancing along to the videos.
The afternoons have been pretty warm so we have spray bottles to cool ourselves off with!
Bubble Party was a big hit!

So far the summer has been a blast and we anticipate what is yet to come!

Fun Run and Easter Parties!!

The week leading up to the Fun Run was full of anticipation! We got to go to the Big Field on the main campus and we made a day of it.

First we had a picnic snack! ๐Ÿ˜‹
Then we got to run, skip and dance all around the field! It was so much fun!

The next day we had our first Easter party! We got to tell the story of Easter using Resurrection rolls and then and lunch we got to eat them.

Since it was a party we had to use our pretty tablecloths
Here are a few pictures of parent volunteers helping at Easter parties as well as other times.

We are so grateful that we got to celebrate Easter together and learn about how much God loves us and sent his son Jesus for each and every one of us.

Week of the Young Child

A couple of weeks ago we celebrated Week of the Young Child! Here is a video that Ms. Faith put together to show some of the fun that we had.

Thank you for all that you guys did to make it a fun and special time!


There have been a lot of changes this month! We have started small groups again and there are so many birthdays. Here are a few pictures of our busy, busy month.

Small groups have been missed and we are so glad that we can do them again; we are counting and creating and learning!
Counting with ladybugs and mixing play dough are just a couple of activities that we have done lately. We learned that blue and yellow mixed together make a beautiful green.
We watched a short video about St. Patrick and how he taught others about God.
We also painted caterpillars using blue and yellow paint. Mixing is fun!
Outside is always lots of fun! We have an area for concerts and we love to dress up and sing.
A friend brought an egg and we got to dissolve it in water and see the surprise inside. It was fun and exciting!
We love looking at our caterpillars! They started so small and grow every day. We also love seeing our parent volunteers! Thank you so much for your enthusiasm.
Birthday celebrations are so much fun. We are glad we get to celebrate each birthday.
Even though we have clear skies we have been having fun with umbrella and pretending that it is raining.

We also had a visit from an orthodontist last week. He read us a book about how animals take care of their teeth and we talked about how we take care of ours. He also brought David the dinosaur and showed us how to properly brush our teeth.

All of this and the month isnโ€™t even over yet! We are looking forward to all of the exciting things we have coming next and we will keep you all posted.

Valentines Day

Valentines Day has happened and it was all about love! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’œ Loving each other, loving our families and loving God!

We still have ice in our yard from snow days! We have been playing with that still!
We decorated with hearts, hearts and even more hearts!
We made heart shaped pizzaโ€™s that we got to eat with our lunch.
The pizzaโ€™s were so good! ๐Ÿ˜
The tables were pretty and the friends loved the decorations.
We enjoyed the pizza and the rest of our lunches!!
Two days of pizza! ๐Ÿ˜‹

We enjoyed the pizza parties so much that on Wednesday we asked the teachers if we could make more pizza!!

Thank you all for everything you did to make our party days special!! We loved it all! ๐Ÿฅฐ

Snow Days!

Snow Days were so much fun! We got to throw snowballs at each other and go sledding and even made colorful snow. It was a blast and here are a few pictures of the fun!

January! Hello 2022!

Welcome to 2022! Itโ€™s a new year and we are enjoying our classroom. Play is what we do and we do it well. Here are a few pictures of the class at play.

We got to celebrate a couple of birthdays ๐Ÿฅณ with popsicles. It was one of the few warm days that we had and we all enjoyed it.
We love building and working together to create new things. Teamwork makes the dream work!
We love having Mr. Tim in our classroom. He does fun voices when he reads and we always want at least one more story. ๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“š
One of the stories that Mr. Tim has read to us is Abiyoyo. We watched his YouTube version a couple of times ( and asked for it a couple more). ๐Ÿช„๐Ÿช„
Ms. Kristenโ€™s patio is always a classroom favorite!Recently she has had colored rice which we have used for pouring and filling as well as dry erase markers and stencils.
Painting is a favorite pastime and it helps with our fine motor. ๐ŸŽจ The class has also been playing doctor in dramatic play. Our imagination is limitless!
Our writing center has always received a lot of love. The friends have have been making pictures for each other. We love playing outside on the structure where we get to run and climb and work on our gross motor skills.

Everyday we get a new chance to explore our environment and play with each other.

And we get to do it all again next week!

New Year, New Classroom

๐Ÿฅณ Happy New Year! ๐Ÿฅณ

It is a brand new year and there have been so many changes that we have gone through together. One big change has happened to the physical classroom itself! We moved some areas around and the flooring is different.

We have had a fun time this week exploring the differences and seeing what things are still the same.

Here is a quick look at what the classroom looks like now.

The top photo is what you see when you come in through the parking lot door. And the bottom is our block area.
Dramatic Play and the Writing Center have switched spots! (Mack moved as well).
The table area is pretty much the same; some of the shelves have moved a little.

While there have been many changes we hope that one thing stays the same. That the Room 3 friends still enjoy coming to school and playing with their friends. We know that we love seeing all of you.

We hope you have a great weekend and we will see you all soon!!
