Bear Party Fun!

This month in Room 1 has been “beary” busy as we have been discovering the wonderful world of Corduroy! Centering around the lovable story by Don Freeman, we have been learning how to retell stories, lace, draw lines and patterns, stamp, paint and create our own adventure using characters we know, all under the guise of having fun with our friend Corduroy! To culminate our time with our fuzzy friend, we had a Bear Party! We made bear hats, button necklaces, bear hand puppets, button frames, played with small bears and their dens, ate Teddy Grahams (of course) and had a special snuggle area with pillows and plenty of bear books to go around. We then had the immense privilege of having the author of many new Corduroy books, B. G. Hennessy, come and read to us! We went on a bear hunt using the incredibly fun Greg & Steve song and ended our time watching the Corduroy movie with our own teddy bears! It has been such a great first month in Room 1 and there are so many more adventures in store, we can “bearly stand it! 😉

Kinder Camp Farewell

Can you believe Kinder Camp is nearly over? It’s been a phenomenal summer with lots of water play, crafts, dance parties, Bible stories, hula hooping, coloring, building, and lots and lots of Curious George! We hope your child had as much fun as we did! May God be in the center of your next adventure in Transitional Kinder or Kindergarten!

“Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”

Matthew 5:16

Kinder Camp Fun in the Sun!

Greetings from Kinder Camp!

It is officially summer! There’s so much to share about our Kinder Camp experience so far!

Our mornings begin with morning meeting, and after going over the calendar, reading a Bible story and discussing the plans for the day, we jump into small groups. We’ve been reviewing letter and sound recognition, and writing our alphabet. Then we have journal writing as well as mathematics and number recognition.

After having a delicious lunch and playing outside with some super fun toys, we spend time learning about God during Bible and worship. We’ve learned about Adam and Eve, Noah’s Ark, and the Tower of Babel. We continue the day with arts and crafts. Using our imagination and creativity, so far, we’ve created colorful megaphones, visors, and windsocks!

Fridays are special days of the week! Last week we saw an “Oceans Rock” show. When the show finished, we got to take home two ocean memorabilia! Yay! To end the day, we watched Curious George 2 and had popcorn! Yum! This Friday we got to see a Juggler performance. It was great! In the afternoon, we watched A Goofy Movie and had popcorn for snack!

Let’s not forget the best part of Kinder Camp…water play! To keep cool in the sun, we’ve ran through sprinklers and water slides! We also had a Whale Bubble dance party!

In between all these activities, we are celebrating summer birthdays, having special lunch Fridays, and having dance parties in the classroom!

We’ve been having so much fun and its only been two weeks! We have six more weeks of fun-filled activities in store! So let’s put on our swimsuits and sunscreen, and let’s keep having some fun in the sun! 

Room 1 Holy Week Festivities!

Room 1 has had a very busy and exciting week in preparation for Easter! Each day we had a special activity to help our kiddos remember the true meaning of Easter: Jesus’ death and resurrection!

Monday we watercolor painted wooden crosses and wrote our name in the middle to remind us that Jesus died for us! We are so thankful for Jesus’ sacrifice for us that we made a big Thank You card for Jesus and took turns signing our names. We even played Resurrection Bingo!

Tuesday we had worship with Ms. Sarah and her guitar, with special guest Ms. Joy helping with hand motions. We sang our favorite Jana Alayra songs to worship our king Jesus!

Wednesday we went to an all-school Easter chapel and then had a Resurrection Egg hunt on the big field. We had a great class discussion as we retold the story opening up the eggs one at a time.

Thursday we ended our Holy Week celebrations by watching The Beginner’s Bible: The Story of Easter movie!

We hope you have a blessed Easter weekend and take time to thank Jesus and worship Him… just like we did all week long!

“And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

‭‭Philippians‬ ‭2:8-11‬

The Doctor is In!

Room 1 friends had a blast in our dramatic play: Curious George Goes to the Hospital! Our play area, which is based off the 1966 book by Margret and H. A. Rey, helps us practice being kind and caring of others as well as understanding body awareness. It all began after the friends first heard Curious George’s adventure on audio story and it has become a classroom favorite ever since! We brainstormed what we would need in a hospital and even participated in painting parts of the scenery as relayed in the original story! Check out the ways we have been growing in our knowledge of the way God made our bodies and how we can demonstrate love as we attend to the needs of others!

“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you” Ephesians 4:32
