“Indoor Gardening “

On April 2, we started “indoor planting.”  As you know young children lose interest fast, so we thought, “What will grow fast?”  Walaaah! “Beans!”  We read books about plant life cycle,  then planted beans in a zip lock bag and attentively watched for the outcome.  The children saw the different stages in a matter of 7 days.

We also planted many other plants; tomatoes, bell peppers, corn, winter squash, cucumbers, carrots, parsley, basil and chives.  “Come have a look.” We are hoping for the best garden ever.

Spring Has Sprung!

We have had such an amazingly fun start to springtime in Room 4! We have discovered everything about rainbows! We made them! We ate them! We even pulled rainbows out of Skittles! Ms. Alex took some gorgeous Easter photos of your little blessings as well as some jolly St. Patty’s Day ones. We also painted some stellar crosses! Last week we had the very special privilege of Avery’s dad dyeing beautiful eggs with us! Look for those delights in your parent mailboxes… here’s some evidence of all the fun we had. Oh, and don’t forget to ask your littles to tell you about Jesus’ death and resurrection. With the help of our Resurrection Eggs, we are able to retell the whole Easter Story!

LOVE and FRIENDSHIP

During the month the of February we shared different Bible stories about how God loves everyone, “1 John 4:8” and “Genesis 37-46.” We also read books such as “Love Monster,” “Llama, Llama I Love You,” and “Valentine’s Day Is Here.” We incorporated a few Valentine’s Day projects like a gift to take home, painting hearts, and making a special bag for valentine cards.For Chinese New Year we talked about Chinese characters, made decorations, introduced Chinese music, small drums and cooked fried rice and California Rolls. We read some great books to celebrate the occasion, “Bring in the New Year,” and “Dragon Dance.”

In addition, we are enjoying our block area and dress up corner and overall, having a wonderful time in preschool!

January Fun in Room 4

Welcome to the year “2018.” We pray for all our children, parents and families out there in need of God’s ever lasting love.

We started this month by exposing the children to the first letter of their name. We used cards with each child’s name, photo, and an enlarged letter of their first name to help them recognize both letters and name.

We have been talking about rain and how rain can be cold and sometimes turn into ice. We froze some water with Arctic animals. We touched the ice and had discussions on the kinds of animals inside. We also investigated what is happening to the ice with the sun. Continue reading “January Fun in Room 4”

Shine with the Light of Jesus

The month of October has come to an end and we in Class 4 did so many fun things with apples, pumpkins and many other fall items.

Cooking pumpkin power balls and pumpkin delight dessert while learning math and science at the same time was as sight to see and enjoy. Discovering and exploring different kinds of fall items was fun and messy! Reading different books and exposing children to new language and information was educational; among the books we read were “The Pumpkin Parable,” “The Biggest Pumpkin Ever,” “Pumpkin Patch Blessing,” and “Too Many Pumpkins.” We painted with Indian corn with fall colors and enjoyed our mini pumpkin patch! 😊We finished with a bag…YES, we were part of The Great California Shake Out.🤗 We practiced in class then we did the big practice by joining the big school.
