In preparation for Stone Soup we began reading Fox Tail Soup by Tony Bonning. We also tasted and painted with all kinds of vegetables. The children had lots of fun using prior knowledge from our story to make their own Stone Soup in our dramatic play area. They had the opportunity to practice holding a knife and cutting pretend Velcro vegetables. We had the chance to utilize our sensory table by giving the children a chance to wash and scrub some toy vegetables. With this lesson the children learned that vegetables are healthy and nutritious and will make their bodies big and strong Thank you for our amazing parent who volunteered and made some amazing soup.
How awesome it was to have the farm come to us. While our older classrooms went to Underwood Farm we stayed behind and enjoyed a fun day riding on Wagon, picking some fresh carrots, petting farm animals such as pigs, goats, sheep, bunnies and an alpaca in a farmer attire. Fun, fun, funplaceholder://
Classroom #4 explored, investigated and compared the outside and inside of apples.. The children enjoyed used a graph to record how many red, green, yellow or gala apples we collected. The kind do also used their five senses to taste the different kinds of apples, cooked apple sauce and apple dumplings, they had fun reading, singing, counting apples and the seeds we found inside the different kinds of pumpkins.Cooking was delicious,
By nature , children this age can be more concerned about their own needs and even act selfishly. Often they refuse to share anything that interest them, and they do not easily interact with other children, even when playing side by side, unless it’s to let a playmate know that they would like a toy or object for themselves. This is a normal behavior for most two’s.
Some of our children in class are beginning to interact with their peers. You will see some of them engaging in pretend play. Pretend play builds language , thinking, many social skills when children take on roles and develop their own ideas and stories. Two year olds are also capable of empathy, understanding the feelings of others.

What fun it was to see the little ones make their morning walk to the big campus and see their faces glow as they saw the big bounce house. They all worked really hard at climbing, crawling and making their way threw the corn maze, many of them enjoyed the challenge of bouncing, jumping and finding their way out.
So much to do in so little time. That’s right we have two more weeks left and our summer fun will come to an end. We want to welcome our new and returning students, we hope you enjoy the fun activities, shows and water play to come soon. May Gods blessings follow you every where you go.

“Yes;” in some parts of the world summer can be cold and there are animals, plants and people that live and enjoy the cold, cold water and weather. That is what we read and learn on week 3. We are learning to listen and do by using rhythm sticks and the music CD by Hap Palmer. The children are getting really good at listening, following request, count the taps and keeping the beats.
These Art activities kept the children entertained, yarn on a stick, “How Clever”.Making animal prints by rubbing crayons on paper with forest animal stencils. They are inspired to find bible stories that we read and enjoy these week.
