Summer Sails Away

The final week of our Fun in the Sun program has been a blast! We’ve been hard at work creating seashell art, pumpin’ and splashing, enjoying snow cones, singing fun VBS songs to the Lord, and of course, building friendships and memories that will last even after summer sails away! Check out some fun highlights from our final week together. We look forward to seeing you and your little ones in August for an exciting new school year!

SUMMER FUN SEVENTH WEEK

This week has been a loud week, hehehe! We took out different kids of instruments maracas, tambourines, guiros, bells and coffee cans to use as drums and of course the musicians. Oh, boy! They had a great time shaking, tapping and playing different tunes. The kids loved it.

The kids are always open and willing to try new stuff.

Snow cone, snow cone, I want a snow cone? I am telling you the kids loved Tuesdays.

Playing in the sand is always a favorite in our class too. They specially enjoy it when is wet and they can mold it or can creat different things such as cake, soup or a drink for their favorite teacher.

LAST WEEK OF SUMMER

We can’t believe we are saying goodbye to all of our Room 4 kids! It has been a blessing and such a great pleasure having all of them in our care. Most of our friends have been with us since August 2020, while some came to us just this summer. It is our hope and pray that God would continue to bless all of our families in their adventure over the next school year. We will especially be praying for all those families who will be traveling during our time apart. Thanks for a wonderful summer!

Our last Pop Up Verse for this week is: “Then I hear the Lord’s voice saying, ’whom should I send, and who will go for us? I said, “I’m here; send me.” Isaiah6:8

Wave Word: God sends

Week 6! The Pirate Pals

This week was our Pirate week! We looked for treasure in the quarry and ran from sharks in the structure area. We wore our best Pirate clothes and had fun!

Snow Cones are always well loved 🥰!
We love playing with each other and building and creating. On Wednesday we celebrated a birthday (Mine!) and we had popsicles. Thanks for celebrating with me everyone! 💕
Thursday was our official Pirate Party day! There were so many awesome Pirate outfits!
It was so hot we had popsicles in the afternoon as well.
Mr. Tim came and read us some Pirate stories while we ate afternoon snack.
Today our internet wasn’t working so we didn’t get to watch Jake and the Never Land Pirates. Instead we watched Where the Wild Things Are, Goodnight Gorilla and a Mickey Mouse short as well as a couple of music videos from chapel songs.

SIX WEEKS OF SUMMER FUN

Six fun weeks have passed and the kids are looking forward to what is to come the next day. As you may know the big yard has been split into two sections this school year, because of CIVID.

One section is divided where the kids can use and enjoy the bikes, dig in the sand and do many diferent fun water activities.

The other section is divided at the wood chips where the kids can enjoy climbing on the structure, use the contraction zone, plant or water the garden, use the manipulative tables and use the water tables for the kids to keep cool. Every week we rotate the use of the yard with class room #5. The kids are now familiar with the schedules.

Lots of fun things happen inside our class room and outside. Ms. Kristen enthusiastically plans and sets up incredible and amazing patio.

FIVE WEEKS INTO SUMMER

Garden news. YES! Carrots in the Summer. The kids were watering the garden and saw the orange color of the carrots coming out of the ground. They got a chance to pull the carrot out, washed it and enjoy the sweet taste of our fresh carrot, planted and cared for by room 4 kids.

“SPIRIT DAY,” we have Chapel with Mr. Tim on Wednesday’s. Our Verse “This is my Son whom I dearly love: I find happiness in him.”

Week 5!

It’s the 2nd half of summer and what a week it has been! We watched a movie (Octonauts), ate popcorn, danced to chapel songs, had a bubble party, listened to Tiny Bubbles, played with water, had snow cones and homemade popsicles!

We learned about when John the Baptist baptized Jesus. Someone told a story about being baptized by their mom by being dunked in a pool!
We watched Octonauts!
Homemade popsicles were a hit! 100% fruit juice for the win!
Just a few friends taking a bite out of Ms. Kira’s cheeseburger backpack.

Thank you all for another fun filled week! This week we are gearing up for Pirate Week! We have been treasure hunting in the quarry and we look forward to a week filled with pirate adventures.
