Room 5 has had a blast this month growing together in our VBS summer school “Passport to Learning” program! We have welcomed many new friends to school and are enjoy all the fun water play that summer has to offer!
We enjoyed a unit on France and Mexico, we had a private petting zoo, and our own outdoor fiesta complete with piñata and all! Next week while the preschool explores the culture of Germany, Room 5 will be taking a “layover” in Madagascar!
Here is a quick slideshow of the past two weeks… it’s been fun and fast!
We are forming wonderful loving bonds together in the younger pod as we play and worship together in the Lord’s name. Have a blessed weekend and stay cool everybody!
Wow! What a fantastic Site Work Day! Our amazing group of parents and teachers showed up with coffee, doughnuts and work gloves on ready to beautify the school. We are so blessed!

Thanks again for all your help!!
Room 5 is getting in spirit of autumn! We’ve incorporated the seasonal theme into our dramatic play center with a costume dress-up station, into our art projects with marbled leaf printing, and even into our sensory bin with orange corn kernels and black and white striped sunflower seed shells. Songs like “Five Little Pumpkins Sitting on a Vine” have been added into our morning meeting routine, and there’s much more to come!

Check out our fantastic fall sensory bin!
We’re still enjoying our time in the outdoor classroom before the weather turns cold, and Team 6 has a big hit with their Western themed dramatic play center. Room 5 friends decided to put on their hats and ride the “tractor”…Yeehaw!
We know autumn is a rich time of year where family traditions and special customs bring us all closer together. We would love to hear about your own family’s traditions and what you like to do together as we enter this special season. Pictures, stories, special dishes that you like to make can all be incorporated into our curriculum to help build on the family values that make this time of year so special to us all.
Blessings from Room 5, and happy fall!!
