We are so excited to be back together at the preschool and to have our very first Chapel of 2021!
Today we discussed what we remembered about the Christmas Story and the birth of Jesus. Where he was born and who Jesus’ first visitors were. Then we learned about the Wise Men from the East and read Matthew 2:1-12 as well as the Rhyme Bible. We learned how the Wise Men (Magi) followed the star from far away to find the new born king (Messiah). The children had a wonderful time learning the first two verses of We Three Kings and discussing the three gifts that the Wise Men brought. It was a fantastic way to start a new year together.
Hello Room 1A parents! Here it is – The moment we have all been waiting for, HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS PERFORMANCES! They turned out GREAT! Their wonderful personalities are showcased throughout these videos! We performed Baby Jesus, We Love You and Bethel’s Little Drummer Boy! They practiced so much for these performances, you should all be extremely proud! We know we are! 🙂
Hello Room 1A families! We wanted to share these memories with you! We had two wonderful Stone Soup days! Stone Soup is all about understanding the importance of sharing and community. We strive to teach our students to be selfless and kind. It’s all about coming together as a team to accomplish our goals! They loved helping to make the soup. They shredded chicken, cut celery and carrots, watched the soup cook and, the best part, enjoyed the soup for lunch! We hope you enjoy these pictures as much as we enjoyed taking them! Thank you to everyone who brought their Stone Soup items and the Tavey Family for donating the cutest Thanksgiving bowls!
As we reflect today on all the wonderful blessings we have in our lives we give thanks to God for every single one of them. I am so very thankful for each and every one of you and your beautiful children and I thank God for bring you into my life.
Wow I can't believe day 2 is about over. Time flys when you are having fun. Today we enjoyed more of our farm activities as well as welcoming Farmer Greg again. This time he brought some sheep to add to the wonderful group of animals he had brought yesterday. All the animals were so vocal today they were fun to hear. We also had a hoe down and had Ms. Joy come in and read us a fun story before lunch. What a busy day. Enjoy some of the pictures and video from today's fun.
Our kiddos got to pet ducks, sheep, goats and a HUGE horse! Our friends did an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G job at using gentle hands, calm voices and walking feet. Thank you to all the parents for participating with bringing our kiddos all dressed up as farmers!
We also had a sheriff in the house! 😍 We encourage all of our parents to engage in some discussion with your kids about their experience!
Here are some questions that can get you guys all started:
1. What was your favorite thing about Blondie the horse?
2. What kind of food were you feeding the animals?
3. What is something new you learned about animals today?
We hope you enjoy the pictures! Happy 3-day weekend!
Our first Farm Day was a success! We enjoyed everything from playing farm bingo to story time with Mr. Tim. But I think what made it even more special was our special visit from Farmer Greg and some of his farm animals. Take a look at the fun we had today. Can’t wait until tomorrow for part 2.
