Room 2 Check-In: Fall!🍁🍂

Hi friends! Welcome back to Room 2’s blog post! We hope this finds you well and enjoying the fall season. Here in our classroom, we’ve really been enjoying all the fun activities and learning that comes with the fall season. God is so good and he’s been so faithful in our classroom.💫


To start off, our small groups have been going wonderfully! Our friends have really been working hard at each activity, and have already shown lots of growth in their ability to focus and stay on task. Friends have been practicing their prewriting skills and have even given letters a try!📝

We are SO proud of our friends for being so willing and excited to try and to not give up, even when the writing or drawing gets hard to do. We are working together as a team to continue building up our friends’ confidence to learn and take risks! One of our fun and risky activities this past week was digging into and dissecting a pumpkin!🎃

It was so fun exploring a pumpkin’s insides and feeling all of the textures! Lots of friends stepped out of their comfort zone and went for it! So fun!😊

We’ve also had so much fun during our outdoor times! One of our favorite activities was playing with a giant parachute! We loved seeing so many colors in the sun and Gavin our friends jump and dance. It was so beautiful!🌈


Also, today was an exciting day on our campus! We had our annual California Shake-Out! Thankfully, things went smoothly as we practiced our drills to prepare us for an earthquake. Our friends did so well! 

We are so excited for what’s ahead in the coming weeks leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday! We know God is present and continues to lead us with grace and love as our friends grow and learn in their classroom. It’s been such a gift to watch them take the lead and grow more confident and more able. The last couple of weeks, we’ve been talking about and memorizing Psalm 91:1. It’s so important to us that our friends really internalize God’s word and understand it to the best of their ability. We know that true identity of self is found in God’s word, so we want to continue to encourage growth in our classroom in this area as well. It’s pretty amazing, and we know that equipping them in this is a tool that they will have for the rest of their lives. We encourage you at home to join us in putting this to practice with us!📖☺️

Until next time, everyone! Blessings and we’ll see you around!❤️

In His love, 

Miss Wendy and the Room 2 Team.🍎

P.S. Enjoy the extras!📷🤗


Hi Friends!🤗


Welcome back to Room 2’s blog post! It’s so great to be back and check in with you on what we’ve up to in Room 2! 


It’s been amazing to get into our rhythm as a classroom! Above is a picture of our friends at Chapel. Every Wednesday, we go up to the “big school” and join the big kids for a time of worship at Chapel. We always have an amazing time singing our hearts out to Jesus!

This week was our first week doing small groups and curriculum in our classroom, and we must say, things are off to an excellent start. Friends worked on Journals, their alphabet, and also experimented with science, as we set up an activity involving cornstarch. It was a ton of fun!😃

Our kiddos loved seeing the process of the cornstarch turning from a liquid to a solid, as well as the slimy consistency. Pretty fascinating stuff!

We’ve also been very intentional about learning some bible verses with our friends! So far, our kiddos have memorized John 10:11 and John 14:6. We encourage you to ask them about it at home and practice it together as a family. We’re really proud of our friends, and we hope you’ll help us at home by continuing to encourage them with us. Next week we will be memorizing Psalm 23:1. It’s so beautiful to learn God’s word together! 📖 ❤️


We are so happy with the way our friends are beginning to make this classroom their home away from home, and we are very thankful to have each one of them with us. They are a huge blessing to each of us and seeing them thrive is our heart’s desire this year. We are continuing to draw nearer to The Lord as we take each day, one step at a time. We know God’s heart for Room 2 is that each friend would grow and learn each day, not just academically, but in their heart, character, and identity in Him, and we are continuing to go after that everyday. 


We look forward to more adventures as we get ready for Fall! Keep checking back in with us, and we’ll see ya next week.☺️

In His Love, 

Miss Wendy and the Room 2 Team 🍎


Welcome To Room 2!❤️

Hi there, friends!

We are SO excited to officially welcome the 2017-2018 PreK-2 class to Room 2!🍎😊

We are blessed beyond belief to have started our year so strong already! We’ve had a fantastic week getting acquainted with each one of our new friends, and our hearts are elated at the thought of how God will move in our classroom this year. We are so expectant to see Him do amazing things in the lives of each Room 2 friend, as they learn and grow. 

It’s a sincere privilege and honor to be back into the swing of things here. We simply wanted to take a minute to send out this quick message as a reminder that this blog is and will continue to be a fantastic way to stay connected with us each week. We will try to post weekly so that you are in-the-know of what goes on in our classroom.

We want you to know that even before school started we as a team prayed over our Room 2 friends and their families, and we will continue to do so as the year progresses. We hope to become like family along side you, as we get to both teach your children, as well as lead them closer to Christ. What we want and hope for is to be a team with you, to ensure the most successful year for our Room 2 Friends. 
Because it’s our first week, we didn’t have much of an opportunity for very many pictures, but here are just a few that we managed to capture. We’ll check back in next week!

Sincerely,

Miss Wendy and the Room 2 Team❤️
P.S. Enjoy!☺️

Dear Room 2 Friends☺️, 

We want to take a moment to say THANK YOU, from the bottom of our hearts! We have had the most incredible year, and we really believe that was due to the teamwork and family environment that we built amongst each other throughout the year! Jesus’ heart has shined so bright in our classroom, and His love has been ever so evident in everything we’ve done. It’s impossible to not see how God is on the move among this generation of tiny humans, and we are confident that He has such an amazing call for each of their lives. We pray that as they go and grow, they will remain in His love and truth for their lives. 

It’s the sweetest honor for us to have been given the opportunity to walk along side each of them, in this tiny season of their lives that is preschool! It’s been our deepest joy to love them, teach them, and serve them. As we say goodbye, we leave you with this beautiful slideshow of our year together, along with our Room 1 neighbors. We hope that, like us, you’ll always remember our time together learning, growing, and  worshiping God as a family each day, for all He has done, for all He is doing, and all He will do.❤
All our deepest love, 

Ms. Wendy💗, Ms. Daisy💛, and Ms. Kira💚.

April’s Check-In!😊

Hi, Room 2 friends! We hope this finds you well! 


It’s been a while since we’ve last checked in! There’s been a lot of transition happening, as we prepare for the end of the school year… Can you believe we’ve made it to the end?! Time flies when you’re having this much fun! We wouldn’t have it any other way. The Lord has been such a faithful and good Father to us in Room 2, every step of the way. His heart for this classroom is so evident!❤

Haha, we love this picture of us together!❤

Last month we had an amazing time together as we celebrated Easter! It was humbling and powerful to remember Jesus dying for our sins on the cross, and then being raised from the dead in victory! He defeated death and sin, all because He LOVED us… We all were the joy set before Him, and it was His joy to do what He did, because we are who he thought about as He took on every sin, hanging on the cross. And only He could’ve done it! And now, and throughout all of eternity, we can and will proclaim that LOVE HAS WON!!! Because the best part happened after the cross; 3 days later, HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD! And He is ALIVE, right now!! And His victory is our victory!!! Amen!❤

We celebrated Easter as a Room 2 family, going to chapel, reading books, singing songs, doing art, and we ended by eating together, as a family. It was so beautiful! We want to thank the parents who contributed food, decorations, crafts, books, and most importantly, their time. It meant so much to our classroom!😊 

Next up, after Easter, was our last field trip of the school year! Our whole Room 2 crew headed out to the La Brea Tar Pits for an amazing day outside, exploring! We learned about all kinds of fossils, including mammoths, dire wolves, and sabertooth cats! It was fascinating to explore together, as we made the park our outdoor classroom for the day. We had so much fun! 

To this day, paleontologists are actively digging for fossils in the asphalt (tar) that is still fresh, after thousands of years! 

We also enjoyed lunch together under a nice tree that gave us plenty of shade from the heat!🌳☺️


It was so fun to explore inside as well! There were lots of bones to see, and even a station to experience what it feels like to be stuck in asphalt(tar)!

And check out the size of these fossils, in comparison to our classroom!

We are SO incredibly thankful for everyone who came out on this last trip with us! It was amazing to spend the day together! We loved every minute! We are so thankful for the many opportunities God has given us to fellowship together this year. Here in Room 2, we have a phrase that we use: “Teamwork makes the dream work!” And we can honestly say that being a team with the Room 2 parents this year was one of the best blessings we could’ve experienced. Thank you for your time and effort. We know how much you love because you constantly showed us! And seeing you present with us, was the sweetest encouragement. God’s love has remained perfectly constant each day! What a gift!


As we prepare our hearts to leave Room 2, we hope you know how deeply we’ve loved this classroom this year, and how intentionally we’ve prayed for unity, healing, and love, as we’ve grown together academically. Though academics have always remained important, our focus has also remained on The Heart; God’s heart for Room 2, and Room 2’s heart for Him and each other. It’s been a beautiful season, and now it’s coming to an end… But wow, how excited we are for what Jesus has in store for us all in this next season. We go from glory to glory. Amen.❤

With Love, 

Miss Wendy and the Room 2 Team

P.S. As always, candids! Enjoy!


Happy April!💐

Hi there from Room 2! 😊 

We hope you’re well and blessed! We’ve definitely been having TONS  of fun here in Room 2! Can you believe the school year will be over in just a few short weeks?! We definitely don’t want to think about that just yet… Not when there’s still so much fun to be had.😎


Last week was a huge treat for our entire school as we were visited by two police men, who came to speak to us about their job! It was so exciting to have them teach us about their gadgets, general safety, and about their vehicles! Some of our kiddos even had the chance to see inside! SO. COOL.🚓🏍

It was such a great day! We’re so thankful for the visit and hope to have more educational visits like it in the future.

Meanwhile, inside the classroom, we’ve been hard at work as we finish up our very last unit of curriculum! So exciting!!Our friends have been working hard, learning their shapes and letters as we conclude our last unit. They’re doing so well! We are super proud of their progress!!📚🖍☺️

Also, Room 2 is SO excited to be diving into the fascinating world of dinosaurs!! Our friends have been learning about dinosaurs, their anatomy, and their lifestyles! We saw the children develop an interest in dinosaurs and took the opportunity to encourage their curiosity to learn! It’s been such an amazing adventure. WE ARE LOVING IT!!


Our friends have also been busy developing their culinary skills!😉 Last week’s menu was dinosaur bones made from dough, and this week we made dinosaur eggs out of rice crispy treats! So yummy!!🥖🥚

We’re so thankful with God for the amazing gift He gives us each day, to learn and grow. Our hearts are elated and full of praise for the amazing ways His heart shines in our room. We’ve become such a family in our classroom, and as we head into these last few weeks of school, our hearts are deeply thankful and pensive at the memories we’ve made so far. The love, compassion, kindness, and overall growth that God has done in us will always remain, and that is the highest and sweetest blessing. We can’t wait to see what else these next few weeks have in store for us! Easter is next week, and we have one last adventurous field trip coming up in a couple weeks. We can’t wait to see you there.❤


Blessings and TONS of love,

Miss Wendy and the Room 2 Team💕

p.s. As always, some extras! Enjoy!🌞


Worship with Room1&2!❤

Shamrockin’ 🎵

The younger pod had a fabulous Saint Patty’s day on Friday with green yogurt, courtesy of Mrs. Terri, lots of outdoor fun, and a special surprise visit from our dear friend Ms. Jessica who came with a very special gift for our studio!! 


We have been explaining the folklore around Saint Patrick’s Day to our little ones with the concept of “luck” and being “lucky” really meaning “blessed”. We’ve focused and talked at length about what a blessing is and what it means to be blessed- that we are all God’s children, brothers and sisters here to support and build one another up. We understand that we are here to enjoy the marvelous resources the Lord has set before us in our unique and individual ways as each one of us has been fearfully and wonderfully made, unique by God’s design. We put great importance on counting our blessings and living with an attitude of gratitude throughout life here on Earth. When we say we are “lucky” we truly mean blessed, and we are ever grateful for the grace of God, and for our brothers and sisters who let the Holy Spirit’s light shine so brightly through them. 

The teachers were blessed with an over the top “teacher treats” spread on Friday by the hard working Parents of Room 2, complete with a green St. Patty’s Day theme! What a marvelous way to end the week and enjoy the holiday. (Thank you Room 2 Parents!) 💚
