April’s Check-In!๐Ÿ˜Š

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!โค

Haha, we love this picture of us together!โค

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!โค

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!๐Ÿ˜Š 

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!๐ŸŒณโ˜บ๏ธ

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.โค

With Love, 

Miss Wendy and the Room 2 Team

P.S. As always, candids! Enjoy!

Happy April!๐Ÿ’

Hi there from Room 2! ๐Ÿ˜Šย 

We hope you’re well and blessed! We’ve definitely been having TONS ย 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.๐Ÿ˜Ž

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.๐Ÿš“๐Ÿ

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!!๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ–โ˜บ๏ธ

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!๐Ÿ˜‰ Last week’s menu was dinosaur bones made from dough, and this week we made dinosaur eggs out of rice crispy treats! So yummy!!๐Ÿฅ–๐Ÿฅš

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.โค

Blessings and TONS of love,

Miss Wendy and the Room 2 Team๐Ÿ’•

p.s. As always, some extras! Enjoy!๐ŸŒž

Worship with Room1&2!โค

Shamrockin’ ๐ŸŽต

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!) ๐Ÿ’š

Descanso Gardens๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒธ

Welcome back to Room 2’s blog post!

We had an absolutely wonderful time last week, exploring Descanso Gardens on our field trip! It felt great to get out of the classroom for a change and marvel at God’s creation together. We loved being outside, learning the names of plants, trees, and simply getting to enjoy nature. God is so good, and provided us with the perfect weather to experience it in.๐ŸŒพ

Our Room 2 friends got to take in some beautiful views! The cherry blossoms were particularly gorgeous!

We loved taking in some fresh air and especially loved having moms and dads accompanying us! Parents, you always make our trips extra special. Thanks for making the time to be there! We love being a team with you.๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿƒ

God is so good… He gives us so much. It can be hard in our busy lives to really make time to sit with Him and thank Him. But by making time to be outside and to fellowship with friends, we are doing just that. We are thanking Him. We must try remember to take a moment and thank Him. He’s worthy of our deepest praise and gratitude. He’s the Good Shepherd, who knows us; he knows our deepest needs, our deepest wants, and dreams. There isn’t a single detail of our lives that He doesn’t know about. Knowing this allows us to have peace and to hope, no matter where we might be in our journey with Him.๐ŸŒฑ

We leave you with this last thought, out of the book of Psalms…

“The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name…” Psalm 23:1-3โค

We pray you are encouraged to look around and take a few moments to spend time with Jesus, wherever you might be. Here in Room 2, we don’t take those moments for granted. Until next time…๐Ÿ’›

That’s Amore!โค

Welcome back, folks! It’s so good to have you back to check in with us here in Room 2! We had such a fun and busy month in February! Can’t believe it’s gone!๐Ÿ˜…

This past month, we intentionally celebrated God’s Love…and boy, was it beautiful! We are so blessed to be a part of such a strong Christian preschool community, here at PCS. We don’t take it for granted! We had fun making pizzas, crafts, and sharing treats! God is LOVE, and Room 2 made sure to show it!

We have been continuing to teach about God’s love in Room 2, and what that looks like in our everyday life, especially here in our classroom. We are teaching friends that Jesus, Himself, is love, and without Him and His example, we simply can’t love well. We need His heart. We need His eyes for each other. We simply need Him- everyday, more and more.โค

Knowing Jesus changes everything, and we want to keep being a classroom that welcomes the Holy Spirit daily. We want to be led by His heart everyday, and be the kind of classroom that changes the atmosphere with His love, wherever we might be. This is something we will continue to aspire to.โค๏ธ 

We are so proud of our friends as they continue to pursue Jesus to the best of their ability in our room. We as teachers are inspired daily to go deeper into God’s love and heart, as we see our friends growing and learning. God is amazing and we are constantly believing and praying for His heart to shine in and through our room as we learn together, and grow together!โœจ

We leave you with this:

A beautiful verse, and an encouragement and invitation to you to dive into God’s heart and love with us! Amazing things happen when we partner with Him… God bless you, and we will check back in soon!โค

Welcome Back, Ms. Daisy!๐ŸŒผ

We are THRILLED to welcome back Ms. Daisy!!๐Ÿ˜ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย  ย 

Room 2 has their Lead Teacher back in the classroom, and the crew is all back together again! We are so thankful for God’s faithfulness throughout Ms. Daisy’s time away. Now she is back and feeling healthy and strong! We celebrate this victory of health and wellness in her life, and we want to thank all the parents who prayed with us and who were so loving and intentional toward Ms. Daisy, especially with providing meals. That was such a kind and loving way to show your support, and we are so thankful! May God bless you over and over for honoring Him through that gesture.๐Ÿด๐Ÿ’•Last week, Room 2 started Unit 6 in our curriculum: The ย Nightingale. The Nightingale tells the story of an emperor who loved a nightingale’s music so much, that he had his people capture it and keep it in a gold cage. Our classroom friends love the new story! Aside from learning from a new story, our friends also had the opportunity to intentionally practice their writing skills using dry-erase boards and trays of salt! How cool is that? Take a look!๐Ÿ–

Room 2 friends did so well as they practiced recognizing and memorizing their letters. We are so proud of them–it is always an accomplishment!โ˜บ๏ธ

As we do each week, we headed over to Chapel to worship Jesus with the big kids on Wednesday!๐ŸŽถ

Lastly, we want to share about something really important in Room 2 these days. We’ve been focusing on the topic of kindness, and what that means. What does it mean to be kind? What does it mean to treat friends and loved ones with kindness? Here in Room 2, we are doing our very best to teach our friends about God’s heart for people, and how Jesus teaches us to love one another and show kindness. Friends are quick to respond with examples of how to be kind. One friend shared that it is kind ย to share toys in Room 2, while another friend said it’s kind to help friends if they get hurt, or help them to put away beds after nap time. We as teachers will continue to encourage this discussion, as well as practice it as much as possible. We believe that even at such a young age, friends can continue to thrive as they learn about kindness, and how that is God’s heart for us and His desire for one another. We are one body and family in Christ, and as we learn, grow, play, and pray together as a classroom each day, God’s love and kindness for us is something that we hope to instill in Room 2’s heart. We invite you to join us by talking about kindness at home, as we continue to grow in this area.โค Ephesians 4:32

As we start the week with a little bit of rain โ˜”๏ธ we hope that you are filled again with wonder at the goodness and faithfulness of such a loving God. All His promises are Yes and Amen. We pray that you are strengthened, encouraged, inspired, and filled again as you go about your week. May we be so filled that we overflow with the truths of God’s heart for us and His heart for each other. Blessings!๐Ÿ’›
