January was full of winter activities! The kids had a great time exploring ice and doing Winter themed activities. We did science projects by making snow and experimenting with salt and ice! We read Winter stories and about how trees change during the Winter and art projects to follow.
We are so happy to be together again! This week, on the older pod patio, we’re enjoying a baby bubble bath activity. Check out our friends as they practice showing love to their babies, imitating all the love they have been shown by the ones who care for them.
“We love because he first loved us.” 1 John 4:19
We’ve also been hard at work painting, moving, building and exploring! Check us out!
This month on the Older Pod Patio we’ve been diving into all the fun that comes with this month’s winter theme. We’ve been targeting major skills and concepts from our January skills sheet—the colors blue and white, the shape square, knowledge of arctic animals and winter weather. Check out some of the awesome things we’ve been exploring!

Our specials this week were Pancakes with a side of blueberries and strawberries topped with whip cream or syrup! All the guests who attended loved their meal. Some were even interested in helping to prepare it while others just waited for their meals to be ready. Some guests ate so fast that the servers couldn’t get the guests their sides in time! Thank you to all the wonderful hands that helped prepare it and the wonderful donations that made it possible.
We had a wonderful time celebrating God’ gifts to us through our Stone Soup days! We began our days having wonderful parent volunteers come and read our story Fox Tale Soup. We then had fun filling in what we are thankful for on our craft! We also worked hard using our fine motor skills to cut and chop all our veggies for our soup! During our outside play time, our soup cooked and cooked, and at lunch we tried it and we LOVED it! Yum!
Thank you to our amazing parent helpers who came and helped assist in the festivities and those who brought ingredients to share! You made thus year a success!
Have a blessed Thanksgiving reflecting on all God have given in His perfect provision!
your Room 2 teachers ❤️
