Room 3 had an awesome time making delicious and healthy smoothies. What better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s day than to make a green smoothie? We used peaches, pineapples, mangos, strawberries, bananas, spinach, and coconut milk to create our concoction. Many of our kids loved learning about St. Patrick’s day and they certainly loved drinking the smoothie.
We have been having a fantastic time in Room 3 and are so excited to once again be studying trains. Trains and three-year-olds go together like macaroni and cheese. This year’s class was so excited to take our traditional Gold Line trip. We would like to give a special thanks to all the parents who participated and made this trip possible. It’s full steam ahead and we can’t wait to see where trains will take us this next!

We have been having a fantastic time celebrating the month of love here in Room 3. On Valentine’s Day and the Wednesday after, we made scrumptious heart shaped French Toast with Strawberry Jam, Yum! We would like to give a special thank you to Amelie’s Mom and Dad for coming in to cook with us on Wednesday. In addition to our cooking project, we also decorated Valentine treat bags to collect our Valentine’s Day loot. Thank you to everyone who gave so generously, the kids loved all their special Valentines. We still have two weeks left in our month long celebration of love and we look forward to seeing what comes next.
Room 3 had a lot of fun over the last couple of days before the long break. In celebration of the holidays to come, we had the chance to dress up in our jammies, make some Christmas colored Rice Krispie treats and played with powdered snow! It was an incredibly fun and exciting week and we wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We look forward to seeing all of you in 2017 and until then, stay safe and stay warm!
Last week, the friends in Room 3 were able to experience something a bit newer on the Big Field. Previously, they had fun playing with small parachute men, but now they got the chance to play with a gigantic parachute! We played a “Cat and Mouse” game and had fun running under the parachute. Look forward to seeing more fun games and activities in the near future!
To celebrate how thankful we are for pumpkins, we decided to let them go with a bang. Well, it’s more of a thump, but the end result is the same: scattered pumpkin and seeds galore. Brave volunteers stepped onto the ladder and began dropping the pumpkins. Children from the entire school witnessed this spectacle and we all wished them goodbye… at least until next year.
