This week has been a quiet one but still a fun one. The big school is on Spring Break and while the cats away the mice will play! We got to go to the Big Field on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.
We took our blankets and had a nice snack on the field and Ms. Sheri read us a couple of stories and then we got to run and play!
Pinkalicious is always a favorite book to read. Ms. Sheri also read Baby Beluga and The Poky Little Puppy.
Red Light, Green Light is a favorite game for the Big Field. Although sometimes we forget that red means stop.
We also just like to run and chase each other. I don’t know who is more tired at the end, the kids or the teachers.
This week we have been very focused on birthday parties. So in the sandbox we have decided that it is everyone’s birthday and we had the biggest party ever!
While this week has been so much fun, we can’t even imagine how much fun next week will be when we celebrate The Week of the Young Child. Each day will have its own exciting new theme!
Today we had a very green day! We decided to combine St. Patrick’s day with Green Eggs and Ham. From the first yard time to the end of the day we were all about green.
When we out to the yard we discovered we could make Shamrock crowns!
When we went inside we read Green Eggs and Ham and then we made some. ( The teachers made the bacon beforehand). Ms. Sheri and Ms. Terri rocked it!
We also used green and gold for our decorations because of St. Patrick’s Day and because they are our colors for March.
We got to crack eggs and then we made them green.
We played with play dough that had green sparkles in it and made Shamrock shapes.
After nap we went outside and played with green and gold legos! We also matched Shamrocks and blew bubbles.
Today was a day filled with dancing and laughing and a lot of fun.
And we get to do it all again tomorrow!
Practicing staying safe is an important part of our preschool curriculum. This includes periodic fire/earthquake drills. On Thursday, March 11 the entire preschool took part in a fire drill. Everyone exited the preschool to muster up in the preschool parking lot for a quick headcount. The children did a fantastic job listening to teachers and we had an incredibly smooth drill. Great work everyone!
Room 3 has been very interested in dinosaurs recently: being them, playing with them and discovering them.
The past two days we have watched a short video called Dinosaur Bones. All about where dinosaurs lived and how they lived.
We watched the video on Wednesday and then when the kids came in Thursday morning they sat in front of the screen and pretended to watch it again.
We have been playing with dinosaurs and pretending to be them for a couple of weeks and we are learning things along the way.
Playing is such an important part of what we do at school. During playtime we learn to work together, share, and express ourselves in positive ways.
Building with blocks is a new favorite pastime. We also have dinosaur bones in our sensory table that we discover together!
Imaginative play happens quite often. We play puppies and kittens almost everyday.
We love the sandbox and all the things we make there.
Bristle blocks and dinosaurs are also a fan favorite.
We enjoy playing with each other! It’s the best part of our day. We greet each other enthusiastically when we arrive and we cheerfully say goodbye at the end of the day.
We are building relationships everyday through work and play.
