Valentines Day

Valentines Day has happened and it was all about love! ❤️💕💖💜 Loving each other, loving our families and loving God!

We still have ice in our yard from snow days! We have been playing with that still!
We decorated with hearts, hearts and even more hearts!
We made heart shaped pizza’s that we got to eat with our lunch.
The pizza’s were so good! 😁
The tables were pretty and the friends loved the decorations.
We enjoyed the pizza and the rest of our lunches!!
Two days of pizza! 😋

We enjoyed the pizza parties so much that on Wednesday we asked the teachers if we could make more pizza!!

Thank you all for everything you did to make our party days special!! We loved it all! 🥰

Snow Days!

Snow Days were so much fun! We got to throw snowballs at each other and go sledding and even made colorful snow. It was a blast and here are a few pictures of the fun!

Happy February!

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!

January! Hello 2022!

Welcome to 2022! It’s a new year and we are enjoying our classroom. Play is what we do and we do it well. Here are a few pictures of the class at play.

We got to celebrate a couple of birthdays 🥳 with popsicles. It was one of the few warm days that we had and we all enjoyed it.
We love building and working together to create new things. Teamwork makes the dream work!
We love having Mr. Tim in our classroom. He does fun voices when he reads and we always want at least one more story. 📖📚
One of the stories that Mr. Tim has read to us is Abiyoyo. We watched his YouTube version a couple of times ( and asked for it a couple more). 🪄🪄
Ms. Kristen’s patio is always a classroom favorite!Recently she has had colored rice which we have used for pouring and filling as well as dry erase markers and stencils.
Painting is a favorite pastime and it helps with our fine motor. 🎨 The class has also been playing doctor in dramatic play. Our imagination is limitless!
Our writing center has always received a lot of love. The friends have have been making pictures for each other. We love playing outside on the structure where we get to run and climb and work on our gross motor skills.

Everyday we get a new chance to explore our environment and play with each other.

And we get to do it all again next week!

New Year, New Classroom

🥳 Happy New Year! 🥳

It is a brand new year and there have been so many changes that we have gone through together. One big change has happened to the physical classroom itself! We moved some areas around and the flooring is different.

We have had a fun time this week exploring the differences and seeing what things are still the same.

Here is a quick look at what the classroom looks like now.

The top photo is what you see when you come in through the parking lot door. And the bottom is our block area.
Dramatic Play and the Writing Center have switched spots! (Mack moved as well).
The table area is pretty much the same; some of the shelves have moved a little.

While there have been many changes we hope that one thing stays the same. That the Room 3 friends still enjoy coming to school and playing with their friends. We know that we love seeing all of you.

We hope you have a great weekend and we will see you all soon!!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from your friends on the Older Pod Patio! Check out some of the fun and festive activities we did in December…

We enjoyed gingerbread playdough!

We worked our fine motor muscles using gel sensory bags!

We did some STEM building with cups and ornaments!

We read to our Christmas cats!

We built with magna-tiles and jingle bells!

We enjoyed making Christmas sticker creations!

We cut pine needles and explored snow dough in our sensory bin!

We worked with friends to decorate our Christmas tree using loose parts!

We mastered our gross motor skills for the month by practicing going over, under and through the jingle bells!

We enjoyed cheering on our friends as they made their way through our Christmas obstacle course!

Stone Soup

Stone Soup is a tradition at the preschool that we have done for quite awhile. You bring what you got and you put it in the pot!

The children love chopping the vegetables for the soup and then during lunch we all get to try the soup. Along with some fruit and bread!

The soup was so good. Thank you to all the parents who helped make the soup! 🍲
Some friends were fans of the soup and other friends. . . not so much. But we all tried new things!

Stone Soup teaches us about sharing and what awesome things we can do when we all work together! Thanks for all the yummy ingredients.
