We read books about teeth and dental health. We made a mouth model with construction paper and used marshmallows and glued on some teeth. We talked about food that makes the teeth strong and how water is good for the body and keeps you hydrated.
The kids seem to have more fun on our second day of snow fun. They were pros at climbing on the sled and enjoying the ride down the slope. We had a snowball fight and even got to make a bigger snowman. Hip, hip, hooray!
We read fun books and learn Mandarin words and numbers one to ten from Ms. Melissa
In class we Cooked fried rice it was fun experience, all the children got to put something in the wok and they heard the sizzling sound. “It was tasteful!” Heidi and Kevin (Evelyn’s mom and dad) graciously shared a book “Bringing In the New Year,” dumplings and egg roll as well to have for snack in the class.
Reading the Bible story “Jesus loves the little children (Matthew 18:1-14) captured the children’s attention. Specially where Jesus said “Let the children come to me and don’t stop them, because the kingdom of God belongs to persons like them.” We are very happy to see how fast our kids learn the song “Jesus Love Me,” along with hand motions for our song.
Our Valentines Day Celebration was adorable. All the children got a chance to distribute their valentine cards, decorate our sugar cookies and enjoy fresh fruit as a morning snack
February Chapel is always a great time to talk about love and specifically, God’s love.
For this chapel we read 1 John 4:7-13, which discusses how much God loves us and the role we play in sharing God’s love with the world.
Our focus song was G.O.D. is L.O.V.E. based on 1 John 4:8 & 16 and we learned how to spell it out using American sign language.
We also enjoyed reading the book Because God Loves Me! Below you will find the link to Mr. Tim’s YouTube version of the story.
We concluded chapel by brainstorming how we can show love at the preschool. The most popular answers across all the classrooms were…share, give hugs, say “hi”, and give cards.
We are so grateful for the love of God and the ability to share that love with the world.
Here we are on our second day of snow at PCS. We had so much fun on our second day the kids were pros happy and looking forward to climb up the cliff and slide down on the sled. We had a snowball fight and made a bigger snowman. Hip! Hip! Hooray!
For those who are curious about how we managed to create a wintery funscape here in our preschool parking lot, check out the videos below.
Utilizing enormous blocks of ice and a specialized ice shaving machine, Artic Glacier is able to make it snow wherever they go.
We are so grateful for the blessing of our Snow Days!
Way to have fun inside our class. We had a chance to explore the freezing ice blocks and watch it slowly Melt in the sun.
We are so excited to be back together at the preschool and to have our very first Chapel of 2021!
Today we discussed what we remembered about the Christmas Story and the birth of Jesus. Where he was born and who Jesus’ first visitors were. Then we learned about the Wise Men from the East and read Matthew 2:1-12 as well as the Rhyme Bible. We learned how the Wise Men (Magi) followed the star from far away to find the new born king (Messiah). The children had a wonderful time learning the first two verses of We Three Kings and discussing the three gifts that the Wise Men brought. It was a fantastic way to start a new year together.
Welcome to “2021.” We pray that you all had a healthy and safe celebration.
As we come back from a long vacation some of the kids will be experiencing separation anxiety, It’s very normal. The children probably enjoyed their special time with you and they probably would like to stay in bed a little longer, keep their pj’s on all day or just cuddle with mommy or daddy. We would probably like to do that too. 😃
January is a good time to talk about the cold weather since is cold outside and everyone is wearing jackets. We have on display winter books such as; “All You Need for a Snowman,” “Snowballs,” “There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow,” “When it starts to Snow,” and “Snowmen at Night.” We are making fun winter arts and craft and have turned our Christmas tree into a giant snowman.
Returning to school is fun. We get to ask the kids What did you do all these days at home? We had some that said; We went to church, we had dinner, we open presents and some who said we drank hot coco or went on an airplane. They had a lot to say and let me tell you our goal was to hear their words and collective minds, patiently waiting for their turn to tell us their stories .
With prayers to God, we wish you a year full of hope, surprises, blessings, health, peace and happiness.
