We have been having such a busy summer! We have been beginning to enjoy the warmer weather again and more water play! We even got to make “Desert Dirt Cups” for those that wanted to participate. 🙂
This week we enjoyed making art with the colors red white and blue. We were feeling very patriotic. We discussed fireworks and how loud but beautiful they can be. We sang going on a Bear hunt and read the book brown bear brown bear though the days. Tuesday the children walked over to the big school to do water play in the pools. It was such perfect play for a hot day. On Wednesday we watched a fire work show before movie time and then a short movie. We explored the rice table and animal puzzles.
That’s the end of Session 1!! We are excited to begin Session 2!!
Week 3 has been a busy week! We have been stamping and doing rubbing crayon art, running/climbing outside and eating snow cones, watching a mini movie and eating a yummy snack, walking to the big school for chapel, and today we got to go to the big school and go through the corn maze!
This week is Arctic week in Room 5- we have been exploring white rice and arctic animals as well as other arctic animals and a play structure. We have been practicing our building skills with sugar cubes (fine motor) and twig blocks (large motor).
We are looking forward to Week 4, where we will visit the Desert National Parks. Stay tuned!
Enjoy pictures from Week 3! 🙂
Each week we get to do art, watch a short movie, play in the water, go to chapel and enjoy a show at the big school!
Our National Park this week is: Warm Water Beaches. For our sensory bin this week we explored fine sand and ocean animals! For an extra art activity we painted paper plate fish!
Even though this week has been way to cold for water play, that hasn’t stopped our fun! We have been enjoying running around on the big yard and eating snow cones, singing and hearing God’s Word in chapel, watching Charlie’s Color Form on Netflix and eating a yummy snack, learning how to wrap yarn around a stick, and watching a juggler balance a wheelbarrow on his face (among many other talents)!
Enjoy some pictures below! 🙂
Hello Room 5!
We are so excited that summer is here and we get to play and learn together! We have been doing some exciting things this past week from painting rocks, splish splashin’ in pools, going to chapel, watching a short movie and finishing off the week with an Ocean Rocks presentation where we were able to learn about Ocean Animals! Take a look at some pictures of our first week! Enjoy!
Flu and cold season is officially upon us and unfortunately, and at times, it seems the only things little children are willing to share are germs!
Please click here to visit the CDC’s “ACTION STEPS” for fighting the flu!
At preschool, we are taking every measure possible to prevent the spread of germs at school such as disinfecting surfaces and toys with an EPA approved, school-friendly disinfectant, washing hands regularly, and as required by law, checking students daily for signs of sickness. Students who exhibit symptoms will be sent home to recover.
We appreciate every parent who has been proactive in checking their child(ren) daily for signs of sickness before coming to school. Please remember to keep your child home if they are exhibiting any symptoms of sickness, including lethargy, fever, vomiting, coughing, sneezing, excessive crankiness, disrupted sleep patterns, etc.
If your child does get sick, please remember that there is a mandatory 24 hour waiting period after the final symptoms of fever, vomiting, or diarrhea without the aid of medication.
Finally, if your child does exhibit signs of the flu, it is highly encouraged to see a doctor right away as your child may be eligible for an anti-viral that will shorten the duration of the sickness.
