This week we have been doing lots of planting 😁 we have planted two kinds of lettuce, cucumber, yellow squash, peas, beets, radish and sunflowers. We are excited to take care of our plants and watch them grow. Stay tuned for updates.
No matter if we are inside or outside, we are silly and having fun. 🙂
Outdoor play is the best! We have been climbing on the big structure, going down the slides, runing and digging in the sand!
We have been learning how to sort bears; placing the right color bears into the right color cup. We have been practicing with mixing colors; we have mixed yellow and red to make orange, yellow and blue to make green. We have also used green and blue to create the earth.
In Room 5, we have been exploring caterpillars growing, planting beans and testing out the reaction of vinegar and baking soda!
This April’s chapel focused on the “Good News” of Christ resurrections. While Easter is a few weeks behind us, we aspire to celebrate Jesus’ love, power, and promise everyday.
We also learned the words and Mr. Tim’s hand motions to Lord I Lift Your Name On High. Below you will find a YouTube link to a fun version of the song and a preschool favorite.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 (NIV)
We revisited the details of the Easter Story by reading from our Rhyme Bible. It was a great way to recall everything that happened on that incredible day. He is risen!
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!
We are so thankful for our special guests who called in to read to our little ones. Thank you from the bottom of our ♥️ hearts. Our little ones were so happy. 🤗
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.
We have been enjoying the rain, bubbles and sand! We have also begun exploring the big yard the past couple of weeks and have found so many new things to play!
