Back to School!

Happy New Year! Today marks the second day back at school after a long Christmas break. I don’t know about you guys but the Room 3 teachers have missed you all!!

We have new sand in our sand box and it is excellent for making sand castles! ( We have also been playing Dinosaur. Can you tell which friends are roaring?)
We like our sensory path and using all kinds of things to make molds for castles.
We went to the Big Field and had picnic snack and Ms. Sheri read us a story. Then we played Red Light, Green Light and ran all over the field.
When we got back into the classroom a lot of Room 3 friends drew their own snowmen.
We played so much that we were all ready for lunchtime!

Outside we got to play on the structure and half the friends were firefighters and the other half were kittens. What great imaginations!

All in all we are happy to be back at school.

A Christmas Gift from the Art Studio!

Hello preschool artist! I wanted to share this package filled with art projects, stories and songs you can do and explore over winter break. Wishing you a safe and wonderful Merry Christmas. I can’t wait to see you in the New Year 2021.  –Ms. Monica

Pajama Day!

All week we have been excited for this very day! Pajama Day! The children in Room 3 have been asking every day if it was happening this day. Today we got to say yes!

We played in the sandbox in the morning and had so much fun.

Mr. Tim came into our classroom and read How the Grinch Stole Christmas. We love hearing him read!

He did it with funny voices and everything.
Mr. Tim also sang and played his ukulele.
We ate a Christmas cookie and drank hot cocoa!
The class watched the original Grinch and the whole class said it was just like the story Mr. Tim read!
We wrapped up our day playing on the structure.

Pajama Days are so much fun and we get to do it all over again tomorrow!

Happy Birthday Jesus ( The Sequel)!

We have been decorating our room since the end of the second Stone Soup Day! Ms. Sheri loves Christmas songs and decorations. We have two trees in our class! 😆
We have signs and garland and sparkly lights all over Room 3.

Today we started with our morning meeting where we sang, “We wish you a Merry Christmas”. This has been our morning song all December. After morning meeting we had a snack with a tiny sweet treat. The friends ate them so quickly the teachers couldn’t even get pictures!

We made more gingerbread people and even more Santa hats! (Sorry about all the sparkles! But we love glitter)

We saved our songs until the end of the day and we only had a few friends but we wore our hats and sang one of our Christmas songs.

We decided to do only one song! Santa Claus is coming to town was the winner.

Next week is the last week before the Christmas Break ( December 21st- January 4th) and we have a couple of fun days planned! December 17th and 18th are our PJ & Hot Cocoa Days! We will wear pajamas and watch short holiday movies like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and the original Grinch!

Happy Birthday Jesus!

Hello Room 1A parents! Here it is – The moment we have all been waiting for, HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESUS PERFORMANCES! They turned out GREAT! Their wonderful personalities are showcased throughout these videos! We performed Baby Jesus, We Love You and Bethel’s Little Drummer Boy! They practiced so much for these performances, you should all be extremely proud! We know we are! 🙂

There are two videos available!

This video includes our M-W-F friends.
This video includes our T-TH friends.

Enjoy!

Happy Birthday Jesus!

Every year we have a Happy Birthday Jesus party where we celebrate the birth of Jesus and play fun games, make crafts, decorate cookies and sing songs that we have practiced over and over again!

This year is a little different in how we celebrate, but we are still having fun and enjoying this special season with each other.

The first big thing we did was sing the songs we have been practicing as a class. What we actually got on video might be a little different than what we practiced, but it was fun!

This is the song that they love the most! They ask for it even when we play on the yard.
Before we sang this song the class was shown tiny cupcakes they would get as a party treat. Needless to say, we were excited!

Ms. Sheri read to the class during snack time! We talked about Jesus and his birthday and why we celebrate it.

We enjoyed our sweet treat! (We also had our regular snack which were Saltines!)

Ms. Sheri read The Gingerbread Man during Morning Meeting and after snack we made our own Gingerbread people and Santa hats and decorated both with glitter and jewels and googly eyes!

Some of our Gingerbread people!
We colored our hats with our favorite colors.
After nap we wore our hats outside; even when we were riding our bikes.

Even though it wasn’t the same as usual we had a pretty good time!
