We had a very adventurous week at camp. The firefighters came to us and we visited the Library and Post Office! On top of that we send postcards home and did experiments with a combination of materials! Did you know Ivory soap makes a cloud when put in the microwave for one minute? We learned all this and more! See below for some pictures of our fun times.

Pirates and Princesses Playdate

July 24, 2015 K Prep, Preschool No Comments

Once upon a time in a Kingdom not so far away, there were Princesses and Pirates celebrating a beautiful summer day!  Pirates and Princess week was a jolly good time. We searched for treasure, we made wishes with fairy dust and even learned to talk like a pirate. This week was a huge success and a lot of fun for both boys and girls!

Summer Camp-Super Hero Week

June 25, 2015 Uncategorized No Comments

 

Superhero week was mighty fun. Children got to pretend to be many different super heroes while doing different activities. The Hulk, Spiderman, Superman, Captain America, and Flash were some of our favorites. There were many super hero experts at camp. We got to work together to save many super heroes from their villains in an array of tasks. Look below to see your child being a Super Hero!

Go float your boat!

May 26, 2015 Toddlers No Comments

Man, have our toddlers grown! On Friday, the boys and girls sat so patiently while we came around to help them build boats with pool noodles, straws and foam triangles. After the children finished their boats, they were able to go see if they would float! Our sensory tub was filled with water, along with some other tubs around the room. The boys and girls really enjoyed splashing, dunking and floating their boats!

Ocean Unit

Throughout the month of May we are learning about oceans and ponds. We started our unit with learning all about oceans and the animals that live in oceans. We finished learning about our last letter in the alphabet- Z!

IMG_3260

Creating an ocean scene at the block center. The block center contains loose parts including pool noodles, blocks, animals, and seaweed that allow children to use their imagination and build.  IMG_3258

This month we have the light table in our room. They can use their imagination and build with the blocks or try to recreate one of the structures in a picture.  IMG_3257

In our sensory tub this month we have sand, shovels, buckets, and shells that allow children to play, scoop and build.  IMG_3256

IMG_3255

In small groups, we worked on our fine motor skills and placed marbles onto a suction cup fish.

We went fishing for number fish in small groups. We used magnetic fishing poles to catch a fish and read the number and color on the fish.

Fishing with Ms. Laurel

May 12, 2015 Toddlers No Comments

The boys and girls had a blast fishing with Ms. Laurel today! This was such a fun and interactive way for the children to review their colors and shapes. The boys and girls were given a chance to go fishing, then they told the other children what color their fish was and what shape it had on it. They all did a great job recognizing their shapes and colors!
