  • April Part One: Insects and Gardening

    April’s theme in Preschool Prep is based around gardening and insects. We have integrated this theme into our daily curriculum and are having so much fun!

       The Very Hungry Caterpillar story retelling 

    Bug Fossils!

    Each day this month we have done a “Daily News” segment in the classroom 🙂 We first have someone introduce the news, and then we work together to figure out what month and day of the week it is. Next, we choose a student to be our “weather kid” for the day. This person gets to wear a special badge and report the weather based on what they see outside and how it feels! Lastly, we complete a feelings chart where the students pick a face that mimics how they are feeling that day (all of the children have picked the happy face so far)!

  • St. Patrick’s Day!

    Did you hear?! We had a LEPRECHAUN in the toddler classroom! That sneaky leprechaun made such a mess of our classroom! We talked all about trying to catch a leprechaun to take his gold, and how hard it is to catch one! Below you can see what kind of mischief that leprechaun got into.

    For this St. Patrick’s Day activity, our friends rolled a die and whichever number they rolled, that’s how many gold coins they counted into their pots.

    Shamrock crafts! One of our crafts was turning our white shamrock green, using glue and tissue paper. Our other craft was, putting glue onto their shamrock, and then they sprinkled glitter on top of the glue, to make a leprechaun wand!

    Our last activity for our St. Patrick’s Day celebration was going on a gold hunt! Once they found THREE gold coins, they got to turn them in for a “gold bar” (a twix!)

  • Things That GO!

    During the month of February, we talked about transportation and things that take us all over the world! We learned about trains, cars, bicycles, hot air balloons, and airplanes. We even took an imaginary airplane to the beach!

    Ms. Kristen was the pilot of our plane, while Ms. Melanie and Ms. Kelsey were the flight attendants. They even got a snack and drink on the flight 😉

    We also learned all about what the red, yellow, and green lights stand for! We practiced learning these colors and their meanings by tossing matching bean bags with the color on the “stop light”

    Our alphabet page for our transportation theme was “R” is for “road”! The toddlers practiced their fine motor skills by peeling off stickers, and sticking them onto the “road” made out of the letter R!

    We also had a fun sensory activity with our cars, having a pretend car wash in our sensory bins.

    And because you can never do too many color sorting activities, we used miniature modes of transportation to sort onto our color mats!

  • Valentine’s Day in Preschool

    We had such a fun day celebrating the ones we love… our families!  From our mini concert to our yummy snack, and even our fun activities, I’d say Valentine’s Day in Preschool was a success!


  • Toddler Valentine’s Day Party!

    WOW! It was such a great month of love 🙂 We enjoyed having all of our families come to the toddler classroom to celebrate Valentine’s Day with their little ones at school! Below are some of the lovely moments captured during our Valentine’s Day party!


    We made our “little lovebug” hats–and sang little lovebug with Ms. Joanie!

  • Secret Pizza Party

    We read the story Secret Pizza Party by Adam Rubin, and had our very own secret pizza party in the toddler room! We used slices of bread, cut into a heart shape, for each of our friends to make their own personal pizzas!

    After we finished making our pizzas, we popped them in the oven, and made our “‘P’ is for ‘pizza'” letter page!

    Our pizzas were smelling great, so it was time to give them a try!

    It was such a fun pizza party in the toddler classroom 🙂

  • Buddy Time

    We took advantage of our smaller groups today and paired each of our KPrep students up with a Preschool Prep student.  The buddies worked together to build big shapes with smaller shapes over in the Kprep room!  The preschool preppers were so excited to come visit the big room and have a big buddy to get to know.  Then we marched over to the preschool prep room with our buddies and the little guys got to share their favorite centers with the older kids.  We had fun with our buddies today!!
