Fall Leaves and Thankfulness Trees!

November 28, 2016 Toddlers No Comments

Fall season is coming to an end, but we have had so much fun with the colors of Fall, and the leaves that come from trees in the Fall. We also had some Thanksgiving stories, art projects, and got to make our own mini apple pies for a Thanksgiving treat in school! We are so thankful for all of our students in the toddler classroom.

Painting our leaves for our Thankfulness Tree! Each child got to paint their leaf, and then tell us what they are thankful for this Thanksgiving season :)

The Preschool Feast

November 26, 2016 Preschool No Comments

In preschool, we have been learning about The First Thanksgiving and what it may have been like for kids their age back then versus what they are like now.  We learned why they had a feast that very first Thanksgiving and we prepared our very own feast to enjoy!  Students practiced using a butter knife to cut strawberries, bananas, and oranges.  We learned to snap the “yucky” ends of the green beans.  Using a lot of arm strength, we made our very own butter by shaking cream… for a long time…  We crushed up graham crackers for our pie crust and we even made our very own bread in a bag.  On Tuesday, we enjoyed the fruits of our labor and got to eat all of the yummy food!

Bats Love the Night!

November 22, 2016 K Prep No Comments

The K prep class completed their nocturnal animals of the forest study!  The last animal we explored was the mysterious and often times misunderstood bat.  We read a variety of books about the bat to learn about the unique characteristics of this amazing creature.

We learned one way mamma bat identifies her pups is through her sense of smell.  We tested our own sense of smell by trying to find our own bat babies with the same scent as ours!  It was harder than we thought, we discovered that a bat must have an amazing sense of smell.

After identifying our bat pups we learned about the parts of a bat, wrote them and labeled them!

After learning about the bat’s unique characteristics we worked hard to read about them independently…then helped out the illustrator and added interesting details!

We wrapped up our bat unit with a special Wild Kratts episode all about our new friend, the bat!

We Went on a Bear Hunt!

November 18, 2016 Preschool No Comments

We read the story “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury this week and preschool and we had a GREAT time!  When the preschoolers showed up for school they walked into a surprise obstacle course and they were all so excited to see what we were doing!  We read the story and then in order to practice our story retelling skills, we went on our own bear hunt and experienced all the parts of the story while searching for the bear with our binoculars!

We went through the long swishy grass!
