Oh Boy was it fun making Green Eggs to celebrate Dr. Seuss month! First we each cracked an egg with our partner into the bowl….
Then Mrs. Schoon added the green food coloring…
Then we stirred up our eggs and watched them turn GREEN!
Then into the skillet they went! We all took a “safe stir”!We knew NOT to touch the skillet in any way!
Then it was time to eat our Green Eggs and…Sausage!
We LOVE Dr. Seuss month!
Boy did we have fun mailing a special Valentine to someone we loved! First, we had to get our special “hug” cards stuffed into the envelopes and make sure they were licked shut-it was a kind of yucky job, but we did it!\\
Then we were off to the Southfield Post Office! We sat on the bus quietly, and waited in line VERY quietly too, so as not to disturb the other people who were mailing things:)
When we got up to the counter, the post office helper let us pick out whichever stamp we wanted! We put our stamp on our envelope, payed for it, and got our receipt and change.
Then off we sent it down the mail chute to get to our special someone!
Oh boy did we have a BIG event in Preschool! To get ready for our fun night with our dads we started by making a special craft to put on our bulletin board! Since we would be making pizzas that night we crafted a chef of ourselves holding a “pizza”. The two pieces of pepperoni had 2 reasons we loved our dad typed on them…we put them up on the board, wrote a special message to dad so he would know what to do when we got to school that night and got our special event underway…
When we first got to school with daddy, Mrs. Schoon took a special picture of us with him, then it was time to make our pizzas!
When they were ready for the oven, we played across the hall with Dad while Mr. Vowles, and Jack and Max(Mrs. Vowles’ sons) cooked the pizzas!
Then it was time to eat!
A great time was had by all! We love you dad!
We loved making a yummy Monkey Bread snack on our special day! We each ripped a connamoon biscuit into pieces and rolled them into balls that we put in a ziploc bac filled with sugar and cinnamon and then shook it up until all the balls were covered and sweet! Then we put them in our cupcake liner and off to the oven they went! We all agreed they were delicious and that Pajama Day in Preschool is awesome!
We decided to give our fine motor muscles a nice workout by making some Lemonade and Limeade during Ll week! We loved using our little juicers which were just the right size for our four year old hands, and learning how they catch the juice, but don’t let any seeds or pulp get inside. Some of us juiced lemons, some of us juiced limes. It was a TOUGH job, but we did it!
Then we checked to see how much juice we were getting out, and if our whole fruit was “empty”, or if we still had some juicing left to do…
Then we added sugar, ice and some water and poured our lemon and/or limeade ourselves..DELICIOUS! And the lemons and limes made our room smell yummy too!
Oh what fun we had making real Gingerbread man cookies! First, we pressed our piece of dough so that it was big enough to fit our gingerbread man cookie cutter on it, then we PRESSED the cutter down, and removed the extra dough around it, revealing our gingerbread man shape!
Then we decorated our Gingerbread men and girls with mini m and ms!
Then our cookies were ready for the oven! Don’t worry!Mrs. Schoon stayed in the kitchen to make sure they didn’t try to run away!
Oh did we have fun painting with potatoes and peppers to make a turkey! First, we stamped a potato in brown paint to make the turkey’s body…
Then it was time to add the feathers! Green pepper halves dipped in different colors of paint did the trick!
Then we added some google eyes, orange construction paper feet and a red waddle, both of which we cut out in any way we liked…and TAADAA! Here are our turkeys!
We had so much fun baking pumpkin muffins this week! first we gathered our ingredients…
Then we broke up into two groups and started following our recipe to make our muffins!
We stirred up our ingredients!
We put in the liners and then it was off to the kitchen!
We baked them and gave them a taste!
A great time was had by all!
Hands on experience is always the BEST experience to have in preschool! Our Bible unit the past few weeks has been about Noah. So in typical PK style we made animal Masks…we all had a partner of course, because the animals came to the ark “two by two”…
Then Mrs. Vowles dressed up as Noah and told the “animals” what God had spoken to “me”…
Then we got on the ark!! Wev talked about what it was like on the ark…hot, crowded, and probably stinky! We “heard” the rain! (Mrs. Vowles played a thunderstorm CD..) When the rain stopped we got off the ark, and there it was! The rainbow! God’s Promise to never flood the earth again! We had a great experience!
In keeping with our Pumpkin unit, Mrs. Vowles brought in a special guest for us to meet: it was the GIANT Mr. Pumpkin! First, we checked him out and noticed he had lines on hom..he wasn’t smooth..
Then we painted our interpretation of him at the easels, ONLY using yellow paint(for pumpkin flowers), brown paint (for the dirt the pumpkins sit on), green paint(for the vine), and orange paint (for Mr. Pumpkin)…it was fun to see that EVERY painting was different even though we all used the same colors and were painting the same Mr. Pumpkin!
Then it was time to cut Mr. Pumpkin open and see what was inside! It didn’t hurt him a bit and we loved checking out his seeds and pulp!
Then we carved a pretty heart into him and watched it glow…just like Jesus’ Love glows in us 🙂
