Our Teddy Bear Picnic!

We LOVED bringing our Teddies to school! In PK it is so much fun to fill a whole day around one theme! This special day was built around the book, The Teddy Bears Picnic by Jimmy Kennedy. Boy did we have fun!

Our room was filled with the wonderful smell of COFFEE as we made lots of gluey coffee bears, and  colorful dotter bears too!

Mrs. Schoon took an official “portrait” of us holding  our Teddies,  then we told Mrs. Kileen all about  them.  We used our fine motor skills,  with a new medium, colored pencils, to make the front of  our Teddy “info”card beautiful,and then Mrs. Schoon glued our official “Teddy Portrait” inside!

Oh but the best was yet to come! Do you know what those Teddies did? While we were in Music they ran away! We had to go on a big search for them just like in the  Teddy Bear Picnic story!

When we got back to our classroom after NOT finding them anywhere… they tricked us again! Those funny teddies were having their own picnic right in our room!

We ate our snack with them and enjoyed pretending we were on a real picnic!  We love you Teddies and hope you had fun on your special day!

 

Making Bubble Art!

Hi Parents!

Were a few of you wondering why your child may have come home with a bit of paint in their hair? Well here’s why! We were busy creating Bubble Art!  The only thing you need is a straw and a mixture of 1 part bubble solution and 1  part paint. We put our bubble paints in different sized  containers to make our fun more effective and then we started blowing, and catching our bubbles on our papers!   It was AWESOME!

 

Making Apple Prints!

We LOVED cutting open an apple and seeing the STAR inside!  Then we did some apple prints to catch the star on our papers! We didn’t necessarily see the star at times, but we sure had a great sensory experience stamping our apples in red, green and yellow paint!!

 

Exploring our room and Playground!

Oh boy did we enjoy discovering all the cool toys in our new preschool room and playing on our playground! We made new friends and had lots of fun, fun fun!

Blasting off with Rocket names!

For Rr week we tested the knowledge of the letters in our name! First we had to count how many letters we needed, then we each picked the right number of colorful squares and wrote a letter of our name in each square. Then we glued them in a line like a rocket and BLASTED OFF!

Making Green Eggs!

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!

Pizza With Our Pop!

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 love Pajama Day!

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!

Pajama Day Fun!

We had so much fun on Pajama Day! The theme for our special day was based on the book Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed so we made some awesoem paper plate monkeys! We had already painted one small late brown for the head, and one large plate for the body. Then we glued on big google eyes, cut out our own tummies, just the way we wanted them, and folded up our paper strips for the arms and legs so our monkeys would be springy and ready to jump through the trees!

You Can’t Catch Me! I’m the Gingerbread Man!

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!
