Our friends have really been enjoying spending Thursdays outside in the courtyard for Water Day! While some of us prefer to stay a little more dry by playing in the water tables and bubbles, some of our other friends waste no time getting soaked in the sprinklers and splash pad!
The Pre-Preppers spent this week learning a little about the 4th of July! We talked about different American symbols, such as the American flag, the bald eagle, and the Statue of Liberty. We also talked about how most people celebrate the 4th of July and painted our own fireworks using straws!
We celebrated the 4th early in our room by making red, white, and blue fruit pizzas for our snack!
We had such a fun time during our first Water Day of the season! Despite a little drizzle outside, the Pre-Preppers made the best of it and had a blast splashing in the water tables, running through the sprinklers, and chasing bubbles!
Our sweet, little Olivia turned two yesterday! She might be the “baby” of the classroom, but she is just as sweet, spunky, and smart as the rest of our friends and can definitely hold her own! Happy birthday, Livi-Lou!
A few weeks ago the Pre-Preppers learned all about the life cycles of flowers and how to take care of them. For our Art Auction project, we decided to put our painting skills to use and paint different shades of pink on our papers with one thing that flowers need most: WATER! The watercolor masterpieces were cut into petals and arranged in the shape of a flower. Be sure to check out the finished product at our Art Show Silent Auction!
Our oldest friend, Abby, turns THREE today! Abigail is a sweet helper to all of her friends and loves to be silly and tell her friends and teachers stories. She is definitely our “mother” of the group and likes to make sure all of our friends are doing the right thing! Abigail can often be found twirling like a princess while singing “Let it Go” or “Into the Unknown” and is by far the fastest runner on our playground! We love you, sweet Abby!
This week the Pre-Preppers learned all about the life cycles of plants, animals, and insects. We focused on caterpillars, ladybugs, frogs, and flowers.
To create a hands-on learning experience, our friends observed and helped take care of our ever-changing ladybug larvae, sorted pasta in the shapes of caterpillars, cocoons, and butterflies, and planted some seeds in hopes that we will get to witness some sprouts and flowers in the upcoming weeks!
We had so much fun making egg and chick crafts this week! Despite the cold weather, we had a BLAST searching for Easter eggs out on the big field! Happy Easter to all!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day from the Pre-Prepper crew! We celebrated by wearing green, making a special “pot of gold” cereal craft and snack, and dancing to music with bubbles!
The Pre-Preppers had such a fun week learning about Dr. Seuss! We ended our week by wearing GREEN and reading a silly story followed by a yummy breakfast: Green Eggs and Ham!
