FF had another fun class this week! They had their pictures taken and enjoyed a visit from very friendly dog in the meadow! They also had fun in the yard, playing with cars and enjoying the outdoors!
This week was all about the color RED. We wore red, we listed red objects found in the classroom, and we painted red apples and fire trucks. 2-day also had some serious car washing bubbly fun this week up in the yard.
3-Day had music with Renee and had a blast with the parachute in the meadow. Many children in the class are discovering a shared love of trains. Parents have been helping them build really long tracks. On Friday, Teacher Mie read When Sophie gets Angry — Really. Really Angry by Molly Bang. The book seemed to resonate with the class. And as usual, 3-Day sang a lot of songs, especially the “Birthday Song”!
Pre-K had another exciting week of adventures! Circle time seems to be an exciting time, with activities such as spelling their names using stickers on paper plates, doodling, and doing self-portraits all while listening to updates from their friends. It was also a fun time for the kids to channel their inner peace by doing yoga with teacher Kelly after snack. It was a much needed break before going up to yard on a hot day!
Ollie’s mom (Wendy) organized a game of baseball in the meadow right at the start of class, so it was a nice change of pace for the kids! Last week we celebrated Isla’s 5th birthday, and this week we had a double header birthday celebration for Erin and Tyler! The kids enjoyed their goodies and the tasty treats!
A highlight of the week is when Pre-K went to outer space! A majority of the class partook in a large role-playing adventure, where all kids boarded a spaceship (under the loft) with their space boarding passes, space food, and proper safety restraints. Teacher Kelly joined the group in this epic adventure to the Planet “Pig-ala-plata-muds”, where the kids were greeted by a very friendly space pig. Piggy invited the space cadets to a wonderful picnic spread on his lovely planet. It was quite the adventure and an exciting example of great collaborative play.
