Row Row Row your Boat

>The children are all sleeping…. shhhh….. Today we started to explore water transportation.  We read Noah’s Ark.  ( Yes, we can do that…) The kids loved the story. It was told from Noah’s grandsons point of view.    We made sail boats from fun foam and little bowls.   The kids really had fun with […]

Paper Airplanes

>Today  we expanded on our talk of things that can transport us in the air. We read a book called ” Peter and Peggie” Pilot.  In the book we talked about the kinds of things that we see in an airplane but we also talked about P words. The kids came up with about 15 […]

5, 4, 3, 2 ,1 Blast off

>Today we talked about ways to ride through the air. I am convinced that my kiddos watch too much TV. They ALWAYS say… a bird!   I would hate to see the size of the bird that I would need to ride. SCARY! I went to a pre-k meeting at Northside last night. It was […]

Happy Presidents Day !

>Today has been a slow fun day.  I would guess it was a lot like Saturdays at your house.  The kids helped me take all the Valentines fun down and get ready to go a different direction. I am REALLY trying to be child centered so in circle time today I talked about what a […]

Mommy and Me Tea

>It was fun . Thanks everyone for showing up  and celebrating Valentines with me!

I Wuv You…

>Today has been another fun day.  It has been nice to have Valentines fun without working up to the inevitable sugar buffet, crowded room and chaos.  Today has been about what all holidays should be about the relationships. Example-    As the children came in they placed the Valentines they brought in their friends envelopes. […]

Oh wont you be my Valentine

>Today we worked on our Valentines Envelopes that will hold out friends valentines.  It is really fun to watch the kids creativity as they decide what to do.
