Snow in May

Nothing like an expected snow in MAY to change a preschool teachers lesson plans . Since we got accumulated snow last night we HAD to go out in it and play.  It was so much fun.  The wind wasnt blowing so it wasnt really that bad.  I enjoyed watching the kids excitement.  Too soon we […]

C is for Cow

Randy had a doctors appointment today and as Dallas and I went over the lesson plans before we left she said ” Its such a beautiful day, I wish we could stay outside.”  So, we talked about ways to improvise the lesson plans so that we still ” got it all in ” and she […]

Welcome to the ” Funny Farm “

That is actually the name of the book ( one of them ) that we read today.  What was funny about the farm we read about was there were no people . The farmers were dogs and they all wore clothes.  Weird, I know. But the kids liked it.  See…   We played farm BINGO […]

Horses

Today  we did an activity that allowed us to look at directions ( visual ) and listen to directions ( auditory ) and draw a horse.  I was pleasantly surprised at how many of the drawings really did end up looking like a horse !                     […]

Farm Friends

Still learning basic concepts we need to know to be ready for kindergarten through books and toys that are farm related. Today we sequenced tractors from smallest to largest. Two of the tractors were equal.   We used manipulatives ( tiny farm animals ) to practice the concepts of inside, outside, beside, on top and […]

E I E I O

Today we started a unit on farm.  I find it interesting that most of the kids thought that farms mainly raised animals and knew little about vegetation farms.  My mom was raised in a huge farming community and many of my uncles and cousins raise cotton. We had new materials on the table today. This […]

How many different ways can we sort ?

Today we looked at a book full of pictures of real farm animals.  Using books like this is a great way to increase  you child’s vocabulary.  We can use many adjectives to describe what we see .  There were FLOCKS of sheep.  We saw PIGLETS , DUCKLINGS and CHICKS.  What do you call a baby […]

Mrs Wishy Washy Drops In

Today Mrs Wishy Washy made her one day annual appearance.  The kids of course knew it was me but it is still fun to pretend.  I came in the room dressed as Mrs Wishy Washy.  ( Funny side note… as I walked through the kitchen dressed up and headed to the bathroom to fix my […]
