Feeding The Penguin

Finally today it seems like we are getting back into our routines and with happy faces all around . Today we fed the penguin .  The fish had letters on them and I would ask a child to feed the penguin the letter R or the letter Q.  Very rarely was any child not able […]

Another Snowy Day

      This morning started off with the kids making their own breakfast.  Tortillas pinched into snowflakes  and fried with a light dusting of sugar.   Later in the morning I was so happy to see Fernando working on the alphabet game we did yesterday . He filled in all the blanks to complete […]

Oh Snow, Where Art Thou ?

Now that all the snow has left our area we are starting a unit on ice and snow.  I guess I can take solace in the fact that the kids do have more background experience on ice and snow than other classes I have had in the past.  Today was  a  typical Monday in our […]

Welcome Back

I was so glad to be back in school today and the kids were too.   We had a great time catching up with each other and the things that we had planned that we missed out on the other days we were out. In circle time we read books about Christmas and Santa.  One […]

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 […]

Fun interrupted by SNOW

We have had a great day.  For the first time in a long time we ALMOST had a full crew here. We had 14 out of 16 here.  Tiana and Kaden are still home with what we expect is the noro-virus. This is NOT doctor confirmed it is mommy and teacher suspected. It is vomiting […]

Snowflakes !

Today we had fun talking about snow flakes.  Thankfully we have had a few already this year so the kids knew what I was talking about.  I hope when it snowed really good the last time that you went out and made some snow cream. I think I posted the recipe.  I have great memories […]

What do bears do in the winter ?

Today has been a BLAH.. day. Nothing exciting or new really going on EXCEPT we pretended to be bears that hibernate during the winter .                                         When I said ” winter” they all went to sleep. […]

Is it spring or winter ?

The weather has NOT cooperated this week in being a teaching aid for my winter unit.   But THATS OK! I WILL TAKE IT! One of the activities we did today was exploring curved and straight lines .  All letters are comprised of a straight line, a curved line or a combination of the two. […]

Snowmen everywhere !

Today the kids enjoyed the IPAD more.   It is interesting to watch them try to navigate their way through all the programs and how they instinctively know what to do.                     There we also other activities on the table to keep them busy .   […]
