Rainy Day toys

>Well, the rain was with us this morning, and the sun did come out, but much to our dismay it did not dry up the playground enough to go outside. We instead had lots of fun playing with our rainy day toys. Ms. Beth brought a game from home called Cranium Hullabaloo. The kids really […]

Another quiet Monday

>We had two absent today, so it was quieter than usual, but we had a great day. We began our study dinosaurs with the book Danny and the Dinosaur. The children really seemed to enjoy this book in circle time. We also read a similar story, If I Had A Dinosaur. We learned about “carnivores” […]

Singin’ in the rain

>Today was full of excitement… I purchased that materials to make the tie-dyed shirts and we made them this morning during free-choice center time. The kids really got to do this project by themselves…it is very simple. They turned out great…very vibrant and colorful, and the kids were so proud of what they had done. […]

Our First Outing

>Today began with much excitement about our “field trip” to the library. I kept getting asked “Is it time to go to the library yet?” As hard as it was, we played in centers for a bit, and then had circle time before we left. This morning I asked Debbie to preheat the oven before […]

5 Little Fishies

>I only had five kiddos today…one on vacation, one sick, and one I never heard from, so I assume she was just taking a day off. It was one of those days when I wonder why I am getting paid to do this job. It is so much fun. I have had alot of those […]

Welcome Sunshine!

>Today was another day with only 6 kiddos…not so quiet, though. This morning we had a serious game of hide and seek. The only problem we encountered was that everyone wants to hide, leaving no seekers. We got it straightened out, and played for along time. To continue with our ocean week, in the manipulative […]

It’s Raining, It’s Pouring…
