Classroom Pumpkin Patch

The children painted pumpkins made from paper stuffed bags. This was another of our messy Friday activities.

Messy Friday

What happens when you give shave cream, blue finger paint, and yellow finger paint to preschool children? You get a mess and FUN! You also find out that blue and yellow make green.

Preschool Fire Fighters

Can you figure out which one of these children is your little fire fighter? We are studying about fire safety this week. Mrs. Craig arranged for the children to explore real fire gear. The fire trucks should be at the school tomorrow. These pictures are of the morning class. I will publish pictures of the afternoon class over the weekend.

How do I Feel?

Impulsive Puppy (a realistic looking puppet) comes to visit our classes on Fridays. He is part of the Second Step Anti-violence Curriculum that helps us recognize our emotions and teaches acceptable ways to deal with them. Last Friday, we talked about our bodies showing others how we feel. The children imitated different emotions. Can you guess what emotions they are pretending to show?

Our Future Homes

We have been studying about families and homes. This week the children used found materials such as tissue tubes,paper towel tubes, paper plates, cups, and other materials to build what they thought their houses would look like in the future. They worked really hard and made some unique homes.
