Where's the Giant?

We read different versions of "Jack and the Bean Stalk" last week.  The children planted their own bean stalks.

Kindergarten Readers

The Mrs. Miller's kindergarten students came over and read to the preschool students today.  It is always exciting to hear last year's preschool students come back and read to this year's preschool students.  Mrs. Jenning's kindergarten students will read to the afternoon children today.  I will post pictures after they read.

Here a Chick, There a Chick......

The chicks have gone to new homes.  The children were disappointed to come in Monday and find the chicks gone.  They were excited to hold a chick before the chicks left the classroom.  Many children said, "They're so soft."  They also discovered that chicks aren't always yellow.

Baking Bread

We read the story about "The Little Red Hen."  The children decided to make their own bread.  They made "bread in a bag" today.   There was very little mess and the children loved getting to kneed the dough.   We will send the recipe home tomorrow.  Several children excitedly made the comment, "We're bakers."

The bread smelled so good baking in our new oven.   This is a convection oven that we got through a Donor's Choose grant.  We can now bake in our room and not have to borrow an oven or have Mrs. Montgomery take things home to bake.
