TODDLER TALES

 

We are welcoming the warm weather!  

During the month of June, the toddlers will be taking full advantage of the beautiful weather by going outside and practicing their gross motor skills.  They will engage in running races, throwing and catching balls and going up and down our big hill.  

 

Being outside gives us many opportunities for teaching moments whether it is about interesting looking bugs, seeing airplanes in the sky or hearing birds sing!  We like to also bring some creativity to ourdoor play by using chalk (fine motor practice) or painting bricks with water.  We also take this time to teach them about being safe from the sun by using sunscreen and bugspray.  We love working with children in this age group as they are like "little sponges" just soaking up everything we teach and show them!

 

Have a wonderful someone everyone and we will see you again in September!

PRESCHOOL (3 year olds)

 

We are winding down on learning the alphabet.  For the first full week of June we will be focusing on the letter Z.  We are excited about making a Zoo!  Our class will also be making Father's Day gifts.  

 

For the rest of June and through the summer, we will be doing fun activities having to do with summer.  We will be doing rock painting, bubble art, and water play.  We will make squirty sidewalk chalk and play outdoor games.  A lot of picnic lunches are in the forecast as well!

 

This past school year has been a wonderful experience especially seeing how the children have grown physically, socially, and cognitively.  It will be a little sad to see them proceed to the Pre-K room in September, as we will surely miss them, but we are very proud of them and know they will do great!

PRE-K Room (4-5 year olds)

 

What an exciting academic year we have had!  

 

We are finishing up the year with the letters X,Y, Z, and U.  The children will learn to identify these letters as well as the words, x-ray, yo yo, zebra, and umbrella.

 

We are looking forward to a fun filled summer!  Some of our summer projects will be about ocean life, kites, and making bird feeders.  We are going to do some cooking and baking activities.  We will have a pajama/popcorn party and waterplay on Fridays.

 

We have so enjoyed watching the children learn and grow!  We get enjoyment from seeing the look on their faces when they "get it"!  We are excited for them to move on to their next phase of their lives by entering Kindergarten and making a whole new bunch of friends.  We wish all of them much luck and lots of love!
