Our Creative Tots have done it again!!! They never seem to stop amazing us!! With the amazing help from our art teachers, Miss Pilar and Miss Erin, our tots have learned and created works of art from Piet Mondrain, Paul Klee, Claude Monet, Dale Chihuly, Georgia O’Keeffe and Birch Tree art. The children also learned about the color wheel and experimented with texture, photography, mixed media, and much more!! I hope you are as impressed and proud of our Creative Tots as we are!!

V is for Veterinarian

This month the preschoolers have been enjoying taking on the role as veterinarians in the science area. They have also been exploring letters through fine motor activities that involve molding play dough letters, beading the Letter Vv and stamping. In math the children have been reviewing patterns, determining how many in a set and matching numbers with sets through games and activities.

A Busy November

The preschoolers have been busy this month. They have been enjoying our remodeled classroom and all the new hands on activities. We have also had another interesting visit from the Cincinnati Zoo, where the children were introduced to an owl and a lizard. We ended the month of November discussing Native Americans and the first Thanksgiving.The children enjoyed beading, playing in the tee pee and dressing like Native Americans. Happy Thanksgiving to all! ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

 

Field Trip Fun!

On October 21st and 22nd the preschoolers had two beautiful fall mornings at Blooms and Berries. The children enjoyed visiting the animals, playing in the corn and using the water pumps before taking a bumpy hayride to the pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkins. The morning ended with an apple juice and popcorn snack. Yum!ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

It’s Pumpkin Time Again

The preschoolers are enjoying the Fall season by sorting shape leaves, raking leaves and cleaning pumpkins in the classroom. They are also getting into the Halloween spirit with stories, art activities and playing the spider web game during small and large group time. The children received a visit from Miss Christa of the Cincinnati Zoo. The preschoolers got a close up look at a python and armadillo. We also observed the ladybug larvae that arrived in the classroom last week.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Preschool News

Hurray Hurray for Lemonade! This week the preschoolers celebrated the color yellow by squeezing lemons and adding sugar and water to make homemade lemonade. We also did a taste test and graphed our likes and dislikes. In the dramatic play area we continued the lemonade theme by setting up our very own lemonade stand! ImageImageImageImage
