Reminder!

 It is now winter time....


Although there is no snow on the ground, it is perfectly clear to say that the air is still freezing! I do morning recess every day for the bigger kids and I know that if I am freezing, my 4kers will be freezing as well.

I would like to challenge all my parents to try and have their child's snow pants and boots at school, every day, from here on out. It is cold and they need them. 

Along with saying that, I have been asked multiple times why there winter stuff gets sent home every night. I clarified this with the office. 

All winter things will be sent home every single night due to COVID. If for some reason, out of the blue, we have to quarantine, we are not allowed to pack up any winter stuff that was left at school. All winter things are to be sent home every night so that way if quarantine were to happen, each child's things are at home so they can get washed. 

Also, if their snow items are wet from outside, they are easier to dry at home than in a closed locker at school. 

I am sorry for any inconvenience this may cause!

Birthday Treat

 Before our break for Thanksgiving, it was Kaylee's birthday! She brought in some birthday cookies to share with the afternoon class! They were delicious! 

We ate them after nap time, which is why some of them still look like they just woke up! Haha! Some of the kids chose to eat them at school while the rest of them chose to take it home to eat with mom and dad! 








Being Thankful

 For two weeks, we talked purely about being thankful and what that means. I first stated some of the things that I was thankful for. After I stated some of the things I was thankful for, I then went around the room and had each child list off anything that they could think of from the top of their heads that they were thankful for. Some children stated 2-3 things while other children stated 5-6 or even 7! All amounts are acceptable and any answer was acceptable. It shows me how quick they can think and give good answers. I was very proud of all the things that they said they were thankful for. The pictures below are 3 different days worth of how we created our turkeys and then the end project.

Spookley The Square Pumpkin

 Although it is no longer Halloween time, Spookley the Square Pumpkin is a fantastic fall movie for your child and your family. It teaches about acceptance and inclusion. I watch this movie every year with my 4K friends because I believe that it is a great movie with a lot of wonderful lessons. 

We made our own Spookleys during art time, and they turned out great!

Noah's Ark

 God created a flood that was so big and destroyed the Earth and all the unkind people that were living on it. He asked a man named Noah to build an ark. A HUGE boat big enough for two of each animal to climb on board and be safe during the flood. The boat was also big enough that Noah got to bring his entire family with him. After the flood was over, God sent a rainbow. The rainbow was a promise to Noah that God would never use a flood again to destroy the Earth. 

We created a storm and a rainbow on a paper plate that rotated with the boat. This was quite the extensive project, but the kids had fun with it and that's all that matters!
