Oh Happy Day! School Starts Up Again!

September 10, 2012 - About this Blog..., Preschool News

Thanks to all of you that attended the Preschool Family Orientation! What a fun way to start up our school year! The gentle rain made for a muddy scavenger hunt with many laughs that followed in the classrooms.

If you are a new parent to our program, check out this link to learn more about our weekly blog updates. Here goes the first post of our 2012-2013 school year!

This Week’s Adventures: Time to meet new friends and explore at The Nature Preschool!

Favorite Activities: We got to know each other as we shared our special “Me Bags” at circle time. We learned our hello and goodbye songs, too. We stamped special snack time placements and started making our nature alphabet book with the letter “Ff”. (We will be adding to this all year.) We loved making tape nature bracelets during our hike, smooshing pokeweed berries and playing hide-and-go-seek along the trail. We’ve been busy beautifying our classroom with our art this week, but be on the lookout for gorgeous work coming home next week. What a fun way to start the school year!

Next’s Week’s Theme: Animal News (letter “Aa”)

Try this at home: Go on a feather search! Look under trees and near bird feeders. Sort the feathers from big to small or by color. Try pressing them into soft soil to see if they can stand up or leave a print. Remember, you can’t keep feathers but you can have fun while taking a closer look!
