First 2 Weeks 2018-2019


Jesus Loves Me

Theme: Farm, Friends, I am Special (Mrs. Koosman's room)
Farm, Friends, I am Special (Mrs. Strohschein's room)

The first two weeks of preschool have been so much fun! We have been getting to know new friends, practicing school routines, reading stories, and making art projects! 

We took turns squeezing oranges to make orange juice.

Playing in our new dramatic play area.
Building with legos. smells like apple pie.
We read Clifford the Big Red Dog.
I love to dress-up.
We are twins.

Ready, set, go! Let's race the marbles.

Being silly at the science table. 

Friends played in the barn with the farm animals and wagon.

We played with the toys in our classroom and shared toys with our new friends. 

 We like to do puzzles! 

We sing songs together at circle time. Some songs we sang at school were "Row, Row, Row Your Boat Gently with a Friend" and "Jesus Loves Me." 

 We paint with different materials at school! After learning about cows, we painted with milk. Mrs. Strohschein painted an example and then every friend got a chance to paint with milk! 

When blue was the color of the week, we painted with blueberries! 

We had a great start to the school year. 
Thanks for a great first two weeks!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our “Donuts with Dad” event this past week.  We were excited to have you start the morning with us.  What a special treat!  

Our caterpillars transformed into butterflies! 

We had so much fun taking turns feeling the butterflies.

They tickled our fingers!

This is so silly!

Ready, set, .... go!  Let's release the butterflies!!

The butterfly landed on my finger!

We had so much fun chasing the butterflies all over the soccer field.

They are ready to sell flowers.

We had a great morning during "Donuts with Dad."

Practicing our rhyming words together.

Playing with the marble race.

Pretending to be the teacher.

We loved having our visitors!

Thank you for taking time to play with us!

Building with the blocks and making it as long as our classroom.

We even needed to get a step stool to reach the blocks and make it even taller.

One of our favorite games to play!

Having fun with the sensory table.

Sorting out our elephants.

They made their own campsite.
