Hope to see you soon!
I hope these pictures bring a smile to your day!
We hope you are all doing well!
We miss seeing you all every day and we wanted to check in to see how everyone is doing. Although we will be apart for a few weeks, we wish to remain connected to our students and their families. We also wanted to reach out to share some ideas of ways to "keep learning alive" while we are away from school. We will be keeping in touch with you through our blog and through email. Let us know how you have been keeping busy and all the fun things you have been doing. We hope you will share the pictures in this blog with your preschooler so that they can see their friends and feel connected to their classroom.
Miss Jen and Miss Julie will both be checking email daily, so if you have a question or concern about your child, please reach out to us. We are here for you!
Kindness during the month of February
We also explored our curriculum unit, "IMAGINE IT, MAKE IT". Students learned that their imaginations can help them build, create, explore and dream! They built with a variety of materials including different kinds of blocks and even marshmallows! They created with art materials and tools that included spatulas, rollers, dobbers and even salad spinners!

Make some playdough...
You will need:
2 cups flour
1 cup salt
1 TBS vegetable oil
2 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
2 cups cold water
Food coloring - color of your choice!
Mix all ingredients in a pot. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. Continue stirring until the mixture thickens and forms into a ball. Remove from heat, let cool a few minutes and then knead on a floured surface. Lots of fun for all ages!
