Bears and Hibernation

This week in Preschool we learned all about the different animals that hibernate, and more importantly why they hibernate. We learned that when a bear hibernates they go to sleep for the winter but when a bird hibernates they fly someplace warm, like Florida.

Bear art projects

Making caves for the bears to hibernate

Patterns and counting

We ended the week going on a bear hunt and playing dress up with friends!

Winter Weather and Activities

This week in Preschool we had a lot of fun creating winter themed projects and making cookies for Olaf and Sven from Frozen, we even practiced writing letters using salt.

We were all really sad that there was no snow on the ground this week. We had indoor snowball fights, practiced making snow angels, and made a band to sing winter songs in hopes that some snow would come!

Even though we missed the snow, we still enjoyed the beautiful weather with our friends!

Happy New Year!

This week in Preschool was a big celebration as we talked about the new year and all of the wonderful things we’d like to do!

We decorated the room with bright and colorful artwork, played with princesses and baby dolls, and worked on letter recognition. We ended the week with a camping trip full of laughter and stories with friends!

We hope everyone has a happy and healthy 2020!

Merry Christmas!

This was a short week for Preschool, but a fun one nonetheless! We rocked our Christmas pajamas on Monday, celebrated with our families on Tuesday/Wednesday, and shared stories from Christmas on Thursday and Friday!

We hope the holiday was filled with endless love and laughter for each of you!

Reminder

We are closed Tuesday, December 31st and Wednesday, January 1st

Santa and His Helpers

This week in Preschool we had a lot of fun talking about Santa and his helpers – the elves and reindeer! We shared what we think elves look like, what reindeer eat, how reindeer help Santa drive his sleigh, and what we would name our very own elf/reindeer!

We also finished our Christmas presents for our families and began singing our Christmas pageant songs!

We wished a very special Candy Cane a very special 3rd birthday this week!

The Nativity

This week in Preschool we focused on the true meaning of Christmas and why we celebrate in the first place. We talked about baby Jesus and the different ways we can spread Christmas joy!

Below are some of the ideas our Candy Canes came up with:

“I give my sister hugs when she cries”

“If Santa brings me makeup I’ll be happy”

“Lots of cookies!”

“I watch Christmas movies with mom and dad”
