On Monday we decided to go on a nature walk. We each wrote our name on a brown paper bag and collected leaves and flowers.
After our walk we went back into the classroom and counted how many flowers each child had collected. Some children didn't pick up any flowers and others counted up to 14 flowers. The children glued most of their findings onto paper and the rest they decided to take home.
What's gonna work? Teamwork!
Our Utopia students are such great helpers!Each child took a chair from our classroom to the yard. The teachers provided sponges and soapy water. Each child took a turn scrubbing their chair. Now our chairs are sparkling clean!
After all the fun, but hard work the teachers set up a new sprinkler. The children loved running through it. Because it was so hot outside we dried up quickly afterwards.
Kindergarten is getting closer!
There has been a lot of talk about kindergarten as we inch closer to our last day of school. So we decided to reflect on what our favorite thing about preschool was and then paint a picture about it.
Some of the responses were:
"I don't know"
When we woke up from nap on Friday one of our students mentioned that they would miss preschool so we used this opportunity to have the children draw what they will miss about preschool. These drawings were very detailed and each child took their time on the work.
On this day the responses on what they would miss about preschool were:
"Umm...Talia and Timothy...and playing."
