Virtual Visit from Santa!

This week, both preschool classrooms had a virtual visit from the one and only Santa Claus! The children were so excited able to see and talk to Santa through Zoom. We had a lot of questions to ask him:

"Do you like to eat cookies?" - Elias 
"Are we getting presents? - Blake
"How do you deliver presents to kids who don't have a chimney?" - Hudson

Santa assured us that he had a special book that explained where to leave the presents if there isn't a chimney in our home. He told us that he likes cookies, but makes sure he also eats a balanced diet. Then he told the children that he was proud of them for being so friendly, kind, and patient this entire year. What a special way to celebrate the holiday season at school!

Holiday Ready!

 The children have been busy working away preparing Christmas decorations for the classroom and for their home. These activities include painting, using glue and glitter and cutting! This helps the children develop their fine motor skills, visual art skills and their language skills as they discuss Christmas decorations they have at home.

Welcome Back!

The children were so happy to be back in school, playing with friends & sharing Thanksgiving stories with teachers. Everyone was ready to get back into action in all areas of the classroom. 
Some children worked with mirrors in the Art area looking at the details of their eyes & drew them. Others were super excited to find out kinetic sand was back in their sensory kit & baked cupcakes for friends but the children couldn't wait to start building creative structures such as trains, ships, rockets, towers, camp sites and gardens in the building area & talk about what they built with each other.
It's been great having everyone back from Thanksgiving break!
