To hibernate or migrate...that is the question

We had another fun day at school today with Ms. Beth and Ms. Jodie!
We played a new board game with Ms. Jodie and had fun dancing and putting on a "concert" for Ms. Beth. (Hannah Montana, eat your heart out!)

In circle time we made a "web" brainstorming all the things we have learned and know about winter. We talked about different animals and whether or not they hibernate or migrate during the winter. We re-read a few of our favorite books that we have read over the past few weeks as well.

During outside time, Ms. Jodie took a group of the children on a walk. They looked to see how many different colors they could find along the way. The met a neighbor walking his dog and learned his name is Rocket. They were very excited to come back and report their findings and discoveries to the rest of us. The other group went outside to the playground and decided to do some spring cleaning. These girls emptied out the playhouse completely and swept it. Then while it was empty they took advantage of the space and played soccer in there! Eventually all the furniture items were put back in, with a new arrangement. It was great to see them work together on this project.
I will speak for myself and Ms. Jodie in saying we have had great fun with the kids the past two days! Ms. Debbie and Mr. Randy will be back Monday!


  1. It sounds like you had a full day. The girls seem to be in a habit of emptying and cleaning the playhouse lately. Not sure what is up with that but it works! Randy and I are finished with another full day of training. Randy even won a $100 gift card to Play with a Purpose. I think we will use it to get a mini stationary bike for the kids.. it is so cool. I have been looking at it for a while. You know the BEST part of these conferences? You learn a few new things but you mainly get your spark back and come back renewed. Kids are you ready ? We will be back on MOnday!

  2. Sounds like such a fun day of school.
    Ms Debbie, I think I need to attend those kinds of conferences once in awhile!!-- new ideas and a lit spark! Sounds like a revival. :-)
