What a great Open House we had. I hope that everyone left as pumped about our new year as I was. It was wonderful to meet the new sweet kids and families and to see the " oldies" again after the summer. It is amazing how much growing a child does in the summer from three to four years old. Each day ( starting tomorrow - our first day! ) I will blog about our daily adventures. Please check here daily around 2 pm to see what we have been up to. This blog is a great way to connect with your child and talk about what they have learned. Here is the normal conversation without background knowledge. " What did you do today? " Child's response " Play." With this blog your can say " I saw that you cooked something today, what was it? Was it good? What did you do to help make it? I saw you had something new in the block center today, what was it ? Did you go for a walk today? Did you have a special visitor today?" Using this blog you can help me by building on what I am doing at school.
Here are a few pictures from last night.
This old fire truck is getting old. I actually thought earlier in the day about taking it out but then Katelyn and Emeri jumped in and rushed to a fire. When they got there Emeri grabbed the hose and put out the fire and Katelyn got a gas can ( I was worried at first... ) and made sure they truck was filled up with gas. I'll be keeping the fire truck. :)
The art center is under the loft. We added the patio lights to it. Hopefully it wont be a QA problem. They dont get too hot. LOTS of learning and creating goes on in this little space.
I moved the dress up area downstairs this year. Did you notice the old phone on the wall? It has a cord and a receiver.
This is Ty, Orrins little brother ( future student ) playing with the cars. I love the way they put them around the stump in a circle. Learning... right under our noses.
I can tell all our parents are going to have a close bond this year and that excites me. As a matter of fact, many of the mommies are having a " coffee and kleenex" party at Cafe on Broadway tomorrow morning.
The MUD KITCHEN. This will be new this year and I will admit I am a little nervous but excited too. I made mud pies when I was little .. therefore, so will they.
As we get into the year I will try to highlight each area and what we learn in those areas.
Everyone get excited tomorrow is our first day !
LEARNING IS NOT A SPECTATOR SPORT SO LETS START PLAYING !
