Animals in Spring

We are loving Spring already but we love the animals we see in Spring too!  The animals are finally coming out of hibernation and the birds are chirping in the air!  The children did several activities this week with birds including making bird nests and bird feeders.
We can't forget about the other cute animals that come out to play in the Spring!  The 2 Year Old's made a graph to show their favorite Spring animals.
How cute are these?!  A sheep and chick made from a toilet paper roll! 
There's a school of fish in our hallway as we did "f is for fish" this week!
What's your favorite Springtime animal?

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  We are green from head to toe this week!  The children are having fun with all things green, rainbows, and four leaf clovers!  Of course, we did some really cute art projects!
We also did some activities that helped our children work on some skill sets all while having fun!  The 2 year olds practiced lacing a shamrock and the Older 1's painted pasta green and then made necklaces.  Both of these activities helped the children to practice their fine motor skills and they really enjoyed it!
Some classrooms even learned about symmetry while making rainbows.  They painted certain colors on the lines drawn on the paper and then folded the paper over to complete the rainbow on the other side.  They turned out so cute and were a great learning activity for the children!
Our Pre-K class sorted, counted, and made a chart with Lucky Charms!  What a fun activity to do to work on some math skills! 
The week isn't complete without focusing on our letter of the week!  I love this "e is for egg" craft!
 We hope some good luck finds you soon!

Spring has Sprung and we so hope it brings nice weather!  We are all so tired of this cold weather and are ready to get out on the playground!  The children learned about how the weather would be changing by the temperature warming up and seeing more rain.  One classroom did a neat art project where they made it look like it was raining!
We talked a lot this week about rain, rainbows, and wind.  For a math activity, the children did a matching game where they paired raindrops based on the number of dots on one drop and the actual number on another drop.  To observe wind, they made kites to take outside to play with!
With warmer weather, Spring also brings beautiful flowers!  Several classrooms did some flower activities as well this week.
 The 3 year olds and Pre-K class planted Sunflowers this week!  We are going to let them grow on our playground and then plant them in our front flower bed of the school.  Our little sunflowers will be so cute in front of Sunflower Station Preschool!  :)
Our letter of the week is "d" so we of course made "d is for dinosaur"!
Happy Spring!!

Dr. Seuss

This week is in honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday, one of our favorite authors!  There are always so many fun activities that take place this week!  We enjoyed reading one of his books and then doing an art project, cooking project or math activity.  We even made our own Green Eggs and Ham!

We also had some classrooms that dressed up every day and then we all had fun with Wacky Wednesday! 

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!
Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!

Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to you!
