I am hoping folks are enjoying these posts even though there are no comments on the site. I know that you all are doing your best to juggle a new normal and when I view these photos they definitely warm my heart….
Miss Carol’s idea to come together on Friday and plant flowers for our moms is the perfect springtime preschool project. Miss Carol, Amy and I have been busy dropping off planting bags and taking the time to say hello to preschoolers and their families (at a safe distance). One parent wrote “my child was ecstatic after your visit. Her mood instantly lifted and she came in skipping and singing.” I know as a teacher it does my heart good to reconnect with as many of you as I can.
I am posting and sharing some recent photos that were sent to me. They are great examples of how very busy preschoolers can be even when not at school. I hope you enjoy them!
We had a rockin’ good time this morning at our preschool gathering. For those of you that couldn’t be there we had a read aloud called “The Poky Little Puppy, ” got up and moved to an exercise video, and shared some things from home. During our sharing we had a beautiful rendition of “Blackbird Singing in the Dead of Night,” played and sung by Jalynn on her pink ukulele.
This Wednesday, Ms. Neal, our Art Teacher, will join us at 9:30am to do a drawing activity with us. Get your markers and paper ready!
On Friday morning we will again gather at 9:30am. and do a planting activity together for Mother’s Day. Hoping you can join us on both days.
Parents continue to send in photos of their children showing us what they have been up to…biking, planting, and picking up trash in the neighborhood to help make a difference in our world. Way to go!!
Children continue to email me photos of themselves during this time and I know I enjoy seeing some of the things they are doing.. Here are the most recent ones I’ve received.. Outdoor play, drawing, and creating. Taking care of the cows!
I hope that these postings have been helpful and I would appreciate your feedback in the Comments section. I check it frequently and I think it’s a good way for me to monitor whether or not I am providing you with helpful ideas during these unusual times.
In this post, I am including some Math Activities that are hands-on and fun to do. Please paste the link below in your browser to try them out.
This site DEY is working hard to encourage young children to limit their screen time. During the Covid-19 pandemic DEY realizes that sometimes our only way to communicate with friends and loved ones is by using technology and they are supporting that during this new normal. They have posted some offscreen ideas for families on their website and I have pasted some of those below.
As we begin another week I thought your preschooler/preschoolers might enjoy Dorothy Cresswell’s Curious Giraffe Show. Dorothy has a wonderful way of connecting with young children through the use of puppet friends and song. It’s something they can do independently.
I am looking forward to seeing as many of you as can join us on Friday morning April 24th at 9:30am. when Ms. Liz gets us all up and moving. So make room in your house to get those dancing feet going..
A few parents have sent me photos of their children during our time at home. I decided to post some so that you can see what others are up to. I miss you all! I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do…I am also posting an exercise video that will get kids moving! (Thanks to Cindy and Lynn our PT mavens)
