Early Preschool noticed leaves on their playground, this was another change on their playground. Where were the leaves coming from? The children were given binoculars to investigate. They looked up at the trees and watched as leaves were falling. This was an introduction to using instruments to make observations.
For our STEAM Activity today, our class was able to go on a Nature walk and explore Fall. Luckily, the rain had stopped just in time! After reading the book ‘Exploring Fall’ by DeGezelle, students grabbed their own magnifying glasses and examined things that they believed to be signs of Fall. Some of the signs we discussed were the changing colors of plants, leaves on the ground, certain plants dying, and even some animals collecting food in preparation for winter. Other signs may be what kind of clothes people have on (sweaters and long pants), the chill in the air, or the lack birds who may have already migrated! We had a blast exploring our environment!
For young children, giving without expectation is a big concept to grasp.
The children in Pre-kindergarten and Kindergarten visited Johnson's Farm. They rode a hay-wagon on their way to the pumpkin patch. They also visited the apple orchard and pick apples right off the tree. The children came off the bus with bags of apples and a pumpkin they picked form the farm.
Grandparents came to hear a story and share a special snack. One Grandfather decided he wanted to read the story. The children all listened very intently to the Grandfather as he read the story. After the snack, it was time to go to the playground for more fun.
It’s no secret that we love STEAM in our classrooms.
Preschool Pathway is a program for the children who miss the cutoff for their school's date for entering Kindergarten. These children have birthdays in the Fall. This curriculum is a way to align the child without having to repeat a year.
School has started, Pre-Kindergarten is starting the year in their uniforms and ready to get their new school year started.
Does the idea of your little one asking if he can help you clear the dinner table sound like a dream?
The school said goodbye to summer with the Kona Ice truck. It was a fun summer. The children used the Splash Pad, visits from Mad Science, Acting Bugs came to put on plays with the children, Playtyme Sports taught us about golf, the Summer Camp went on field trips including visiting the Phillies and Art Adventure taught the summer camp about stop action art. It was a great summer and we can't wait until next summer.
Splash Down, is our annual family event that gives families a chance to play with their child in the Splash Pad and enjoy a pizza dinner with classmates and their parents. Fun for all!
Are you finding it hard to teach your little one how to share?
Art Adventure visited PK to create a 'Kinetic Sculpture'. A kinetic sculpture is an art piece that moves. The children layered beads and foam into any pattern they wanted. Once they were finished, the top piece was glued on and it permitted the foam pieces to move. The children were totally engrossed with the activity from Art Adventures.The activity provided the children the opportunity for hands on experience with art and science and S(science) T(technology) E (engineering) A (math) and S (science).
When children are given simple materials, they begin to build. This is the foundation of a structure built using cups and Popsicle sticks. The builder had to balance the stick from cup to cup in order to connect all the cups to build the foundation, which had to be strong enough to support other floors.
Each year as the school year hits full swing, we enter what is commonly referred to as cold and flu season.
Mad Science came to the school to present a hands on presentation about energy. They learned about kinetic and potential energy . The students explored different examples of each including Jack-in-Box, wind up cars and a marble track. The children had a blast!
Today the children could bring their favorite Teddy Bear or stuffed friend to school. The children had the chance to tell about their friend and why they are so special. Since the friends came to school, we had a picnic outside. The children selected shady places on the grass, on the climbers and under the climbers for the picnic.
Some kids are bullies, and others are the targets of bullying. And no parent wants their child on either side of this equation.
What does it look like inside a major league stadium? The campers got to see the locker room, the press box, dugout, go on the field and eat lunch while sitting in the stadium. The Phillies players feel that their winning streak is due to 'lucky bamboo'. The children brought a Primrose Lucky Bamboo so the Phillies winning streak will continue.
All the children today received a pair of sun glasses to wear in celebration of National Sun Glass Day. Since today's weather was near 90 degrees, it was a opportunity to talk about protecting your eyes on these hot summery day. The Primrose Friends got into the day and set a good example and reminder to wear sun glasses.
