Early Preschool 2 classroom was experimenting with water and large eye droppers. The activity allowed open experiment with a new tool and attempting to squeezing up all the water.

In recent weeks, a new and concerning type of coronavirus — now officially called COVID-19 — has managed to literally and figuratively “go viral.”
Thumbs Up is part of our Balanced Learning Approach, it isolates specific skills children need to strengthen as part of their physical development. This day, children were asked to jump into the hoop. The activity strengthen their legs while making a control jump.
You can see the infants are excited about having a story time. It is also noticeable that the infants recognize that a story is about to be read to them, that is why they are crawling over to the teacher. The teacher is welcoming the infants with joy and a nurturing spirit.

The Kindergarten class wrote thank you letters to the Master Sergeant who's children attend our school.The cards were hand delivered to Master Sergeant and then pictures were taken. The Master Sergeant is planning on returning to the Kindergarten class with maps to show all the countries he has visited.
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.
Who doesn’t love getting flowers?
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!
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.
We love craft projects that also double as learning activities for kids.
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.
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.
Children who participate in physical education programs are likely to become active, healthy adults.
