Catch up preschool

I have had some trouble getting the pictures to come up on my blog, so this will be a catch up with the kids for the past three weeks.
First of all, we have been watching our garden grow.  We planted tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, cantaloupe bell peppers and something is coming up that we do not know what it is.  Will keep you posted

Then we moved into the kitchen and started a project for Earth day activity.  Here are some red spots, some antennae, and some googley eyes!
 a few paint brushes

 Just take an egg carton, a paint brush and some green paint and what happens
 Brigham and Cooper shared the paint
 Sammy's caterpiller was coming along fine
 My sister , Nancy, was visiting from Texas and was able to join the fun!
On Thursday, we talked more about our world and the kids got to put stickers of the things that they love in our  world.  This one showed a dolphin, a butterfly, bugs, a child, a rose, some corn, carrots and grass.
 The dolphin and butterfly are see in the dark, so each child really loved these
 Yet another things that are liked
 and even hearts
 flowers and koala bears

This was the earth.  We talked about the creation of the world, when the earth was created, what was created each day of the week and that we rested on the 7th day.
   We found the differences between the top picture and the bottom.  Animals
 We talked about night and day.  They looked through the hole into the box and saw that it was dark.  I then opened a little square on the side of the box and flashed light into the box.  Voila, there was light!
 Not a lot of light, granted, but they got the picture
 play time:  there are monsters in the room  screams  running  giggling
 The big yellow monster
 Back to school time--tested our sight words  putting them in alphabet order--saying them out loud.

Just one more week at preK  lots of fun, confusion and laughter
