We are soooooo ready for Kindergarten!

Lunch at the Zoo!
       Well, I can't believe that we are only a quarter away from my students graduating preschool and moving on to Kindergarten!  It makes me so happy, yet so sad to see them leave me!  I have seen such great things from these students over the past few months when I've been able to be their teacher.  The skills that they've gained and the learning that has taken place has been crazy awesome!  I love teaching this age because you can see their growth each and every day.  It's amazing!  I have the best job in the world!
      A few things we have done over the past few weeks  have involved our "Stars of the Week" and a great field trip to the zoo!  That was a lot of fun seeing these kids absorbing all they see at the zoo.  The weather was perfect and the animals were out, loving the sunshine!  What a fabulous field trip!!!
       We have been busy working on our last few letters of the alphabet and one of my favorite weeks was Timothy Tiger's week.  We actually had him visit our classroom and teach us all sorts of words that begin with his letter.  We sang his favorite number songs (2 & 10) and he even danced a little.  We painted with tire tracks, brushed vampire teeth with toothbrushes and "toothpaste", decorated spring trees with popcorn as blossoms, and had a monster truck race game!  All of these hands-on activities are making concrete connections to these preschooler's brains, not just for the letter name and sounds, but also for critical thinking, fine & large motor, and social skills as well.  This is the best age for these kiddos to explore and absorb all the things they see, feel and hear each day!
Timothy Tiger Visits!

Dr. Welch teaching us how to take care of our Teeth!

We had Dr. Welch come for a visit during our Timothy Tiger Week and taught us about our teeth.  He is a pediatric dentist and was so great with the kids.  They just loved him to pieces!  He taught them the good and bad things to eat and do for our teeth.  What a fun day!  Thank you Dr. Welch!!!
