Seager 3's

As we write this blog we can’t believe it’s the last one of the year. We have had the honor and privilege of being your children’s teachers. We have made many memories along the way and the preschoolers have been become the greatest little explorers. 


The last few weeks of school were spent outside enjoying outdoor centers. Playing in water, using bubbles to paint, exploring the field and finding all kinds of treasures to take home to you!








We hope that your summer is filled with lots of adventures and lots of fun! We want to thank all the parents, grandparents, caregivers, siblings and anyone else who was apart of this amazing year. We are so proud of all our preschoolers! 




Thanks, 
Ms. Ashly and Ms. Sabine

As we write this we can't believe this is our last blog of the year. This year has flow by and we are so proud of our Explorers!
The Pre-K enjoyed spending most of their day outside doing outdoor centers and taking adventures. We found "mountains" to climb, "oceans" to cross and enjoyed all the adventures. 



We want to thank all the parents, grandparents, caregivers, siblings or anyone that was apart of this amazing year. We are so proud of all of you and know you will do amazing things!

Have a wonderful summer!

It has been a pleasure for us to be front row to watching your students grow and bloom.  It seems like yesterday, they came into the room nervous and shy.  Fast forward to yesterdays moving on ceremony, the students performed confident with a room full of friends. We have loved being along for the ride of that journey.

The coolest sensory table in town.
Thank you for logging in to check out our final blog!  It has been an absolutely fabulous year!  We have enjoyed teaching your children and will cherish all the memories that we made together.

The last couple weeks of school we have been busy enjoying the beautiful weather.  The outdoor classroom has been a big hit with the students.  We have been out digging up dirt, splashing in water and exploring nature.

Painting on the outdoor easel
The kids adjusted very nicely to a change in routine.  They seemed to be very pleased with moving the classroom outside.  We still enjoyed all of our stations, science, math, writing and art; just in a new environment.  We even enjoyed our snack outside as a class.  
By far one of our favorite places has been our new sensory tables and outdoor kitchen.  The working sink has been a huge hit with the kids.  Many buckets full of "nature soup".  The class has enjoyed moving freely through all the available activities outside.  They have done a marvelous job of following all the directions outside.
The outdoor kitchen is fully operational!
We have also been very busy working on our graduation projects and songs.  We are really looking forward to sharing our special day with our family and friends.
Working on our guitars!
Some of our favorite memories from the year have been:
-playing at the park
-the sensory tables
-family snow day
-spring tea
-Halloween!
-throwing the pumpkin off the bridge
-building with friends
-the Olympic ceremony
-singing the Goldfish song


Thank you for sharing your children with us.  It has been a pleasure getting to know them and watch them grow.  We hope you have a wonderful summer!
Until next time,
Ms. Brittany and Ms. Kim

This is the final blog for the end of the school year and what an amazing year we had!   Thank you for sharing your children with us for their first year of preschool.

 On our last day of school, each child brought their favorite stuffed animal friend to tell about and share with the class.  We brought beach towels and blankets to sit on and ate a picnic snack with our stuffed friends for our Teddy Bear Picnic.

Enjoying a "picnic" snack with our friends


The last two weeks, we learned words that rhyme by selecting objects out of our rhyming basket (dog/frog; house/mouse; boat/goat; cat/hat/bat).  We sorted colored counting bears as well as counted pegs to name the corresponding numerals.


Sorting bears by color
Magnetic Puzzles

In art, our class enjoyed the  Under the Table drawing with markers and paper taped to the underside of the table.  We  stamping under the sea figures on blue paper and created a bear’s face with geometric shapes.

In Science, we explored many varieties of sea shells using magnifying glasses.

"Look at all the different shells"


In the sensory table, many varieties of ocean creatures swam.

In dramatic play, we learned about what activities we might do during the summer and one of them was camping.  Our class had lots of fun playing in our camping tent set up in the classroom and sitting around the campfire pillow.
Camping is fun!
Dressing up and holding the campfire pillow.


In gym, our class loved the beach ball games on the parachute.  We also enjoyed taking turns to roll the activity dice.  We could "stomp like a dinosaur", jump 5 times, wiggle like a worm and fly like a bird across the gym.

We thank you for the privilege of teaching your children this past school year.  We will miss their smiling faces.  We hope you have a wonderful summer!
