Ms. Patti and Ms. Meg T/Th Knoch Knolls 3's

We are off to a great start of the school year!  The first few weeks were filled with fun getting to know each other, our school and learning our daily routine.  We see lots of smiles and laughs all throughout the day.  It's going to be a fun year!
First full day of preschool!

Having fun with friends!
We are working on following simple one and two step directions.  They can clean the room then sit on the rug for group time!  They are recognizing letters in their name and some of their friends names.
Group time (they are all listening!!!)
We learned about the letter A.  Apple, ant, and acorn start with A.
Acorn painting.

Trying not to let the acorn roll
out of the box!

Apple prints.
Playing an apple game, helping
the worms eat the apples.

So much about nature is exciting to children.  While out on one of our walks we found Canada Rye grass.  The name is not as fun as the actual fuzzy, softness of the grass that can even tickle us!  We brought some inside and painted with it!
Painting with the fuzzy grass.

We also seen a duck sitting on a
log with a turtle....they were friends!
Catching pretend bugs.

Checking out real bugs!

Fun in the pond inside!

We are helping the children learn to understand and follow rules, use the classroom materials with purpose, safety and respect.  And of course making friends!
Scissors are fun but we have to be
careful with them.

Working together to make
a great meal.

Safety while cooking hot things!

Enjoying their hard work!
Play dough is not only a favorite for the children, it is also a great way to create anything you can think of!  We seen various masterpieces and a lot of proud smiles!
So much thinking going on!

Look what I made!

Happy face!!!

Thank you so much for trusting us with your wonderful children.  We have seen their comfort level grow as they begin to make new friendships and explore their new environment.  It's going to be a great year!
Enjoy your weekend!
