H ... is for Horse (Nov 9th)

Today we made horses to celebrate the letter H. We talked about the sound the letter H makes and got new homework sheets. There is no class on Thursday due to Veteran's Day so we had to pack a lot into one class. Grace & Reese got to choose the songs we sang. Reese want the 'Itsy Bitsy Spider' because we get to hold these cool spider masks, Grace choose 'You are My Sunshine' probably for the same reason. We have these cool sunshine masks. I will have to remember to pics of them. They are so cute. Aidan brought our treat this week. Imagine my surprise - more fishy cracks, this time they were Parmesean flavored. Yummy! The kids gobbled them up and strawberries are always a big hit. What sealed the deal were the juice boxes, I think they liked those the most. Not a drop was left. Good job Aidan. See you next week.

G ... is for goat (Nov 2nd)

This week we talked about the letter G and ovals. For the letter G we made goats and read a story about a goat named Gregory who ate all the food he wasn't supposed to. He loved veggies and fruits but his parents thought that was weird and wanted him to eat shoelaces and tires like everyone else. Speaking of food, Cece brought our snack this week. She brought pizza flavored fishy crackers. I didn't even know there was such a thing, but they were a HUGE success. On Thursday we made Humpty Dumpty and learned the rhyme that goes along with it. I'm sad I forgot my camera to take pictures. Their Humpty Dumpty's were so cute. They each had their own personalities.

F ... is for Fox (Oct 26th)

another day without pictures, but we talked about the letter F. Tessa brought strawberries and cheese and crackers to share for snack (the most popular time of the day)  - it was a good day. Thanks Tessa.

E ... is for Elephant (Oct 19th)

I don't have any pictures from this day, but we talked about the letter E and I told a story with puppets, about an elephant that wanted friends but people were so scared of him because he was so big. Finally he found some one who was brave enough to be his friend and they were the best of friends. On Thursday of this week we made fruit loop necklaces which you can see many pictures of in a previous post.

Picture Day - Oct 19th

No. This is not a modeling ad. No. These kids are not famous child actors - they are just extremely good looking and clean up nice on picture day. Luckily, I have an inside contact and my friend Jenna from Jameson Photos came and took school pictures for us. 

She captured their sweet little personalities.

and made already adorable kids come to life through pictures.

Don't they look fabulous!

We love Jenna because she's good, she's able to work with them even when their being not so easy to work with, and she is very reasonable. Yeah for Picture Day!
