We had been working on measuring inches, so I should not have been surprised when J.P. “weighed” bananas at the museum, and told me they weighed 3 inches.
Welcome to Paula's Preschool and Kindergarten! My class blog is the place I share information about some of the fun learning activities we are doing at school. I hope to provide parents with insight into what we are doing, and why, and to share ideas with other early childhood educators. Please don't use the photos or text of this blog without permission, but please do use any ideas you find useful. Thank you for stopping by!

I asked our families to please send in one apple this week, and we made two graphs about it; which day they brought the apple to school...
...and what color apple they brought.
On Friday, we made our applesauce. I called the children to work on it one or two at a time, and of course we started (and ended) with washing our hands.
You can really see the concentration and determination on their faces as they worked on this new skill.
I did the cooking, then served up warm, fresh, cinnamon applesauce for the kiddos for snack.

The first week of school is always crazy, busy, and exciting - for the children AND the teachers. Here's a peek at some of the things we've been doing...
We put injured animals in an "ambulance" and made /a/ sounds as we drove it around.
There were new things to try out, like pattern blocks...
We ran ourselves ragged - and my dog Patriot too!
We played in the water table, and of course, got completely soaked. Good news! It is very hot, and the water helped us to feel cool and comfortable outside.
By the way, as of this writing, it's only Thursday. We still have to make and eat our applesauce tomorrow - but that's another post.
