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!

Caterpillars, cows and other C things

 As usual, we had a busy week of learning and fun at school.  Ms. Julie brought in a giant Clifford stuffed animal, so we had Clifford books and a Clifford listening center.

 We played with the construction vehicles in dirt outside - then the children helped me put the dirt into the garden so we can put another medium in the sensory table next week.

 We pulled objects that start with C out of a clown cup...
 ... and painted with car tires.
 Of course we had to read the ever popular The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, and this year I found stickers to go along with the book, so the children sequenced the stickers and retold the story.  Unfortunately the stickers did not come with a butterfly - so we drew our own butterflies to finish the story.

 For snack that day we ate the first five fruits the caterpillar tried: apples, oranges, plums, strawberries and pears.  They were tasty!
 We even found a real caterpillar while we were outside playing, and the children observed it for a long time.

 One of our friends even brought in a cow skull for us!  We have the coolest things to check out and observe in our play space!
