Today we woke up to a snow storm but by the time we reached preschool it was sunny! The snow all melted away leaving good mud and puddles galore. The day began with much splashing and squishing. During circle time we talked about the snow and what happens in 2 weeks....Spring! We went over the order of the seasons. We will be going over the seasons every day since the order seemed to be a mystery! Carol King has a great song "Winter spring summer or fall...You've got a friend." I think we'll learn that one!
We sang our spring song next: "I love the mountains, I love the rolling hills..." then the TOP song and we were off!
The yellow group headed to the barn to spend time with the goats and learn the names of the mom goat-doe - and the daddy goat - buck.
Then we hiked to the big bridge where we sat for snack and the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. Next time we cross the bridge we'll be checking to see if the troll is living under it.
Surprise! The blue group came up right when we were done with snack and stories and invited us to go play with them in the sun. We were off and running to the tire swing and one of our favorite tree stumps. The kids quickly remembered what they liked to do there and soon everyone was occupied either roasting marshmallows, being a dragon, looking for beads and sprouted maple seeds and swinging on the tire swing. Phew!
